TF6.7.6 SBIR Coral Sydney Institute of Marine Science
Marine cloud brightening is the process of increasing the reflectivity of low lying marine clouds so they reflect a greater proportion of the suns radiative energy back into space. This cools the ocean waters below and reduces the light stress on corals, both of which are implicated in the bleaching process. Cloud reflectivity over the ocean is often limited by the concentration of suitable aerosols for individual cloud droplets to condense onto. Additional aerosols can be supplied in the form of nanosized salt crystals, formed by spraying micron sized seawater droplets into the air and allowing them to evaporate. The process requires only energy and seawater as inputs, and is scalable from regional to the entire GBR
