|Mature||The middle stage of storm evolution is called what?|
|Alto||The cloud term that means mid-level.|
|mph, knots, m/s (you were correct if you said any two)||Name two units wind speed is measured in|
|Cumulus (or more exactly, cumulonimbus! Cumulus is the only one of the three cloud types that has large rising vertically)||A thunderstorm is mainly made up of which type of cloud?|
|Dew Point Temperature (absolute humidity)||Degrees Celsius can be the units for temperature and what else?|
|Downdraft (because the cold air sinks)||When evaporation increases and cold air builds up in a thunderstorm, a what forms?|
|Pressure||Pascal is a unit that measures what?|
|Cumulus (note the bubbly nature at the top)|| |
What type of cloud is shown?
What instrument is shown?
|Rising air (which is unstable and wants to continue rising) and moisture||What are the two ingredients needed for clouds and precipitation to form?|
|It cools (The water must take more energy to become a gas, so it steals it from the air)||When water goes from liquid to a gas, what happens to the temperature of the air around it?|
|Cirrostratus (cirrus wouldn't be a bad answer, because there are a lot of whispy clouds... but because there are so many, it is a full flat layer. You don't have to be perfect at naming cloud combo names, but need to understand cirrus, stratus, and cumulus very well)|| |
What is full name of the cloud shown (this is looking mostly straight up)?
