- a boundary in which a cold air mass is overtaking a warm air mass.
- the temperature above freezing to which air must be cooled to reach saturation.
- a general name for a ground level cloud that forms when cold air comes in contact with relatively warm water.
- a state in which the air is "holding" all of the water that it can take at a given temperature.
- ice crystals formed by sublimation of water vapor on a relatively cold surface like grass, cars, etc.
- a boundary that forms when a cold front overtakes a warm front.
6 True/False questions
Front → a boundary that exists between air masses with different temperatures and/or water vapor concentrations.
Cloud → 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 when a moist, warm, air mass moves over a cold surface like a snow pack, a lake, or an ocean.
Expansional Cooling → when air reaches saturation because it has been heated and it rises because it's density has been reduced.
Orographic Lifting → a process by which air reaches saturation by being forced up and over mountains.
Dew → a visible mass of water droplets or ice crystals that are suspended in an air layer that has contact with the ground.
