2012 Gallery - Clouds 1
For their second assignment, students were asked to photograph clouds, which represent a fabulous form of flow visualizaiton, available to everyone. The students also were asked to comment on the stability of the atmosphere based on skew-T plots, and on the atmospheric physics demonstrated in their images. Images are arranged by date.
