6 Multiple choice questions

  1. water droplets formed by condensation of water vapor on a relatively cold surfaces like grass, cars, etc.
  2. a boundary that exists between air masses with different temperatures and/or water vapor concentrations.
  3. 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.
  4. the temperature below freezing to which air must be cooled to reach saturation.
  5. 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.
  6. a boundary in which a cold air mass is overtaking a warm air mass.

6 True/False questions

  1. Air Massice crystals formed by sublimation of water vapor on a relatively cold surface like grass, cars, etc.

          

  2. Steam Foga visible mass of water droplets or ice crystals that are suspended in an air layer that has contact with the ground.

          

  3. Saturationa general name for a ground level cloud that forms when cold air comes in contact with relatively warm water.

          

  4. Convectional Coolingwhen air reaches saturation because it has been heated and it rises because it's density has been reduced.

          

  5. Warm Fronta boundary in which a cold air mass is overtaking a warm air mass.

          

  6. Orographic Liftinga process by which air reaches saturation by being forced up and over mountains.
