Clouds play a controlling role in the atmosphere, in large part because they cool it during daytime by reflecting sunlight to space. In recent decades clouds have been a primary target for climate modification because the addition of tiny aerosol particles to clouds can clearly be shown to make them brighter. However, clouds are highly dynamic creatures, and their overall response at the global scales that matter most to climate change is much harder to measure. and their overall response at the global scales that matter most to climate change is much harder to measure.
