These clouds, comprised of ash and soot particles lifted skyward by the upwardly moving current of exhaust air above a fire, are both the result of a wildfire and a contributor to that fire’s behavior. Therefore, understanding these clouds is key to saving firefighter’s lives as well as the lives and property that may lie in the path of a capricious blaze.

These clouds are referred to as pyrocumulus clouds and and are generally formed as a result of a wildfire or volcanic activity. These clouds are formed when the air is intensely heated from the surface beneath.

Mumbai 2014 august seems to be similar to 2013 august - welcome break from torrential monsoon - faint sunshine... but sept/oct monsoon returned back in force.

This is an pyrocumulus cloud which is produced by the intense heating of the air from the surface. The intense heat induces convection which causes the air mass to rise to a point of stability, usually in the presence of moisture. Phenomena such as volcanic eruptions eruptions, forest fires, and occasionally industrial activities can form this type of cloud.
