Waterspout formation. The whirlwind forms at left and extends to reach the sea at centre. This agitates the surface of the water, causing spray. At right the spray has become a vortex and is forming a continuous column with the cloud. Artwork from 'A Treatise on Meteorology: With a Collection of Meteorological Tables' (1868) by the American mathematician Elias Loomis (1811-1889).
