5 Matching questions

  1. Jet Stream
  2. pressure gradient force
  3. air pressure
  4. Occluded Front
  5. aneroid barometer
  1. a Drives air from areas of higher barometric pressure to areas of lower barometric pressure, causing winds.
  2. b a front where a warm air mass is caught between two colder air masses and brings cool temperatures and large amounts of rain and snow
  3. c the weight of the air above an object
  4. d an instrument that measure air pressure, An instrument that measures changes in air pressure without using a liquid. Changes in the shape of an airtight metal box cause a needle on the barometer dial to move.
  5. e narrow belt of strong winds that blows near the top of the troposphere across the US

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. a line on a weather map that joins points having the same barometric pressure
  2. an instrument used to determine the direction that the wind is blowing
  3. an area in which the barometric pressure is greater than that of the surrounding air
  4. a boundary between two air masses of different density, moisture, or temperature
  5. a body of air that has about the same temperature and moisture throughout

5 True/False questions

  1. Convection Currentthe movement of a fluid, caused by differences in temperature, that transfers heat from one part of the fluid to another

          

  2. Cold Frontmoving weather front along which a warm air mass slides over a cold air mass, producing stratiform clouds and precipitation

          

  3. anemometeran instrument that measure air pressure, An instrument that measures changes in air pressure without using a liquid. Changes in the shape of an airtight metal box cause a needle on the barometer dial to move.

          

  4. lowan area in which the barometric pressure is lower than that of the surrounding air

          

  5. Frictionthe resistance encountered when one body is moved in contact with another. Slows down the speed of wind when it flows over land
