Undulatus asperatus is a new separate cloud classification currently on petition to be added to the official list of observable cloud types. If accepted as a distinct cloud type, it will be the first addition to the list of cloud types since cirrus intortus was added in 1951. It was proposed by the founder of The Cloud Appreciation Society. Recognition of the cloud classification is still pending.

The experience of these clouds is as if, it is said, one were below the Sea looking up at the surface of the water. Yet when they occur, there reportedly is little to no turbulence at the land surface. The clouds are most common in the Great Plains of the United States following thunderstorm activity in the earlier parts of the day.
