An indication of the equality of cloudiness.
Reduced vision due to reduced transparency of the cornea; also nephelopia.
Abstinence from alcoholic beverages.
In meteorology, an analysis of the types and amount of clouds and precipitation on a synoptic chart in which cloud systems are identified as entities in relation to the pressure pattern and fronts.
In meteorology, a line bounding a significant portion of a cloud system in nephanalysis.
1. A cloudy appearance of urine.
2. A white scar of the cornea.
An instrument for viewing the upper strata of clouds.
A cloud nymph.
Emitting clouds, especially of tobacco smoke.
A double silicate of aluminium and sodium, occurring chiefly in volcanic deposits in Italy. So named because its fragments are rendered cloudy by immersion in nitric.
The alteration of a quid, in order to determine the amount of material present in the liquid.B>nephelmite:
Anyone who is a specialist in subject of clouds.
A systematic practice of observing the clouds.
A photograph of a cloud.
1. A written description about clouds.
2. A device for taking photographs of clouds.
Related to clouds or cloudiness.
The scientific study of clouds.
Cloudy; turbid, as, nepheloid urine.
1. An instrument to register the comparative cloudiness of the sky.
2. A photometer designed to estimate the amount of particulate matter in a turbid medium, measuring light-scattering properties to make comparisons with a series of standard suspensions.
3. In optics, any of various instruments that measure the intensity of light scattered by particles suspended in liquid, in order to determine the amount of material present in the liquid.
The estimation of the concentration of particles in a suspension by means of a nephelometer.
Dim or cloudy vision from lessened transparency of the ocular media.
An intense interest in clouds.
A laboratory instrument used to condense or expand moist air in order to approximate the formation of clouds.
A cloudy envelope surrounding a planet or other heavenly body.

In meteorology, the study of clouds.
An excessive fear of clouds. People who experience this phobia will not look up in the sky at clouds. This fear may be related to other fears concerning weather; such as, impending rain, thunderstorms, or lightning. Some depressions are seasonally related, and for those whose depression occurs during the cloudier months, clouds can be particularly threatening.

That branch of meteorology dealing with clouds.
In geophysics, an instrument that measures the amount of cloudiness of a medium; used to study scattering properties.
A convex mirror having one central and five radial parts; used to estimate cloud coverage at any given time.
