  1. Convection Current
  2. Occluded Front
  3. pressure gradient force
  4. Wind Vain
  5. high
  1. a Drives air from areas of higher barometric pressure to areas of lower barometric pressure, causing winds.
  2. b an instrument used to determine the direction that the wind is blowing
  3. c the movement of a fluid, caused by differences in temperature, that transfers heat from one part of the fluid to another
  4. d an area in which the barometric pressure is greater than that of the surrounding air
  5. e 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

5 Multiple Choice Questions

  1. An instrument that measures changes in air pressure, consisting of a glass tube partially filled with mercury, with its open end resting in a dish of mercury. Air pressure pushing on the mercury in the dish forces the mercury in the tube to be higher.
  2. a body of air that has about the same temperature and moisture throughout
  3. The way Earth's rotation makes winds in the Northern Hemisphere curve to the right and winds in the Southern Hemisphere curve to the left.
  4. a line on a weather map that joins points having the same barometric pressure
  5. a boundary between two air masses of different density, moisture, or temperature

5 True/False Questions

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

          

  2. 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.

          

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

          

  5. HighArea of high pressure where wind will move away from, associated with dry and nice weather and air that is sinking
