Workshop to Explore Science Opportunities and Concepts for a Large-Scale Aerosol-Cloud-Turbulence Research Facility

Pi Chamber Simulation Workshop

workshop participants

 The workshop took place May 23-24, 2019 at Michigan Technological University, with the purpose of discussing simulation and modeling efforts related to the Pi Chamber. Specifically, part of the focus was to develop a cloud-chamber case for the Cloud Modeling Workshop to be held in 2020 prior to the International Conference on Clouds and Precipitation in Pune, India.
