NPR Talk of the Nation Science Friday Audio Story: New work in the journal Science suggests that bacteria may have played an important role in guiding the formation of the snow and rain forming ice crystals found in high-level clouds. The researchers looked at snow samples from around the globe — including Montana, France and Antarctica — and found that cells and cell fragments were a significant part of the aerosol particles that lead to the formation of ice and raindrops. Brent C. Christner, a member from the research team, talks with guest host Joe Palca about the connection between microbiology and meteorology.
