Abstract

A time-lapse video showing Altocumulus lenticularis clouds revealing Mountain Wave activity. Notice how the positions of the clouds remain fixed relative to the landscape. This contrasts with the lower-level (Cumulus) clouds, seen at the beginning of the sequence, which move downstream with the wind. This video has been created from images taken by the NERC MST Radar Facility's Sky-Camera, which is located near Aberystwyth in West Wales. The images are freely available, under an Open (UK) Government License, from http://tinyurl.com/nerc-mstrf-sky-camera/ . For an explanation of the atmospheric phenomena that can be seen, download the resource available at http://cedadocs.ceda.ac.uk/1259/ .
