I would love a copy of this PowerPoint! It will really help my 5th graders!

Hi Garrett, Thank you for your interest in my ppt. i would suggest that you use this ppt from this website itself. Just view the ppt till the last slide and don't close the browser. Now even if you detach the internet cable, you can still view all the slides, rewind or forward and show it to your students through projector and with full screen mode. I hope this solves your purpose.

its a kool presentation but the lsat portion needs some further explanation

By: arvindtirkey (50 month(s) ago)

Hi Aamir, Thank you for your invaluable suggestion. I appreciate it. But the thing is I made this ppt just to be more of a visual presentation for school students who doesn't know much about the formation and the shape/size/patterns of the various types of clouds. As this ppt doesn't cater to the University students where cloud studies are more indepth and intense, I made this ppt for school students where just a short explanation with definition and more visual presentation is needed. Looking forward for more comments and suggestions. Thanks again.

CLOUDS : 

CLOUDS TYPES OF CLOUDS Prepared by: ARVIND TIRKEY Prepared by: ARVIND TIRKEY 1

CLOUDS IN THE AIR : 

CLOUDS IN THE AIR When a parcel of air carrying water vapour rises, it cools. When the air cools to saturation point, it condenses into tiny water droplets. As more and more water vapour condenses to water droplets, these water droplets merge to form clouds. The bottom of a cloud is clearly defined and it marks the level at which condensation begins. Prepared by: ARVIND TIRKEY 2

BASIC TYPES OF CLOUDS : 

BASIC TYPES OF CLOUDS Cirrus. Cumulus. Stratus. Cumulonimbus.

CIRRUS CLOUDS : 

CIRRUS CLOUDS Cirrus – Thin and Wispy. ‘High Clouds’ formed at high altitude above 6000 metres (20,000 ft.). Generally mean fair to pleasant weather. Some other types of Cirrus clouds: Cirrostratus clouds – Thin, sheet like high clouds covering the whole sky. Very thin that the sun and moon can be seen through them. Cirrocumulus clouds – small, rounded white puffs. Small ripples resembles the scales of a fish. Also known as ‘Mackerel Sky’. Prepared by: ARVIND TIRKEY 4

CUMULUS CLOUDS : 

CUMULUS CLOUDS Cumulus – Round and Woolly, sometimes look like pieces of floating cotton. Develop at low or middle altitudes. Base of each cloud is often flat and top has rounded towers. Resembles head of a cauliflower. Prepared by: ARVIND TIRKEY 8

STRATUS CLOUDS : 

STRATUS CLOUDS Stratus – Flattish low clouds. Layered. Looks like a low gray blanket. Flat, hazy, featureless clouds of low altitude varying in color from dark gray to nearly white. Stratus clouds bring rain or snow. Another type of Stratus clouds: Nimbostratus clouds – Dark gray, ‘wet’ looking cloudy later associated with continuous rainfall or snow. Light to moderate precipitation. Prepared by: ARVIND TIRKEY 10
