Cloud Forms


    THE United States Weather Bureau at Washington has issued a publication 1 which would seem to be intended as a guide to cloud forms for meteorological observers. It consists of a short introduction, two diagrams of cloud height frequencies, a page devoted to definitions of cloud forms, taken from the International Cloud Atlas, and 32 photographs of different forms of cloud. The memoir gives in convenient form information which will be useful to meteorological observers, and if any criticism may be made, it is, that a few of the photographs are not quite typical and some are not clear.
