【Direct evidence to show ice nuclei released by rain are biological aerosols】
A research team of Dr. Atsushi Matsuki at Division of Atmospheric Environmental Studies published a paper in Atmosphere.
Based on the unique single particle analyses, the team composed of experts including Dr. Atsushi Matsuki (Division of Atmospheric Environmental Studies), Dr. Ayumi Iwata (Keio University), Dr. Teruya Maki (Kanazawa University) and others, provided direct evidence to show that highly active ice nuclei released into the atmosphere during rain are actually of biological origin.
