Cloud patterns can represent the current energy state of the Earth. Although climate varies among places, there are patterns that are commons among them. Such common patterns are the “rapid changes” in the atmosphere. When Earth is excited by space weather, the climate changes abruptly. Dependent on how we define the initial state of observation, the end conditions will be something very noticeable.
Among all conditions, the most noticeable ones are the extreme ones – i.e. a clear sky and a very dark cloudy sky. To forecast natural disaster, we observe the transition between the two extreme conditions. During the transition of these extremes, there is also a very well known cloud pattern called “ripple clouds”. It is an excellent indicator that Earth is “ringing”, a response from external stimulation. Such external stimulation is mainly associated with either planetary alignments where the space environment is at the maximum resonance condition or solar activities where there is an abrupt change in the Sun’s resonance frequency. Therefore many researchers have considered this condition a precursor of earthquakes.
The other types of clouds that coexist with ripple clouds are light scattered clouds. It is a sign of strong solar flares. When strong ionizing radiation hits the Earth’s atmosphere, it helps accelerate cloud formations. This can be proved by an experiment as shown in the video below:
