Cloud Name Trail
Lee Swain & Malcolm Walker
This fold-out chart is a key to the major forms of cumulus, cirrus and stratus clouds seen in Europe.
Accompanying text summarises the major processes leading to cloud formation and precipitation: convection, frontal activity and orographic uplift. Further hints on the shape and appearance of each cloud are included in a table.
The Cloud Name Trail is produced in partnership with the Royal Meteorological Society.
