Human Induced versus Naturally Occurring Aerosols
This animation juxtaposes ocean clouds and city clouds. They zoom to the particle-detail level to show differences in aerosol particle composition and back out to show that clouds over oceans are taller and darker than those over cities. I collected the time-lapse footage and researched, modeled, and animated the microscopic aerosols. They were created as part of the Glory satellite mission in 2008-2009.
