A cloud is a visible aggregate of tiny water droplets and/or ice crystals suspended in the atmosphere and can exist in a variety of shapes and sizes. Some clouds are accompanied by precipitation; rain, snow, hail, sleet, even freezing rain. The purpose of this module is to introduce a number of cloud classifications, different types of precipitation, and the mechanisms responsible for producing them. The Clouds and Precipitation module has been organized into the following sections:

Sections
Last Update: 07/21/97
Development
The importance of rising motion and the mechanisms responsible for lifting the air.

Cloud Types
High, middle and low-level clouds, vertically developed clouds, plus some less common cloud types.

Precipitation
Rain, snow, hail, sleet and freezing rain.

Acknowledgments
Those who contributed to the development of this module.

The navigation menu (left) for this module is called "Clouds, Precipitation" and the menu items are arranged in a recommended sequence, beginning with this introduction. In addition, this entire web server is accessible in both "graphics" and "text"-based modes, a feature controlled from the blue "User Interface" menu (located beneath the black navigation menus). More information about the user interface options, the navigation system, or WW2010 in general is accessible from About This Server.
