It is known that anthropogenic greenhouse gases lead to a warmer climate. We also affect climate by producing particles which spawn clouds. New aircraft and field instruments help us understand their climate impact and understand puzzling previous results. There remain limitations of current instruments, which can be solved with new technology. We will conclude with how this technology can be used better understand climate and precipitation not only on Earth, but also for nearby and exoplanets.
