    Clouds Clouds Presentation Transcript

    • Clouds: the basics
    • Formation
      • Three requirements for clouds to form
    • Moisture
      • There must be sufficient water vapor in the air to build a cloud.
      • In the Cloud in a jar experiment this was provided by the boiling water
    • Cooling Air
      • The air temperature must decrease enough for water vapor to condense.
      • (You see snow on mountain tops because it is cooler at high altitudes…. Clouds form high in the sky because the air is cooler up their)
      • The ice and the cold jar accomplished this in our experiment
    • Condensation nuclei
      • Simpler than it sounds
      • Tiny particles, invisible to the human eye, such as dust, dirt, and pollutants, provide surfaces on which water molecules can gather and condense into water droplets.
      • The smoke provided the tiny particles in the Experiment
    • Types of Clouds
      • Many different classification
      • Altitude
        • Cirrus – High
        • Alto – Mid
        • Stratus - Low
      • Nimbus/Nimbo: associated with precipitation
      • Cumulus fluffy
    • Stratus
      • Also means layered clouds (flat)
    • Cumulus
      • Clumpy puffy clouds
    • Cirrus
      • composed of ice crystals
      • Thin and wisplike strands
    • Cumulonimbus Clouds
      • much larger and more vertically developed than fair weather cumulus
      • Are associated with powerful thunderstorms
    • Many more
      • alto-cumulus - Middle-level, medium-sized puffy clouds. alto-stratus - Middle-level, layered clouds. cirro-cumulus - High-altitude, small, wispy, patchy, puffy clouds. cirro-stratus - High-altitude, thin, wispy clouds in layers. cirrus - High-altitude, thin, wispy clouds. cumulo-nimbus - Large, dense, towering clouds that cause thunderstorms. cumulus - Low, puffy clouds. fog - Ground-hugging clouds. nimbo-stratus - Low, dark, rain cloud. stratus - Low, layered, horizontal, wispy clouds with a flat base. strato-cumulus - Low clouds, broad and flat on the bottom, puffy on top (higher than cumulus and lower than altocumulus).
