    Members who are looking for the definitions of different cloud types, as well as a list of all the different classifications, should take a look at the World Meteorological Organisation’s International Cloud Atlas. This is the official reference work on cloud types. If you can’t find the answer to your cloud identification there, why not post a photograph of the cloud as a new topic in our Cloud Forum and some of our members might be able to help.

    International Cloud Atlas

    One useful page is their complete Cloud Classification Table.

      Welcome, Edisson. It is great to hear from South America and from someone who appreciates the International Cloud Atlas.

    Had no idea the Atlas existed until I joined CAS.  It is available on Amazon.

    Shiprock45, you have me wondering what it is that is available on Amazon. I have the old ICA in hard copy i.e.

    Volume I, Revised edition 1975

    Volume II 1987 (pictures)

    The new ICA as in the top of this thread is to my knowledge on-line only and is free.

    Hello All Cloud People,

    I just finished reading Cloudspotter ‘s Guide. Loved it and am so excited to become a member of the society.

    Best.
