Mammatus Clouds over Saskatchewan

Explanation: When do cloud bottoms appear like bubbles? Normally, cloud bottoms are flat. This is because moist warm air that rises and cools will condense into water droplets at a specific temperature, which usually corresponds to a very specific height. As water droplets grow, an opaque cloud forms. Under some conditions, however, cloud pockets can develop that contain large droplets of water or ice that fall into clear air as they evaporate. Such pockets may occur in turbulent air near a thunderstorm. Resulting mammatus clouds can appear especially dramatic if sunlit from the side. The mammatus clouds pictured here, lasting only a few minutes, were photographed over Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada, just after a storm in 2012.

说明: 何时底会长得像泡泡?正常的云底是平的。这是因为潮湿的暖空气上升,在某一特定温度,通常也在某一对应的特定高度,受冷而凝结成小滴。然后在小水滴变之后,就形成不透光的云。不过在某些情况下,云的某些区域会发展成含有大水滴或粒的云胞,向下沉降与蒸发。这种云胞可能出现在雷暴系统的湍流区附近,所形成的乳状云在阳光的侧照之下,看起来特别醒目。这幅影像呈现2012年一团风暴刚通过之后,出现在加拿大萨斯喀彻温省里贾纳市上空,持续只有短短数分钟的乳状云。
