The objective of the Ice in Clouds Experiment (ICE) was to focus on the following long term scientific goal: To show that under given conditions, direct ice nucleation measurement(s), or other specific measurable characteristics of the aerosol, can be used to predict the number of ice particles forming by nucleation mechanisms in selected clouds. Improved quantitative understanding of the roles of thermodynamic pathway, location within the cloud, and temporal dependency are also sought.
