Transcript of "3qrogers"

  1. 1. CloudFormationBy Quincy Rogers
  2. 2. http://www.waterencyclopedia.com/Ce-Cr/Climate-Moderator-Water-as-a.html Orogrophic Lifting • An easier way to explain this would be the windward and leeward side of mountain. One side gets all the precipitation, and the other side gets nothing.
  3. 3. Fronts• A boundary between colliding masses of warm and cold air.• Less dense air rises
  4. 4. Convergence • When air rises because the air under it flows togethertp://www.ec.gc.ca/ouragans-hurricanes/AB062B74-8C14-4A80-BC38-
  5. 5. Localized Lifting• When un-equal heating warms up one pocket of air more than the others , making that air less dense
  6. 6. Stableness• Air that sits still• Stable air stays in one place while unstable air rises and moves around
  7. 7. http://aumusiclibrary.files.wordpress.com/2011/02/rain.jpg Condensation • For condensation to happen, there needs to a surface • The air needs to be saturated • When this happens in he air we call clouds
  8. 8. http://images.usatoday.com/weather/photos/clouds/cirrus2.jpg Cloud types and Precipitation• Cirrus- high up, white, and are thin. Look like wispy feathery cloudy• Cumulus- big fluffy clouds that have a flat bottom• Stratus- cover much and often most of the sky. No distinctive individual clouds
  9. 9. Fog• A cloud that is so heavy it fell to the ground
  10. 10. Precipitation• For precipitation to form, the water vapor in the air must get bigger by one million times
  11. 11. http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/4/41/Bergeron_process.svg/220px-Bergeron_process.svg.png Bergeron Process • Theory that describes the precipitation of cold clouds • Water below 0C is said to be super cooled • Water in this stage will automatically freeze with contact
  12. 12. Collision Coalescence• When air is super saturated with ice• Theory that describes the formation of raindrops
  13. 13. High Clouds• Bases reside between 16000 and 45000 feet• Because of the altitude they are mainly composed of ice crystals• Clouds in the region would be cirrus, cirrocumulus, and cirrostratus
  14. 14. Middle Clouds• Bases found at 6,500 to 23,000 feet• Main clouds here are altostratus, alto nimbus, and nimbostratus clouds• Their height depends on the region they form
  15. 15. Low Clouds
  16. 16. Rain and Snow • Forms when water droplets in clouds size up one million times • Depending on the weather in the region, the water droplets may freeze into crystals and become snowhttp://zahiym5tlc.edublogs.org/files/2010/01/rain-and-snow1.jpg
