  4. Littoral drift/ longshore drift
  5. Chemical Pollutants
  1. a compounds in the gaseous state, CO, SO2, NO, NO2, NO3; absorbed by water
  2. b narrow meandering currents of high speed winds near the tropopause blowing from a generaly westerly direction and often exceeding a speed of 250 mph
  3. c simply a cloud layer in contact with the land or sea surface or lying very close to the surface
  4. d an interesting phenomena is that water in clouds in such minute from remains in the liquid state at temperatures far below freezing
  5. e transport of sediment parallel with the shoreline by the combined action of beach drift and longshore current transport

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. a "rain" cloud or a stratiform clouds
  2. a strong seaward current that can build and be strong enough to sweep swimmers off their feet and carry them seaward
  3. traveling vortex-like cyclone involving interaction of cold and warm air masses along sharply defined fronts. The dominante type of weather disturbance common in the artic and mid-latitudes. Seen in Galvestion in late fall and winter. Steered by Jeet streams, and can be mild to severe
  4. rising tides set in motion in bays and estuaries currents of water
  5. a strong enough undercurrent/undertow that can sweep swimmers off their feet and carry them seaward

5 True/False questions

  1. Convection cellsare 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.


  2. A-?tundra; associated with E climate


  3. Saturation pointat any given temperature, the total quantity of water vapor that can by "held" by the air has a definite limit


  4. Groinan air mass that has a sharply defined distinct boundary between itself and neighboring ir masses; surface contact between two unlike air masses


  5. Barrier reefsland (forest or desert) or ocean which strongly affect the characteristics of air masses. Air masses move from one region to another following the patterns of barometric pressures.
