Cosmic rays and climate — the CERN CLOUD experiment


A slide show titled Cosmic Rays and Climate has been prepared by Jasper Kirkby of CERN as an introduction to CERN’s CLOUD experiment which “aims to study and quantify the cosmic ray-cloud mechanism in a controlled laboratory experiment” and answer “the question of whether – and to what extent – the climate is influenced by solar/cosmic ray variability”. Two slides are shown above (click on images to enlarge). The show is well worth viewing. h/t WUWT
