Kelvin-Helmholtz Instabilities

Uploaded by: btangy

Wednesday December 8, 2004

Cambridge, MA (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: Kelvin-Helmholtz Instabilities to the S of Boston. Wavy like pattern in clouds is caused by a difference in winds between the cloud layer and the layer just above (called wind shear). The manifestation of this at the top of the altostratus deck is quite a beautiful and rare sight!
