Observations of concentric ring clouds west of Australia
Some interesting cloud formations off the west coast of Western Australia on NOAA AVHRR and GMS-5 images are described. The cloud structures shown here are rare and may be related to the 'Morning Glory' phenomenon. This Letter provides an observational study of these clouds which we are calling 'Concentric Ring Clouds'. A plausible mechanism for their generation is presented in terms of anomalous latent heat release, thunderstorm downdraught and outflow causing wave propagation in a low-level wave guide.
