The classification of clouds into types was first proposed by Luke Howard in and we largely use the same system today. This splits clouds into three main types - stratus, cumulus and cirrus. Clouds are continually changing and appear in an infinite variety of forms. The classification of clouds is based on a book written by Luke Howard, a. The modern classification scheme used by the UK Met Office, with similar schemes used elsewhere, classifies clouds according to the altitude of cloud base, there being three altitude classes: low; mid level and high. Within each altitude class additional classifications are defined based on four basic types and combinations thereof. International Cloud Atlas (also Cloud Atlas) is a cloud atlas that was first published in and has remained in print since then. Its initial purposes included aiding the training of meteorologists and promoting more consistent use of vocabulary describing clouds, which were both important for early weather first edition featured color plates of color photographs, then still.

Handbook of Classification I. ORGANIZATION OF INFORMATION A. Bases of Classification A variety of rationales have been developed over the years to subdivide our classification files into searchable units. Collections of art based on each of the following rationales can be found in the U.S. Patent Classification sys tem as it exists today. Cloud Classification and Characteristics Clouds are classified according to their height above and appearance (texture) from the ground.. The following cloud roots and translations summarize the components of this classification system. 1) Cirro-: curl of hair, high.3) Strato-: layer. 5) Cumulo-: heap. 2) Alto-: mid. 4) Nimbo-: rain, precipitation. Clouds may be classified by form and by height. Luke Howard ( - ), a British pharmacist was the first to describe cloud forms using Latin terms such as cirrus, cumulus or division of clouds into ten basic cloud forms, or cloud genera is based on his publications. Cloud genera are further subdivided into cloud species (desribing shape or structure) and cloud variety. Ivan Ray Tannehill (Ma – May 2, ) was a commissioned US Army Lieutenant at Fort Story, Virginia and soon after World War I, became a forecaster with the United States Weather Bureau and a prolific writer, focusing on text on hurricanes remained the defining work on the topic from the late s into the early s.
