  • 1. Clouds Junhel C. Dalanon, DMD, MAT SNSCLC – Minglanilla Minglanilla, Cebu, Philippines 6046
  • 2. Clouds
    • Particles of liquid water that are suspended in the air
    • Major Types:
      • Cirrus
      • Cumulus
      • Stratus
      • Nimbus
  • 3. Types of Clouds
    • Cirrus
    • Cumulus
    • Cirrocumulus
    • Altocumulus
    • Stratocumulus
    • Cumulonimbus
    • Altostratus
    • Nimbustratus
  • 4. Cirrus Clouds
    • Highest clouds
    • Thin
    • White
    • Wispy
    • Made of Ice Crystals
  • 5. Cumulus Clouds
    • Condensed moisture of rising air currents
    • Large
    • Puffy
    • Associated with fair weather
  • 6. Cirrocumulus
    • Visible as patches of cotton
    • Groups or lines
  • 7. Altocumulus
    • White or gray patch
    • Roundish structure
  • 8. Stratocumulus
    • Big
    • Round
    • Soft appearance
  • 9. Cumulonimbus
    • Associated with thunderstorms
    • Flat tops
    • Resembling a cauliflower
  • 10. Altostratus
    • Streaked appearance
    • Gray to bluish color
  • 11. Nimbostratus
    • Dark, gray clouds
    • Accompanied by rains
  • 12. What is responsible for their forms?
    • Varying air
    • Moisture conditions
  • 13. Prefix Meanings
    • Nimbus – dark rain clouds; associated with precipitation
    • Alto – from 2-6 kilometers above earth’s surface
    • Cirro – if distance is more than 6 kilometers
  • 14. Rain
    • Most common precipitate
    • Clouds are the source of rain
    • Measured by rain gauge
    • Formed at temperatures above freezing point
    • Drizzle – formed if rain is very light; barely touches the ground
  • 15. Cloud Seeding
    • Stimulates artificial rain
    • Spraying clouds with dry ice or silver iodide crystals to hasten condensation
    • Burning silver iodide mixtures from burners on the ground is the most effective method
    • Importance:
      • Produce artificial rain
      • Dispersing super cooled fog at airports
