Fractal – StormLapse by Chad Cowan

Fractal – StormLapse by Chad Cowan

We’ve always found that one of the best ways to understand the behaviour of storm systems is to watch how they develop in time-lapse. And we were blown away by how well the workings of the atmosphere are revealed in this fantastic video by the award-winning, storm-chasing filmmaker Chad Cowan. Thanks to Judi Laing for letting us know about it.

    The best storm clouds music video I’ve seen in a long while. Thanks.

    Absolutely agree with Elonranger. Great to be able to pause, study and then move on. Anything on the more benign Cirrus/contrail development?

    Truly atmospheric. The time-lapse treatment definitely aids the understanding of cloud development.

    Brings back wonderful memories of my time in the British Met Office back in the 1950 – 60. I thought I had seen it all but this is marvellous.
