Scientists want to solve puzzle of excess water vapor near cirrus clouds
A number of researchers in recent years have reported perplexing findings of water vapor at concentrations as much as twice what they should be in and around cirrus clouds high in the atmosphere, a finding that could alter some conclusions about climate change. View News Article (2006-12-01)

Ice clouds put Mars in the shade
Until now, Mars has generally been regarded as a desert world, where a visiting astronaut would be surprised to see clouds scudding across the orange sky. However, new results show that the arid planet possesses high-level clouds that are sufficiently dense to cast a shadow on the surface. View News Article (2008-01-17)

Ice has a starring role - CMD19/CMMP with The Physics Congress 2002
When even moderately hot stars like our Sun have surface temperatures of around 6,000°C, it is hard to imagine that ice plays an important part in their formation. But that`s exactly what astrophysicists have recently discovered by turning to surface scientists for help. At the Condensed Matter conference on Monday 8 April, part of the Institute of Physics Congress in Brighton, Dr Mark... View News Article (2002-03-26)
