The cloud formation in any locality is an important feature of most weather situations and provides the meteorologist with valuable information when preparing a forecast. Summary of cloud types The names and descriptions of the various cloud types have been agreed internationally by the World Meteorological Organisation. The earliest cloud classification, prepared in , contained five types derived from Latin words cirrus meaning thread , cumulus heap , stratus layer , nimbus grey rain cloud and fractus broken.

The present classification is an amplification and combination of these. Briefly, cirrus clouds are of a feathery or fibrous appear- ance; cumulus are cauliflower shaped above with a flattish base; stratus clouds form a more or less shapeless or homogenous layer or sheet; nimbus clouds have a uniform dark grey and threatening appearance, often with precipitation or virga trailing beneath.

Cloud types are further divided into three groups based upon their height above the observer: high, medium and low. Description of cloud types see photos 1 to 16 Stratus St A more or less continuous layer or sheet of cloud, similar in appearance to fog but rarely touching the ground except in the case of high land.

When it does touch the ground it is indistinguishable from fog. When broken up into patches by the wind it is called fractostratus Fs.

Height of base generally between metres feet and metres 2, feet. Nimbostratus Ns A low, dark grey, shapeless and somewhat ragged cloud, of rainy appearance, often having below it pieces of scud termed Fractostratus Fs from which precipitation may often fall; when it does it is usually continuous. Height of base is usually between metres feet and metres 2, feet but may be either very close to the surface or is sometimes as high as 1, metres 4, feet. They are often arranged in lines or groups orientated in one or two directions.

When covering the whole sky they give it a wavy appearance. Height of base is usually between about metres 1, feet and 1, metres 4, feet. See also altocumulus and cirrocumulus. Cumulus Cu Whitish cauliflower shaped clouds with a more or less flat base and appreciable vertical thickness. They vary in size and vertical extent and can develop up to great heights see Cb.

These clouds are a feature of the trade wind area but can occur anywhere. In certain conditions of light, parts of these look dark. Base height is usually between about metres 1, feet and 1, metres 5, feet. The thundercloud, a cumulus type of cloud but of great vertical extent.

The top, instead of being rounded like a cauliflower, looks more mountainous or may grow into the shape of a fibrous looking anvil. The base is generally flattish and often has fractostratus Fs clouds below it from which precipitation falls. If cumulonimbus cloud is very extensive it may resemble nimbostratus Ns. Height of base is usually between metres 1, feet and 1, metres 5, feet.

A layer or patches of flattish, globular shaped, fairly small clouds, white or grey in colour, often arranged in lines, very similar in appearance to stratocumulus but at a greater height and the individual cloudlets look smaller. Base height above 2, metres 6, feet and not easy to estimate.

See also strato- cumulus and cirrocumulus. A thin and apparently formless veil or sheet of cloud, usually grey in colour. When present it often covers the whole sky, giving it a watery appearance; sun or moon shows through it with blurred outline.

Sometimes it is thick enough to obscure sun or moon, in which case it is dark in colour. See also cirrostratus. Eddy flux measurements over the ocean and related transfer coefficients.
