The Bergeron process
Freezing nuclei play a role
Atmospheric subduction process
Is not a process that has been proposed to explain the formation of precipitation
Means "rain cloud"
Term used to describe clouds of middle height
Dust, smoke, and salt particles
Are all examples of condensation nuclei
Is not associated with stable atmospheric conditions
Subsidence in the air column
Will not cause air to become unstable
Is associated with mountains
Is not a process that lifts air
Are weather-producing fronts that are parts of storm systems
Air temperatures rises and air molecules move faster
Occur when air is compressed
Refers to the temperature to which air would have to be cooled to reach saturation
Indicates how near the air is to saturation
The ratio of air's water-vapor content to its capacity to hold water vapor at that same temperature
Air that his reached its water-vapor capacity
The process of converting a liquid to a gas
City A in the Southern Hemisphere and City B in the Northern Hemisphere are located at the same latitude.
Therefore, City B has the larger annual temperature range
The temperature of a city located along a windward coast
Have cooler summer temperature than an inland location at the same latitude
Does not need to travel through a medium
Water vapor and carbon dioxide
Are the two most important heat-absorbing gases in the lower atmosphere
The average amount of the sun's energy that reaches the Earth's outer atmosphere and is reflected back into space
300,000 kilometers per second
The speed electromagnetic waves travel through space
The electromagnetic waves with the longest wavelengths
Differences in temperature
Causes the transfer of heat and/or energy from one object to another
When air transfers energy to a cooler object, what happens to the air temperature?
The latitude that you would expect the sun to be directly overhead at noon on April 21
When the summer solstice occurs in the Northern Hemisphere
Is the boundary between the troposphere and the stratosphere
The lowest layer of the atmosphere
Is the most abundant gas in the atmosphere
