5 True/False questions
Nimbostratus → a cumuliform cloud that develop tall stalk-like shapes and penetrates high into the troposphere (thunderstorm clouds)
New Land → barren expanses of silt and clay exposed at low tide but covered at high tide
Lagoon → are more or less circular coral reefs enclosing a lagoon but without any land inside (just lagoon). Most are built on a foundation of volcanic rock- volcanoes rising from ocean floor.
Adiabatic process → change of temperature within a gas because of compression or exmpansion, without gain or loss of heat form the outside. Therefore, expansion always results in cooling and compression results in warming
Delta → is a sediment deposit built by a stream entering a body of standing water and formed by the stream load
