Abstract : The report summarizes the results obtained within two years of photogrammetric cloud studies mainly devoted to cirrus bands. The report restricts mainly to the empirical facts with less emphasis on interpretation. In view of the variety of cloud forms and conditions under which they may form, the twelve cases reported here do not permit to draw conclusions of general validity beyond doubt; they may contribute, however, to the probability of assumptions and to the clarification of the problems and ways to solve them.
