Beautiful and transient, clouds are one of the most dynamic and complex elements of the atmosphere. Their formation and lifetime depend on processes that happen at the microscopic and global level and everything in between. The U.S. Department of Energy Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) User Facility makes measurements to better understand those complex processes. This talk will describe what we are learning about clouds and how it will help us make better predictions of weather and climate.
