Title: Asperitas Atop a Cold Pool Concept: Breaking waves on an inversion surface marking the top of a thunderstorm outflow, or cold pool. Detail: The Cloud Appreciation Society successfully petitioned the World Meteorological Society to recognize a new variety of stratiform clouds - asperitas (aka asperatus). Meaning "roughened", the clouds resemble the surface of sea, and indeed mark the propagation of internal gravity waves within the inversion in which the cloud occurs. Video Credit: WeatherVideoHD.TV
