- Occluded front
- What are the two classes of atmospheric pollutants?
- Adiabatic lapse rate
- Specific Humidity
- Cyclonic storms
- a denotes actual quantity of moisture present; defined as the mass of water vapor contained in a given mass. Measured in terms of grams of water vapor/kilograms.
- b within a rising body of air, the rate of the drop of temperature; has two types
- c intense weather disturbance within a moving cyclon generating strong winds, cloudiness and ppt
- d weather front along which a moving cold front has overtaken a warm front, forcing the warm air mass aloft
- e particular matter and chemical pollutants
5 Multiple choice questions
- an ocean current caused by approach of waves to a coast at an angle. It flows parallel to and near the shore.
- 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.
- lies between two large anticyclones (high pressure systems) one of cold dry polar air and the other of warm moist maritime air mass. Air is converging from opposite directions on both sides of the front.. with the formation of the occluded fronts
- A- Tropical Rainy Climate, B- Dry Climate, C- Mild Humid Climate (subtropical), D- Snowy Forest (Temperate) Climate, and E- Polar Climate
- an intense, local convection storm associated with cumulonimbus cloud and yielding heavy ppt, along with lightning, thunder and someimtes the fall of hail or snow
5 True/False questions
Saturation point → formed at night when temperature of the stagnant basal air falls below the dew point. Associated with a low-level temperature inversion (colder air closer to ground, wamer air above).
Water spouts → tornados over the water, not usually as stong as the lang version
How is the relative humidity effected? → denotes actual quantity of moisture present; defined as the mass of water vapor contained in a given mass. Measured in terms of grams of water vapor/kilograms.
Particular matter → solid and liquid particles capable of residing for long periods in the atmosphere (dust and smoke); form the nuclei
Volcano Coast → down faulting of a coastal margin of a continent can allow the shoreline to come to rest against a fault scarp
