5 True/False questions
Lead → A highly toxic, radioactive, colorless gas that seeps up from the ground in areas with certin types of bedrock and can build up inside basements and homes with poor air circulation
convective circulation → A circular current driven by temperature differences, in the air warm air rises into regiona of lower atmospheric pressure, where it expands and cools and then descends and becomes denser.
Chlorofluorcarbons (CFC's) → One of the group of human made organic compunds derived from simple hydrocarbons, in which hydrogen atoms are replayed by chlorine, bromine, or flourine. deplete the ozone layer
thermal inversion → a departure from the normal temperature distribution in the atmosphere, in which a pocket of relavitevly cold air occurs near the ground, with warmer air above it.
Climate → The pattern of atmospheric conditions found accross large geoographic regions over long periods of time
