Looking for an identification guide to clouds?

The FSC Cloud Name Trail features the major forms of clouds seen in Europe.

Simple yes/no questions will quickly guide you to the colour photographs of different forms of cumulus, cumulonimbus, altocumulus, cirrus, stratocumulus and stratus.

Text on the reverse side summarises the major processes leading 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.

The Cloud Name Trail was produced in partnership with the Royal Meteorological Society.
