NBC Today Show: Volutus, Cavum, Asperitas: See the 12 new clouds added to Cloud Atlas
In honour of World Meteorological Day on March 23, the World Meteorological Organisation has announced the addition of new species to the International Cloud Atlas. This Cloud Atlas is used as a reference document for meteorologists around the world and is an important guide for those working in aviation and at sea.
Dating back to the 19th Century, the Cloud Atlas was last revised in 1987. Today’s additions feature on the new, fully-digital edition and include the rare asperitas, which was added after campaigns by citizen scientists.
