Default Atlas of the Atmosphere

"The air is teeming with microbes, and scientists are finally starting to understand how they influence everything from meteorology to epidemiology.
Every cubic meter of air holds up to 100 million microorganisms, but the diversity and behavior of these microbes remains masked to microbiologists — until recently, that is -...microbes also help create the intricately beautiful designs in snowflakes and facilitate the formation of clouds, for example. Studying them, researchers say, could give insight into how to better monitor global climate change, as well as predict and track weather cycles and disease and allergen outbreaks."
See Atlas of the atmosphere - The Scientist - Magazine of the Life Sciences - A lot of speculation here, but still interesting reading.
