Why do clouds appear and disappear?

Clouds don’t float forever—if the surrounding air warms up, then the air is able to contain the cloud’s moisture as vapor, and the cloud will disappear. And sometimes, the cloud becomes so large and moist that the water droplets in the cloud begin sticking to each other, and grow bigger and bigger. Does the sun burn the clouds away?

If clouds disappear (fade away, which they generally do) Then it’s not a problem they’ll form again.

The hot air moves from the lower level to the upper level. The humidity present in the air increases
The air converts into a saturated form
The water vapor condenses many particles like salt, smoke, dust and other tiny particles present in the atmosphere. Lakhs of small water droplets in liquid form comes together to form a cloud.

You see, clouds appear substantial and opaque because the total number of droplets is immense. Sunlit clouds appear white because, overall, their droplets scatter the different wavelengths of visible light equally and absorb little light in the process.

One of the next things we wanted the answer to was, what happens to clouds in the atmosphere when it gets hot?

Usually clouds, after a period of time, just evaporate. Clouds are just large collections of condensed water droplets (or sometime ice crystals) helps aloft by the wind. When the temperature gets hot enough these water droplets/ ice crystals evaporate back into the air.

What are clouds and how do they form?

Waterspouts are in some ways like the tornadoes that form over land. But where tornadoes are associated with huge supercell thunderstorms, waterspouts can form during smaller storms or even just showers or the presence of the right kind of clouds.

What are clouds made of?

Clouds are just large collections of condensed water droplets (or sometime ice crystals) helps aloft by the wind. When the temperature gets hot enough these water droplets/ ice crystals evaporate back into the air.

The four main ways that clouds can form are: Surface Heating. Mountains and Terrain. Weather Fronts (cold or warm)What are the steps of a cloud formation? Clouds are formed when moist air rises upward. As the air rises, it becomes colder.

“We are thrilled that CRN recognizes x360Recover Direct-to-Cloud with Local Cache as one of the 10 Coolest Storage Products of 2021. The feature is a game-changer, speeding file and bare metal recovery, and slashing the time required for production failback operations.”.

Why do clouds tend to form well above the ground?

The updraft is what formed the cloud in the first place. Air rises from the ground in an updraft, and it cools as it rises. When it gets to a certain altitude its temperature is low enough that the water begins to condense out of it, forming the cloud. The particles fall against the updraft, so they don’t really fall.

High pressure systems have colder air sinking downwards towards the centre from above, and due to coriolis effects, this will rotate around the centre as is pushes the lower air outwards. Similarly for lo Clouds move because of wind patterns in the atmosphere.

Why does the sun shine through clouds and power lines?

The upper cloud that goes “behind” the sun is transparent, so the sun shines through it. In the above image, the power lines are not transparent. But because they are out of focus, that has the same effect (thin out of focus objects are effectively transparent blurs).

Nice explanation but not wholly convincing. Those clouds apparently behind the sun are quite dark, only slightly lighter than the band around the middle which is clearly in front of the sun. And there is a much lighter whisp of cloud at bottom right that is still visible in front of the sun.

Why do old negatives Look Like the Sun is behind clouds?

The old negatives represent clouds, and the antenna represents power lines, etc. Firstly with the “sun” off. Now with the “sun” on. The exact same exposure is used in both shots. The “clouds” (partially transparent film strips) look like they go behind the sun. Zoomed in, the cloud still goes “behind” the sun.

Why does the Sun look different in photos when it’s cloudy?

So if some thin clouds are in front of the camera then the pixels will still be saturated, and it will look just like the rest of the sun. Thicker clouds may obscure enough light from the sun and therefore be visible because they drop the pixel exposure to less than saturation.
