Scientists have recently been meas uring the dimensions of the clouds, and have arrived at some rather startling conclusions. The dimensions of single clouds, as far as the area covered by their base is concerned, vary, as anyone can see, from the cloud the size of a man's hand to that which covers the entire visible heav ens; but the height of clouds can be observed more definitely and can be estimated with convincing accuracy, and It Is this height that largely de termines their contents and charac teristics. A great, cumulous thunderhead, towering up on the horizon ke a huge, flamboyant iceberg, is often higher than the highest Alps would be if they were piled on top of the Himalayas. It Is not unusual for , these clouds to measure five, six or even eight miles from their flat, dark i base, hovering a mile or two above the world, to their rounded, glisten ing summit, splendid in the sunlight. And in these eight miles the changes of temperature are as great as those over many thousand miles of the earth's surface. These clouds contain strata of tem perature, narrow belts of freezing cold alternating with large distances of rainy mist and frozen snow and r Ice particles. Hailstones, which are | formed from a snow partlc le that falls 1 from the upper strata and is frozen 1 hard in the freezing belt and coated [ with added ice in the wet belt, are often found with a series of layers In their formation, showing that they > have passed through this succession r of cloud strata more than once on their way from the upper air to the earth.
