Globally coupled phase oscillator populations under the action of common noise are considered. Our numerical investigations show that, if the oscillators are desynchronized through global coupling, application of weak common noise leads to the formation of clusters in such systems. At stronger noises, the transition to full noise-induced synchronization takes place. The observed behavior is general and should be important for a broad variety of applications.
