- a visible mass of water droplets or ice crystals that are suspended in an air layer that has contact with the ground.
- a boundary in which a warm air mass is over taking a cold air mass.
- ice crystals formed by sublimation of water vapor on a relatively cold surface like grass, cars, etc.
- a ground level cloud formed when a moist, warm, air mass moves over a cold surface like a snow pack, a lake, or an ocean.
- 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.
6 True/False questions
Steam Fog → a visible mass of water droplets or ice crystals that are suspended in an air layer that has contact with the ground.
Radiation 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.
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.
Orographic Lifting → a process by which air reaches saturation by being forced up and over mountains.
Stationary Front → a boundary in which a warm air mass is over taking a cold air mass.
