6 Multiple choice questions

  1. the temperature below freezing to which air must be cooled to reach saturation.
  2. a boundary that forms when a cold front overtakes a warm front.
  3. when air reaches saturation because it has been heated and it rises because it's density has been reduced.
  4. a general name for a ground level cloud that forms when cold air comes in contact with relatively warm water.
  5. ice crystals formed by sublimation of water vapor on a relatively cold surface like grass, cars, etc.
  6. a large volume of air with uniform temperature and water vapor concentrations.

6 True/False questions

  1. Cold Fronta boundary in which a cold air mass is overtaking a warm air mass.

          

  2. Saturationa general name for a ground level cloud that forms when cold air comes in contact with relatively warm water.

          

  3. Stationary Fronta nearly motionless boundary between a cold air mass and a warm air mass. Winds blow parallel to the front, but in opposite directions on the two sides of the front.

          

  4. Radiation Foga ground level cloud formed by nighttime radiational cooling of a humid air layer. Common on clear nights with light winds over damp areas such as rain soaked fields or wetlands.

          

  5. Fronta boundary that exists between air masses with different temperatures and/or water vapor concentrations.

          

  6. Orographic Liftinga process by which air reaches saturation by being forced up and over mountains.
