- What is the first basic cause of Precipitation?
- a wall or embankment built at right angles to the shoreline; may be constructed of large rocks masses, concrete or wood pilings.
- b a cumuliform cloud that develop tall stalk-like shapes and penetrates high into the troposphere (thunderstorm clouds)
- c 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.
- d are more or less circular coral reefs enclosing a lagoon but without any land inside (just lagoon). Most are built on a foundation of volcanic rock- volcanoes rising from ocean floor.
- e the horizontal convergence of moist air toward a center or line of low barometric pressure. The convergence, accompanied by the rise of air and its cooling by the adiabatic process results in the formation of clouds and production of ppt.
5 Multiple Choice Questions
- when particles and chemical pollutants are present in considerable density over an urban area
- redced adiabatic lapse when condensation is taking place in the rising air. The rate is 2.5 degrees F per 1000 and the reduced rate is a result of the latent heat via condensation
- a foamy turbulent sheet of water ridges up the beach, after a breaker collapses.
- process of change of water vapor to either a liquid or a solid state (ex: rain or hail)
- deeply indented by steep-walled fiords, which are submerged glacial troughs (glacial valleys)
5 True/False Questions
climate → average weather over a given time
Littoral drift/ longshore drift → reef building corals create new land. There are 3 basic types, fringing, barrier, and Atolls
Barrier Island Coast → associated with recently emerged (new land) coastal plain. Offshore slope is very gentle and an island of sand is usually thrown up by a wave action some distance off shore. Behind lays a lagoon.
Squall lines → line of thunder clouds
Saturation point → results from the movement of warm moist air over a cold or snow-covered ground surface... as it loses heat to the ground, the air layer undergoes a drop of temperature below the dew point and condensation sets in.
