- a large volume of air with uniform temperature and water vapor concentrations.
- a visible mass of water droplets or ice crystals that are suspended in an air layer that has contact with the ground.
- 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 boundary in which a warm air mass is over taking a cold air mass.
- a process by which air reaches saturation by being forced up and over mountains.

6 True/False Questions
Steam Fog → a general name for a ground level cloud that forms when cold air comes in contact with relatively warm water.
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.
Frost → ice crystals formed by sublimation of water vapor on a relatively cold surface like grass, cars, etc.
Front → ice crystals formed by sublimation of water vapor on a relatively cold surface like grass, cars, etc.
Convectional Cooling → a temperature drop that accompanies a pressure reduction on an air parcel, as when air parcels rise within the atmosphere.
Cloud → a boundary that exists between air masses with different temperatures and/or water vapor concentrations.
