NASA studies clouds to learn more about Earth's changing climate. We can study clouds both from the ground and by using space-based instruments.
Clouds influence Earth’s weather and climate.
Clouds form when individual water molecules combine into droplets.
NASA researchers study clouds in order to better understand and predict how Earth’s climate is
