Description of Presentation:

What Does a Cloud Weigh? Investigating the invisible, and the counter-intuitive. What seems so obvious, is perhaps not so. Who hasn't seen clouds floating in the sky? But what exactly are clouds? And do they weigh anything? What "mass" is hanging over us, and what does this mean to the system of natural processes that make life possible on planet Earth?
