Lubken and his colleagues ran computer simulations to model the northern hemisphere's atmosphere and noctilucent clouds from 1871 to 2008 to simulate the effect of greenhouse gases and water vapour on these clouds over this period of time.
Researchers also note that the plumes on Enceladus also contained ice and dust particles unlike Europa, which only had water vapour.
The main purpose of this study is to evaluate the influence of yarn and finishing process to the water vapour resistance of knitted fabrics.
Atmospheric carbon dioxide, methane and water vapour, together with changes in ocean circulation and productivity, all produce positive feedbacks to small changes in climate induced by Milankovitch changes in radiative forcing.
Eventually, the water vapour will freeze, to become small ice particles.

Heat is generated as a result of compressing atmospheric air, which means the air can hold water vapour as it passes through the compression stage.
The term absolute humidity is less common: it describes the actual amount of water vapour in the air in g/[m.sup.3].
Scientists at the University of Miami Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science have confirmed that the increased water vapour level in the upper troposphere is a result of human activities.
Warm air can carry lots of moisture as water vapour, but as it comes into contact with the cold air, just above the sea surface, it starts to cool and can no longer hold as much.
The company has introduced a new instrument--the WVTR MK VI--to measure the water vapour permeability of packaging materials--which are the cause of freezer burn.
