The formation of clouds is mainly related to the water vapor in the atmosphere, which is formed by small water droplets or small ice crystals liquefied by water vapor, which are mixed to form a visible polymer floating in the air.
Clouds are one of our most common natural phenomena, clear skies, blue skies and white clouds. Is the word we most describe. So do you know how clouds form?
Generally speaking, there are three basic types of clouds: a large cumulus cloud, a large stratiform cloud, and a fibrous cirrus cloud.
Cumulus clouds can be subdivided into three categories: light cumulus, dense cumulus and fragmented cumulus. Light cumulus is a cumulus formed when the air convection movement is not very strong, and its vertical velocity generally does not exceed 5 m/s. Its shape is similar to a small earth bag, and the vertical thickness of the cloud is less than the horizontal width. It is white in the sun, with light shadows in the middle of thick clouds, and is common in sunny days.
Dense cumulus clouds, or deep cumulus clouds, can also be called“Tower Cumulus”. It occurs at low or medium altitudes and is an intermediate stage between cumulus and cumulonimbus clouds. Its shape is similar to that of cauliflower. The bottom of the cloud is flat and dark, and the top is overlapping in an arc. The color is bright white on the edge and dark in the middle, which has a s
Cumulus clouds, namely the edge breakage and shape changes more quickly cumulus chunks. If the convection is enhanced, Cumulus fragmentosus can develop in Cumulus pallidus, if the convection enhancement is not obvious, it will last longer, and if the convection is weakened, the C. crumus disappears.
In addition, we can identify the weather according to the various forms of the cloud. Such as: “cotton clouds, rain is coming.” That is, there will be thunderstorms, cotton clouds refer to flaky high cumulus clouds.
