Researchers burn kerosene in an oil lamp under a ventilation hood. They pressurize
      the air with a pump to suck the smoke into the cloud chamber. The experiments in the
      cloud chamber have allowed the researchers to understand that the longer soot particles
      are in the atmosphere, the more opportunities they have to become cloud-processed,
      and the greater the chance the particles become compacted.
