Study: Raindrop size can help to identify habitable planets

The behavior and size of the raindrops can help to identify habitable planets beyond the solar system, a new study has claimed.

Researchers from Harvard University undertook the study, according to which, the raindrops are remarkably similar throughout the planetary environment.

In the Journal of Geophysical Research, it has been published. The researchers are trying to understand how clouds evolve.

“If we understand how individual raindrops behave, we can better represent rain in complex climate models,” Robit Wordsworth, the senior author of the paper, said.

“We can use this behaviour to guide us as we model cloud cycles on exoplanets,” according to Loftus.
