Lenticular clouds appear in Antarctica. Understand who they are and in what situations they are | environment

The funnel-like clouds have attracted the attention of researchers from the Argentinian Arctic base of Esperanza in Antarctica. The images were published this Tuesday (29) by the Argentine National Meteorological System.

Clouds generally consist of water droplets in their liquid state and ice suspended in the atmosphere after condensing.

In the case of drawings recorded in the images, they are called lenses. Associated with stable atmospheric flows, they form and shift from the same point of origin, which are responsible for the funnel-like appearance (in some cases, the shapes Overlapping circles, evoking even the shape of flying saucers).

In general, the phenomenon occurs at an altitude of 6-12 thousand meters. Common in areas of mountain ranges or mountain ranges, lenticular clouds are associated with encountering strong winds at high altitudes. In these cases, when the air encounters an obstacle, in this case a mountain range or mountain range, it ascends that geologic formation and condenses – creating clouds.

See below for more pictures of lenticular clouds. The phenomenon was recorded on Monday (27), but was not released until Wednesday (29).
