This chapter discusses the characteristic parameters of cloud particle precursors and the sensitivities of warm (liquid) and cold (mixed-phase and ice) cloud formation relevant to particle properties. It focuses on the atmospheric aerosol, linking various particle sources to their contributions to cloud particle precursor populations. The chapter also discusses how past and future changes in aerosol sources might influence cloud particle precursor types, properties, and concentrations.

Keywords:   cloud particle precursors, cloud formation, aerosol, ice clouds, mixed-phase clouds, atmospheric aerosol
