- Chinook winds
- Dry adiabatic lapse rate
- Fault coast
- What are the environmental effects of acid rain/deposition on natural systems?
- E- ?
- a Results from turbulent mixing of lower and upper air in the lee range. The upper air, having little moisture to begin with is dried and heated by pressure and adiabatic warming as it quickly descends. Dry, warm winds often occur on the lee side of a mountain range. These winds cause extremely rapid evaporation of snow or soil moisture.. Santa Anna winds is an example.
- b down faulting of a coastal margin of a continent can allow the shoreline to come to rest against a fault scarp
- c Polar Climate
- d acidification of lakes and streams; excessive leaching of nutrients from the soil; various metabolic disturbances to organisms; and upsetting the balances of predators to prey ratios in aquatic systems.
- e rate of the drop of temperature is 5.5 degress F per 1000 ft. The dry rate applies only when there is no condensation taking place.
5 Multiple Choice Questions
- a belt of dry climate, exists on the lee side of many mountain ranges. Several of the great deserts of the world are of this type.
- (B) evaporation exceeds ppt on the average thoughout the year, no water surplus, no permanent streams originate in this climate zone
- a dense mass of suspended water or ice particles ranging in diameter from 20-50 microns (micron= one one-millionth of meter)
- zone in which coastal processes operate or have a strong influence. This includes the shallow water zone as well as beaches, cliffs shaped by waves and coastal dunes.
- or layered/blanket clouds; cover large areas. represent air layers being forced to rise gradually over stable underlying air layers of greater density; also called stratus or nimbostratus
5 True/False Questions
W- → frost; assocated with E Climate
Foredunes → when waves reach shallow water, the drag on bottom slows and steepens the wave until it leaps forward and collapse
climate → average weather over a given time
Water spouts → tornados over the water, not usually as stong as the lang version
Marine Scarp → the waves from erosion form a steep bank, the waves then retrear steadily under the erosion of the storm waves
