Transcript of "Cloud Type Photographs"

  1. 1. This presentation is a classroom resource from Windows to the Universe with funding from the Center for Multi-Scale Modeling of Atmospheric Processes (CMMAP) and the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR). Cloud TYPE PHOTOGRAPHS www.windows.ucar.edu
  2. 2. Altocumulus Clouds Occasionally altocumulus clouds show vertical development and produce tower-like extensions. These altocumulus clouds are in the early stages of development. Image courtesy of the UCAR Digital Image Library
  3. 3. Altocumulus Clouds Sometimes altocumulus clouds appear as white or gray puffy masses in ripples or waves. Image courtesy of Peggy LeMone
  4. 4. Altocumulus Clouds Photo of altocumulus clouds at sunset Image courtesy of Peggy LeMone
  5. 5. Altostratus Clouds This is an image of altostratus clouds. Notice the difference in thickness and color in the clouds. Image courtesy of Keith G. Diem
  6. 6. Altostratus Clouds This image of altostratus clouds was taken in Boulder, Colorado. Image courtesy of Carlye Calvin
  7. 7. Altostratus Clouds This photograph of altostratus clouds was taken in Calgary, Canada. Notice the bright part of the cloud that is covering the sun. Image courtesy of Peggy LeMone
  8. 8. Cirrocumulus Clouds Sometimes cirrocumulus clouds are made up of groups of small, rounded puffs (like the clouds in this image), and sometimes they appear in long, parallel bands. Image courtesy of the UCAR Digital Image Gallery
  9. 9. Cirrocumulus Clouds Cirrocumulus clouds sometimes appear in parallel bands like these clouds. This is also called a &quot;mackerel sky&quot; because the clouds look like the scales of a mackerel fish. Image courtesy of the UCAR Digital Image Gallery
  10. 10. Cirrocumulus Clouds This photograph includes cirrocumulus clouds in the center and top of the image and cumulus clouds in the center and lower portion of the image. Notice that the cirrocumulus cloud cells appear smaller than the cumulus clouds. Image courtesy of Bob Henson/UCAR
  11. 11. Cirrostratus Clouds This image of cirrostratus clouds was taken near Moab, Utah. Image courtesy of Anne Pharamond
  12. 12. Cirrostratus Clouds This is an image of cirrostratus clouds. Image courtesy of NASA
  13. 13. Cirrostratus Clouds This is an image of cirrostratus clouds. You can see the sun through these clouds, as well as a big halo or circle around the sun. Image courtesy of NOAA’s National Weather Service
  14. 14. Cirrus Clouds Cirrus clouds are composed entirely of ice and consist of long, thin, wispy streamers. They are commonly known as &quot;mare's tails&quot; because of their appearance. Image courtesy of Lisa Gardiner
  15. 15. Cirrus Clouds This is an image of cirrus clouds. These clouds are thin, wispy, and feathery. Image courtesy of the UCAR Digital Image Library
  16. 16. Cirrus Clouds Cirrus clouds may appear even over some of the world's driest areas, such as the high Atacama Desert of northern Chile. Image courtesy of Caspar Ammann
  17. 17. Cumulonimbus Clouds This cumulonimbus cloud has the characteristic anvil-shaped top. Image courtesy of the UCAR Digital Image Library
  18. 18. Cumulonimbus Clouds This photograph of a cumulonimbus cloud was taken near Fort Lupton, Colorado. You can see some towers growing in this cloud. Image courtesy of Gregory Thompson
  19. 19. Cumulonimbus Clouds This cumulonimbus cloud is well-developed and shows the characteristic anvil-shape. Image courtesy of Roberta Johnson
  20. 20. Cumulus Clouds Cumulus clouds are puffy white or light gray clouds that look like floating cotton balls. They have sharp outlines and a flat base. Image courtesy of Carlye Calvin
  21. 21. Cumulus Clouds This image of cumulus clouds was taken in in the mountains of Colorado. You can tell this was taken in the mountains because some of the clouds appear to be below the person taking the photograph! Image courtesy of Olga and Sergei Kuznetsov
  22. 22. Cumulus Clouds This image of cumulus clouds was taken in the Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve near Alamosa, Colorado. Image courtesy of Olga and Sergei Kuznetsov
  23. 23. Nimbostratus Clouds This image of nimbostratus clouds was taken in Seattle, WA. Notice the rain falling out of the clouds, as well as the rainbow! Image courtesy of Peggy LeMone
  24. 24. Nimbostratus Clouds Nimbostratus clouds are dark gray with a ragged base. Image courtesy of English Wikipedia
  25. 25. Nimbostratus Clouds This image of nimbostratus clouds was taken in Victoria, BC, Canada. Notice that you can’t see the edges of the clouds. Image courtesy of the University of Victoria School-Based Weather Station Network
  26. 26. Stratocumulus Clouds This photo is of stratocumulus clouds at sunset. Image courtesy of Carlye Calvin/UCAR
  27. 27. Stratocumulus Clouds This is an image of stratocumulus clouds. These clouds are low, lumpy, and gray. Image courtesy of Peggy LeMone
  28. 28. Stratocumulus Clouds These stratocumulus clouds appear in linear clumps across the sky. Image courtesy of Olga and Sergei Kuznetsov
  29. 29. Stratus Clouds This image of stratus clouds was taken in San Giamano, Tuscany, Italy. The stratus cloud appears as fog on the ground. Image courtesy of Sara Martin
  30. 30. Stratus Clouds This image of stratus clouds was taken at sunrise in eastern Colorado. Stratus clouds usually cover the entire sky. Image courtesy of Gregory Thompson
  31. 31. Stratus Clouds This type of stratus cloud forms in mountainous areas. Image courtesy of Olga and Sergei Kuznetsov
