cloud on title (cloud)

n. an actual or apparent outstanding claim on the title to real property. "Clouds" can include an old mortgage or deed of trust with no recording showing the secured debt was paid off, a failure to properly transfer all interests in the real property (such as mineral rights) to a former owner, a previous deed which was improperly written or signed, an unresolved legal debt or levy by a creditor or a taxing authority, or some other doubtful link in the chain of title. Often the "cloud" can be removed by a quiet title action, by finding a person to create or execute a document to prove a debt had been paid or corrected. Title companies will refuse to insure title to be transferred with a "cloud," or they will insure ownership except for ("insure around") the "cloud." (See: chain of title, quiet title action, mortgage, deed of trust, reconveyance, title, title report)

Cold front sequence: Cirrus Cirrocumulus Altocumulus Stratocumulus Cumulonimbus (summer) or nimbostratus (winter) Warm front sequence: Cirrus Cirrostartus Cirrocumulus Altocumulus Nimbostratus or cumulonimbus Stratus Now that both clouds and pressure systems are part of our vocabulary, we can get to more complete forecasts while examining a sky with different cloud types.
Middle clouds including the altocumulus, altostratus, and nimbostratus are considered as being the ice phase, and low clouds including the cumulus, stratocumulus, and stratus are in the liquid phase.
Turbulence in clouds is generated by the updraft and downdraft motions embedded within cumulonimbus and cumulus clouds, with lighter currents in stratocumulus and nimbostratus. If the clouds are generating showery precipitation, moderate or greater turbulence is a possibility, and airborne radar and/or spherics (Stormscope/Strikefinder) are your best tools for staying safe.
In this study, the ANN classifier divided cloud/ surface into seven categories: sea, stratocumulus and altocumulus, mixed cloud, altostratus and nimbostratus, cirrostratus, thick cirrus, and cumulonimbus using 2864 cloud samples manually collected by two experienced meteorologists in June, July, and August in 2007 from three FY-2C channels' (IR1,10.3-11.3 [micro]m; IR2,11.5-12.5 [micro]m; and WV 6.37.6 [micro]m) imagery.
