Availability: 11 in stock


This handy fold-out guide from the FSC will help you identify the major forms of clouds seen in the UK and Europe.

The name game guides you through cloud identification with simple yes/no answers, leading you to colour photographs of different forms of cumulus, cumulonimbus, altocumulus, cirrus, stratocumulus and stratus.

Featured on the reverse is information summarising the major processes that lead to cloud formation and precipitation convection, frontal activity and orographic uplift. It covers the typical sequence of cloud types associated with the passage of warm and cold fronts. Further hints on the shape and appearance of each cloud type are included in a table.
