6 Multiple choice questions
- water droplets formed by condensation of water vapor on a relatively cold surfaces like grass, cars, etc.
- a boundary that exists between air masses with different temperatures and/or water vapor concentrations.
- 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.
- the temperature below freezing to which air must be cooled to reach saturation.
- 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.
- a boundary in which a cold air mass is overtaking a warm air mass.
6 True/False questions
Air Mass → ice crystals formed by sublimation of water vapor on a relatively cold surface like grass, cars, etc.
Steam Fog → a visible mass of water droplets or ice crystals that are suspended in an air layer that has contact with the ground.
Saturation → a general name for a ground level cloud that forms when cold air comes in contact with relatively warm water.
Convectional Cooling → when air reaches saturation because it has been heated and it rises because it's density has been reduced.
Warm Front → a boundary in which a cold air mass is overtaking a warm air mass.
Orographic Lifting → a process by which air reaches saturation by being forced up and over mountains.
