Clouds 101

Music credit: “Big Found” “Emerging Mystery” “Busy Day” from Universal Production Music.


Clouds can tell us a lot about what weather we might expect to see, but they’re actually quite mysterious. The question is: Because clouds are produced by the climate, how will a changing climate impact clouds? And, conversely, clouds have an impact on our climate, so how will changing clouds affect a changing climate? Welcome to Clouds 101.
