Multi-language "International Cloud Atlas"
John Chan Kai-wing, Stephen Lau Po-wing
On 9 April, five official languages of the United Nations (Arabic, Chinese, French, Russian and Spanish) were added to the “International Cloud Atlas” (ICA) website, the English version of which was developed by the Observatory on behalf of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO). The webpage systematically categorises clouds and atmospheric phenomena, and shows outstanding photos from all over the world. Notably, nearly 60 photos were taken by Hong Kong people. The multi-lingual website allows people from more regions to appreciate the nature of clouds and better understand atmospheric phenomena.
