6 Multiple choice questions
- ice crystals formed by sublimation of water vapor on a relatively cold surface like grass, cars, etc.
- a state in which the air is "holding" all of the water that it can take at a given temperature.
- a 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.
- a boundary that forms when a cold front overtakes a warm front.
- a 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.
- a temperature drop that accompanies a pressure reduction on an air parcel, as when air parcels rise within the atmosphere.
6 True/False questions
Warm Front → a boundary in which a warm air mass is over taking a cold air mass.
Front → a boundary that exists between air masses with different temperatures and/or water vapor concentrations.
Cold Front → a boundary in which a cold air mass is overtaking a warm air mass.
Advection Fog → a ground level cloud formed when a moist, warm, air mass moves over a cold surface like a snow pack, a lake, or an ocean.
Orographic Lifting → a process by which air reaches saturation by being forced up and over mountains.
Steam Fog → a visible mass of water droplets or ice crystals that are suspended in an air layer that has contact with the ground.
