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 .
