    • Adiabatic temperature changesand expansion and cooling The temperature changes that happens even heat is not added Subtracted are called adiabatic temperature changes. Picture is from (kidsgeo.com)
    • Orographic lifting The air occurs when elevated terrains mountains act as barriers to air flow Forcing air to ascend picture from ocw.usu.edu
    • Frontal wedging boundary between colliding masses Warm and cold air When warmer dense air rises (picture is from geo.huntercuny.edu)
    • Convergence lifting of air Its results from the lower atmosphere It flows together (picture is from islandnet.com)
    • Localized convective lifting occurs when unequal heating of earth surface warms a pocket of air It warms more than the surrounding air Lowering the air pockets density (picture is from meted.ucar.edu)
    • Density differences and stabilityand daily weather Air tends to remain in its original place When unstable air tends to rise Happens with all of height (picture is from astoria.com)
    • Condensation condensation occurs when the air is above the ground tiny bits of matter condensation nuclei (picture from kidsgeo.com)
    • Types of clouds cirrus clouds (high, white thin,) cumulus clouds ( flat base and rising towers ) stratus clouds ( cover most of sky ) (picture is from prwatch.org)
    • High clouds Low temputures high latitudes Flat layers (picture is from commons.wikimedia.org)
    • Middle clouds appear in the middle range larger denser (picture is from all star.fiu.edu
    • Low clouds low clouds are the clouds low in the air .
    • Fog Cooing and evaporation it’s a clouds Low to the ground When your in the car you can see this. In the morning .
    • Cold cloud precipitation formation of precipitation supercooled clouds freezing nuclei different saturation levels of ice and iquid water
    • Warm cloud preciptation warm clouds drop rain they join together with smaller droplets To form a raindrop
    • Rain and snow Rain means drops of water from clouds snow is made up of a six sided ice cyrstels they are heavy (picture is from blog.cannon.snow.com)
    • sleet, Glaze and hail sleet is small pieces of hard snow of ice hail is produced by cumunimbus clouds they fall veryy fast from the clouds
    • The end I had learned a lot about clouds and preciptation from doing this project .
