By catalyzing primary ice nucleation of cloud droplets, ice nucleating particles (INPs) initiate the majority of precipitation. In addition, by modifying cloud optical properties they also impact radiative forcing. Here we present a multi-season study (October 2018 to April 2019) of INPs active via the immersion freezing mechanism during the Cloud, Aerosol, and Complex Terrain Interactions (CACTI) experiment, which took place in north central Argentina, a worldwide hotspot for mesoscale convective storms. The region has diverse potential natural INP sources, including native grassland and pasture, ...
