5 Multiple choice questions

  1. a cumuliform cloud that develop tall stalk-like shapes and penetrates high into the troposphere (thunderstorm clouds)
  2. formed at night when temperature of the stagnant basal air falls below the dew point. Associated with a low-level temperature inversion (colder air closer to ground, wamer air above).
  3. the waves from erosion form a steep bank, the waves then retrear steadily under the erosion of the storm waves
  4. loose particles lying on the ground surface may be lifted into the air or rolled or bounced along the ground by the wind
