Do you know your clouds? Here are 16 fascinating formations. Sponsored by Honda (compiled by Dave Mowitz).
Clouds can be divided into three main categories based upon the Latin root words, which refer to the process of formation and physical structure of the clouds. The first is Cirrus, which are clouds in the high altitude range and occur mostly in the form of filaments. The other two are Stratus, which are mostly sheet-like in structure, and Cumulus, which appear heaped, rolled, and/or rippled. Stratus and Cumulus occur in the high, middle, and low levels of the troposphere.
