EVAPORATION AND CONDENSATION
Condensation takes place:
Fog and Mist
A combination of these four basic types can give rise to the following types of clouds: high clouds – cirrus, cirrostratus, cirrocumulus; middle clouds – altostratus and altocumulus; low clouds – stratocumulus and nimbostratus and clouds with extensive vertical development – cumulus and cumulonimbus
Types of Rainfall
On the basis of origin, rainfall may be classified into three main types – the convectional, orographic or relief and the cyclonic or frontal.
