In this activity, students characterize some global patterns of deep, cold-topped clouds visible on global infrared satellite images. They will apply these characterizations to answer questions about local and global patterns of precipitation. The questions concern what clouds are and how they form, atmospheric cooling, rising air, precipitation, and the use of remote satellite imagery to see precipitation-producing ... Full description.

This table provides a quick reference to cloud types. Clouds are divided into groups mainly based on the height of the cloud's base above the Earth's surface. The table further divides the types according to group, atmospheric layer, and base height. Links to additional information are embedded in the text, and users can select beginner, intermediate, or advanced levels of difficulty. A Spanish translation ... Full description.
