Sir Basil John Mason, CB, FRS (born 18 August 1923) is an expert on cloud physics and former Director of the UK Meteorological Office. B. Mason (1957) "The Physics of Clouds" Oxford University Press. His work includes the Mason Equation, giving the growth or evaporation of small water droplets. He worked at Imperial College London, UK from 1948-1965, where he was appointed as a lecturer in meteorology in 1948, and in 1961 he was made professor of cloud physics. In the 1960s he helped to modernise the World Meteorological Organization.

As the author says in his Preface, the emphasis is upon the microphysical processes in the study of which he and his collaborators have taken a leading r81e in recent years. The large-scale physics of clouds is the ambitious title of a brief elementary introduction by F. H. Ludlam confined to types of clouds but serving as the vehicle for some excellent cloud photographs.

Ice crystals, growing on a fibre in a water-vapour diffusion cloud chamber under conditions in which the temperature and supersaturation of the environment can be varied independently, undergo the following transitions of habit in the temperature range 0 to -30 degrees C: plates- needles- hollow prismatic columns- plates- dendritic crystals.
