This table should not be seen as a strict or singular classification, but as an illustration of how various major cloud types are related to each other and defined through a full range of altitude levels from Earth's surface to the "edge of space Altocumulus stratiformis duplicatus at sunrise in the California Mojave Desert, USA higher layer orange to white; lower layer grey Another variety, duplicatus closely spaced layers of the same type, one above the other , is sometimes found with cirrus of both the fibratus and uncinus species, and with altocumulus and stratocumulus of the species stratiformis and lenticularis

Most of the sunlight that reaches the ground is absorbed, warming the surface, which emits radiation upward at longer, infrared, wavelengths.

Accessory clouds, by contrast, are generally detached from the main cloud
