5 Multiple choice questions
- (B) evaporation exceeds ppt on the average thoughout the year, no water surplus, no permanent streams originate in this climate zone
- process in which water in a liquid or solid state passes into the vapor state. cools off
- rising air experiences a drop in temperature, even though no heat energy is lost to the outside
- when a body of warm moist air is forced to rise, this process can set off convection activity-- consists of strong updrafts taking place within a convection cell.
5 True/False questions
Beach → thich, wedge-shaped accumulation of sand, gravel or cobbles in a zone of breaking waves
Cumuliform clouds → or globular clouds; globular masses representing bubble-like bodies of warmer air spontaneously rising because they are less dense than the surrounding air-- also called cumulus
Sensible heat → when waves reach shallow water, the drag on bottom slows and steepens the wave until it leaps forward and collapse
Chemical Pollutants → compounds in the gaseous state, CO, SO2, NO, NO2, NO3; absorbed by water
Ebb current → a deeply embayed coast resulting from submergence of a landmass dissected by stream. This coast has many offshore islands.
