About this book

This is a beautifully illustrated, but rugged and durable, pocket reference guide to clouds and cloud formations, helping you to identify every cloud type and understand its implications for the weather. "Met Office Pocket Cloud Book" follows a simple, easy to understand progression from low clouds to high stratus clouds, as well as covering unusual cloud phenomena, making it the ideal instant reference guide for cloudspotters - whether you are at home, in your garden or exploring the great outdoors. It features a detailed introduction on the history of cloud classification and introduces the three principle cloud forms, with clear explanations of the atmospheric processes that create them. Packed with stunning images from the Met Office's own photography archive, this is a visual feast and a clear yet fascinating exploration of the familiar world of cloud spotting.
