This particular time-lapse of undulatus asperatus clouds was created by animating still frames of a video taken by storm chaser Alex Schueth, who recorded the clouds over Lincoln, Nebraska, on July 7, 2014.
This animation of undulatus asperatus was uploaded to Imgur and is a gif of the video taken by Alex Schueth.
Undulatus asperatus, which means “agitated waves,” was originally submitted to the WMO in 2009 by the Cloud Appreciation Society. The Cloud Appreciation Society petitioned the WMO, asking for a new classification for the cloud since “photographs of this cloud formation had been sent in by Society members over the years, and we’d never known quite how to classify them since we felt that they didn’t easily fit into the existing cloud terms.
The WMO considered the request and has yet to confirm the official classification of undulatus asperatus or determine whether the item should enter the International Cloud Atlas.
Regardless of official cloud status or not, undulatus asperatus sitings are strikingly visual reminders that the atmosphere is an ocean of gas, complete with cloud waves crashing high above. They occur when enough atmospheric instability, or rising air, is available to create widespread cloud cover, as well as wind shear and turbulence, which creates the wavy, rough sea-like visual effecthttp://www.weather.com/news/science/undulatus-asperatus-clouds-20140925
Images of rainfall totals from mid-state Texas this past weekend. So beautiful to see San Angelo with the center of the upper rain totals. Show our gifts to the planet DO WORK. Notice where they were out cloud seeding where the big Z in the image is. Big Z but hardly any rain, shows seeding is not the real key to solution of drought mediation, but a reworking of all energy factors involved! Continue reading →
Evaporation cooling occurs when precipitation falls through a dry layer of air. Since evaporation is a cooling process, the temperature of the dry layer falls a few degrees. This is especially common during late-winter storms when the surface temperature Continue reading →
Upon reading the following news, it is what i had spoken of before but without the tech science words they use to describe certain molecules and reactions. It is all about increasing the reaction for the atmosphere to produce lightning which produces ozone. ozone is the oxidizer for all gases and element molecules back into their stable original state! All free part of the Earths natural balance system. Continue reading →
When it rains it is such a beautiful event! The whole earth rejoices as it quenches the thirst of all living beings and animals. The energy from sounds alone with an approaching thunderstorm produces deep restful sleep.
Geoengineering research began as a war tactic in the 1940s for the US and the Soviet Union during the Cold War. During the Vietnam War, the US used geoengineering to flood certain areas. Then in 1976, 85 countries signed the U.N. Convention on the Prohibition of Military of Any Other Hostile Use of Environmental Modification Techniques. Continue reading →
