Hallar, A.G., J.A. Huffman, and A. Fridlind, 2012: Biological aerosol effects on clouds and precipitation. Eos Trans. Amer. Geophys. U., 93, no. 51, 539, doi:10.1029/2012EO510011.

"Bioaerosol Effects on Clouds Workshop;Steamboat Springs, Colorado, 5-6 August 2012". Bioaerosols such as bacteria have been proposed as significant contributors to cloud ice nucleation, but too little is known about the properties and impacts of bioaerosol and other ice nuclei to make reliable conclusions about their wide-scale impact on clouds and precipitation. During late summer an international group of 40 participants met at a Steamboat Springs ski resort to share perspectives on bioaerosol sources, activity, and influence on clouds. Participants who were invited collectively spanned a broad range of expertise, including atmospheric chemistry, microbiology, micrometeorology, and cloud physics, as well as a broad range of research approaches, including laboratory measurement, field measurement, and modeling. Tours of Storm Peak Laboratory ( were offered before and after the workshop.
