Identifying cloud types
We all talk about the weather, make our daily plans based on forecasts and complain when bad weather spoils our plans. A person who professionally studies the atmosphere is a meteorologist. During this lesson we will learn how looks the work of meteorologists, what instruments they use and how they identify cloud types. “Understanding Clouds” is the theme of World Meteorological Day 2017 that we celebrated on 23 March. This topic highlights the enormous importance of clouds for weather, climate and water resources.
This lesson is intended for high school students (14-17) although it can be also interesting for younger students.
