Does pollution affect cloud formation?
Pollution does affect cloud formation. In the case of aerosol pollutants, if the air pollutants reflect the sun's light, the cloud cover increases. If they absorb it, cloud growth is stunted.
Three factors that must be present for cloud formation are; hydroscopic nuclei, moisture, and cooling process. Amounts of the above affect cloud formation. Do you mean the affect of precipitation? Or does this answer your question? Furthermore, Precipitation will affect the mass of a cloud as well as evaporation and sublimation. Hope this helps.
