5 True/False questions
Thermometer → a gauge for recording the speed and direction of wind
Maritime Polar → Cold and humid air mass. forms over icy cold North Pacific and Atlantic oceans. brings fog, rain, and cool temperatures to the West coast
Trade Winds → the horizontal movement of air from an area of high pressure to an area of lower pressure
Low Air Pressure → contains cool, dense air that descends toward the earth's surface and becomes warmer
Global Warming → an increase in the average temperature of the earth's atmosphere (especially a sustained increase that causes climatic changes)
