  1. 1. -Air temperatures changing with no change in energy http://www.summitcds.org/chem1vt/we btext/energetics/CE05.html
  2. 2.  When places on the Earth, such as mountains, block the air flow, which leads up to the air risinghttp://www.nc-climate.ncsu.edu/edu/k12/.LiftingMechanisms
  3. 3.  Process when cold air blocks out cold air to let warm air rise http://www.sleepingdogstudios.com/Net work/Earth%20Science/ES_18.2_files/fra me.htm#slide0014.htm
  4. 4.  When air is met by other air and is forced in an upward directionhttp://ww2010.atmos.uiuc.edu/(Gh)/guides/mtr/cld/dvlp/cnvrg.rxml
  5. 5. Unequal heating of the Earth’s surface Some parts of the Earth are warmer than others due to darkness of an object Some parts of the Earth are cooler than others due to light on an objecthttps://www.meted.ucar.edu/sign_in.php?go_back_to=http%253A%252F%252Fwww.meted.ucar.edu%252Fdot%252Fprint.ht
  6. 6.  Air that doesn’t move; remains in its original spot Unstable air often rises http://ocw.usu .edu/Forest__R ange__and_Wil dlife_Sciences/ Wildland_Fire_ Management_a nd_Planning/U nit_7__Atmosp heric_Stability_ and_Instability_ 1.html
  7. 7.  Air must be saturated for any type of condensation such as dew, fog, or clouds  Condensation happens above the ground  There are tiny particles on the surfaces for water-vapor condensationhttp://keep3.sjfc.edu/students/kes00898/e-port/condensation%20page%20for%20unit
  8. 8. http://www.prwatch.org/spin/2011/08/ 10943/study-about-clouds-effect-global- warming-debunked Cirrus clouds are white and thin clouds. There also delicate and wispy Cumulus clouds are rounded. They have a flat bass and appearance of rising domes or towers Stratus clouds are mainly sheets or layers which cover most of the sky. There are no specific individual clouds
  9. 9.  There are three types of high clouds which include cirrus, cirrostratus, and cirrocumulus  Cirrocumulus clouds are fluffy  Cirrostratus clouds are flat layershttp://scienceray.com/biology/weird-and-wonderful-of-nature-cloud-
  10. 10.  Altostratus clouds create a white to grayish sheet covering the sky with the sun or moon  There may be occasionally a light drizzle or light snowhttp://eo.ucar.edu/kids/sky/clouds2.htm
  11. 11.  Stratus clouds are fog like layers of clouds that usually cover most of the sky Stratocumulus clouds have a scalloped bottom that looks as long parallel rolls or broken round patches Nimbostratus clouds are rainy clouds http://www.wunderground.com/blog/Bl izzard92/comment.html?entrynum=32&th eprefset=BLOGCOMMENTS&theprefvalu
  12. 12.  Clouds that don’t fit into the category of high clouds, middle clouds, or low clouds http://www.free-online-private-pilot- ground-school.com/Aviation-Weather- Principles.html
  13. 13.  The result of radiation cooling, or the movement of air over a cold surface  When water vapor is added to the air and is saturated, fog can occur  Fog is a cloud with its base at or very close to the groundhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Marine_Fog_Pattern_1.jpg
  14. 14.  Water is super cooled when it is below -0 degrees celsius When air is saturated it is supersaturated to ice The Bergeron process relies on two physical processes which are super cooling and super saturation http://atm.ucdavis.edu/mmg/atm60_200 5/note/precipitation.htm
  15. 15.  Warm clouds form raindrops in the collision- coalescene process Salt can lower water vapor temperatures from the air at relative humidities under 100 percent http://www.rainmanweather.com/site/p roducts/RG-206-Brush-RG202-Rain-and- Snow-Gauge
  16. 16. http://p hysicswo rld.com/ cws/arti cle/news /42517 Drops of water that fall from a cloud and have a diameter of at least 0.5 mm. When the ground temperature is above four degrees celsius, snowflakes will melt and turn into rain before reaching the ground At low temperatures ice crystals will form http://www.rgbstock. com/photo/mfms7Zq /
  17. 17. Sleet is the falling of small particles of clear iceGlaze is just known as freezing rainHail is made in the cumulonimbus clouds http://www.kaiserroof.com/hail/ http://community.acstechnologies.com/2 011/01/through-rain-sleet-or-snow/
