Trap, lidars and probes for cloud studies

By means of instruments embarked on microlights, scientists are trying to predict with greater precision the formation of clouds, especially those that bring heavy rain and thunderstorms.
The objective is to help authorities make decisions, such as launching an evacuation operation, in order to prevent a natural disaster from turning into a human tragedy.

CNRS Images,

Our work is guided by the way scientists question the world around them and we translate their research into images to help people to understand the world better and to awaken their curiosity and wonderment.
