5 True/False questions
What are the 8 major climate subgroups? → A- Tropical Rainy Climate, B- Dry Climate, C- Mild Humid Climate (subtropical), D- Snowy Forest (Temperate) Climate, and E- Polar Climate
Mild Humid (subtropical) Climate- → "willie willie" "typhoon" mild to intense storm, common in the subtropics and tropics. Have a depression or easterly wave (thunderstorm) to a hurricane
Smog → simply a cloud layer in contact with the land or sea surface or lying very close to the surface
Star dune → type of longitudinal dune which is up to 400 yards high
Chinook winds → Results from turbulent mixing of lower and upper air in the lee range. The upper air, having little moisture to begin with is dried and heated by pressure and adiabatic warming as it quickly descends. Dry, warm winds often occur on the lee side of a mountain range. These winds cause extremely rapid evaporation of snow or soil moisture.. Santa Anna winds is an example.
