6 Multiple choice questions
- a process by which air reaches saturation by being forced up and over mountains.
- ice crystals formed by sublimation of water vapor on a relatively cold surface like grass, cars, etc.
- a nearly motionless boundary between a cold air mass and a warm air mass. Winds blow parallel to the front, but in opposite directions on the two sides of the front.
- water droplets formed by condensation of water vapor on a relatively cold surfaces like grass, cars, etc.
- a large volume of air with uniform temperature and water vapor concentrations.
- a general name for a ground level cloud that forms when cold air comes in contact with relatively warm water.
6 True/False questions
Advection Fog → a ground level cloud formed by nighttime radiational cooling of a humid air layer. Common on clear nights with light winds over damp areas such as rain soaked fields or wetlands.
Expansional Cooling → a temperature drop that accompanies a pressure reduction on an air parcel, as when air parcels rise within the atmosphere.
Occluded Front → a boundary in which a cold air mass is overtaking a warm air mass.
Frost Point → the temperature below freezing to which air must be cooled to reach saturation.
Convectional Cooling → a temperature drop that accompanies a pressure reduction on an air parcel, as when air parcels rise within the atmosphere.
Saturation → a state in which the air is "holding" all of the water that it can take at a given temperature.
