  1. 1. Clouds AndPrecipitation. By Josh Weaver.
  2. 2. Adiabatic Temperature Changes and Expansion and Cooling.• This is mostly when the net heat transfers to or from the working fluid and that is zero.• Also Adiabatic refers to any process that occurs without heat transfer.• This is also a concept used in many areas of physics and engineering.
  3. 3. Orgraphic Lifting.• Orgraohic Lifting can also be known as upslope flow• When Orgraphic Lifting occurs the land forces the air to move to a higher elevation• Forcing the air to send or move upward.
  4. 4. Frontal Wedging• A front is the boundary between colliding masses of warm and cold air.• Since warm air is less dense it is wedged upwards .• This only happens because of a front that’s usually raining .
  5. 5. Localized Convective Lifting• Localized Convective Lifting happens when unequal heating of Earth’s ground warms a pocket of air more than the other air, lowering the air pocket’s density.• Also there is lot’s of different kinds of Connectives .
  6. 6. Stability(Density Differences & Stability and Daily Weather)• The most stable conditions go down when air temperature actually gets higher with height, The name for this is temperature inversion.• The unending circulation of the earth’s water supply is called the hydrologic cycle.
  7. 7. Condensation• Condensation is the process by which water vapor in the air changed into liquid water• Also Condensation is mostly the reasons why a lot of things happen, Like when you glasses fog up or your cup of water starts to sweat.•
  8. 8. Types of Clouds• Cirrus clouds are high, they are also white and thin.• There can be lots of different kinds of clouds such as Low clouds stratus, Middle clouds altostratus and High clouds.
  9. 9. High Clouds• High Clouds are called Cirrus Clouds.• Also high clouds are vary thin and wispy .• The high clouds usually move across the sky from west to east.
  10. 10. Middle Clouds• Middle clouds are called altostratus clouds.• The middle clouds are made from water droplets• Also the middle clouds are usually gray.•
  11. 11. Low clouds• Low clouds are called stratus clouds.• Low clouds are usually gray looking• Also low clouds usually form with warm fronts.
  12. 12. Clouds of Vertical Development• Clouds are usually classified into a system that uses Latin words to tell the looks of different clouds.• They have lots of different words for clouds but they usually gave meaning to them.
  13. 13. Fog (by cooling and by evaporation)• Fog is pretty much the same thing as a cloud.• But the only difference is that Fog have a base that stays vary close to the ground.• Fog also deals with a lot of precipitation.
  14. 14. Cold Cloud Precipitation (Bergeron Process)• This process relates to the forming of precipitation.• Also the Bergeron Process is in order for water droplets to work
  15. 15. Warm Cloud Precipitation(collision- coalescence process)• The main thing that has to do with all the clouds is precipitation.• Also the collision-coalescence all about raindrop formation in warm clouds.
  16. 16. Rain and Snow• Rain and snow are the same thing as precipitation.• There are lots of different types of precipitation and rain and snow are just a couple.
  17. 17. Sleet, Glaze and Hail• Sleet, Glaze and Hail are mostly freezing rain.• Most of Sleet and Hail happens when precipitation falls from the sky or clouds. In liquid raindrops and as it gets lower it freezes creating Hail or Sleet what ever you want to call it.
