Marvel, K., 2017: The cloud conundrum. Sci. Amer., 317, no. 6, 72-77, doi:10.1038/scientificamerican1217-72.

To accurately predict how much warmer climate change will make the earth, scientists must determine the infl uence of clouds, which is signifi cant. Computer models have diffi culty simulating the changing nature of clouds, but improved satellite data are providing some strong clues: high clouds are likely to get higher, cloudy and clear bands may shift from lower latitudes toward the poles, and clouds may become less icy and more watery. Data indicate that the trends that amplify warming are strong and the trends that slow warming are weaker than anticipated.
