Kinda looks like the ocean over the ocean, doesn’t it!? Same physics, we’re told…

Cheryl Hammond looked out her window early this evening and spotted these waves – not waves upon the ocean, but waves high above the ocean.

Cheryl directed us to an explanation of such phenomenon which is called Kelvin-Helmholtz effect – the creation of waves when one layer of air at one temperature runs over the top of another layer of air at a different temperature or humidity. And where the layers rub against each other the effect is the same as when air blows across the ocean creating waves. Likely in this case warmer air picked up by a passing low pressure area being thrown atop the cooler marine layer below, causing that cool moist marine air to rise and cloud up – outlining the wave action while doing it.

The things you learn in hometown webpapers!

Thanks for the physics lesson Cheryl!
