- a heat measured by a thermometer-- heat you can feel
- b when tides begin to fall, set in and water flow is seaward
- c rainwater having an abnormally high content of the sulfate ion and showing a pH between 2 and 5 as a reasult of air pollution by combustion products of fuels having high sulfur, content
- d where the wind drives sand and dust particles against an exposed rock or soil surface causing it to be worn away by the impact of the particles
- e or globular clouds; globular masses representing bubble-like bodies of warmer air spontaneously rising because they are less dense than the surrounding air-- also called cumulus
5 Multiple choice questions
- when the concentration of particles and chemical pollutants are less dense but still obscuring visibility of distant objects
- several types; coastal blowout dunes, parabolic dunes on semiarid plains and parabolic dunes drawn out into hairpins. The horns of the dunes point upwind and there is no slip face, so no migration of the dunes
- combination of acid rain and fallout of acid particles from the atmosphere
- former abrasion platform elevated to become a step-like coastal platform.
5 True/False questions
Chinook winds → 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.
cyclone → center of low atmospheric pressure
Adiabatic lapse rate → down faulting of a coastal margin of a continent can allow the shoreline to come to rest against a fault scarp
Backwash → a return flow that pours down the beach after the force of a swash is spent on the beach. San and gravel is swept seaward and can be felt as a strong seaward current.
What is an important law in meteorology? → 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
