Name the cloud family for each of the following:

  1. (a) nimbostratus
  2. (b) cirrostratus
  3. (c) altostratus
  4. (d) stratus
  5. (e) cumulonimbus

(a)

To determine
The cloud family of nimbostratus.

Explanation of Solution

Clouds are classified into four families according to their height. The four cloud families are as follows,

(1)High clouds

(2)Middle clouds

(3)Low clouds

(4)Clouds of vertical development

Low clouds- Low clouds extend from ground level to 1.8 km . They are composed of liquid water droplets generally

(b)

To determine
The cloud family of cirrostratus.

(c)

To determine
The cloud family of altostratus.

(d)

To determine
The cloud family of stratus.

(e)

To determine
The cloud family of cumulonimbus.
