- a boundary in which a warm air mass is over taking a cold air mass.
- water droplets formed by condensation of water vapor on a relatively cold surfaces like grass, cars, etc.
- a process by which air reaches saturation by being forced up and over mountains.
- 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.
- a visible mass of water droplets or ice crystals that are suspended in an air layer that has contact with the ground.
- 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.
6 True/False Questions
Convectional Cooling → when air reaches saturation because it has been heated and it rises because it's density has been reduced.
Dew Point → the temperature below freezing to which air must be cooled to reach saturation.
Cloud → ice crystals formed by sublimation of water vapor on a relatively cold surface like grass, cars, etc.
Saturation → a state in which the air is "holding" all of the water that it can take at a given temperature.
Occluded Front → a boundary that forms when a cold front overtakes a warm front.
Steam Fog → a general name for a ground level cloud that forms when cold air comes in contact with relatively warm water.
