Transcript

  • 1. Josh Korpics
  • 2.  When air is compacted, or is allowed to grow When it grows, its cools; and when it compacts, it heats Every 1000 meters from the surface of the ground, the temperature is decreased by10 degrees Altitude goes up, and temperature goes down.
  • 3.  Mountains act like a shield to prevent air flow. This explains how the leeward side is cooler than the windward side Air moisture gets decreased as it reaches the leeward side making it dry
  • 4.  Hot air and cool air mix together causing a Front The cold air acts like a wall when warmer air is introduced
  • 5.  When both winds meet each other and rise into the atmosphere forming clouds This results in random thunderstorms in the afternoon
  • 6.  When warm pockets of air causes you to maybe feel warmer as you go through them Also clouds may form ending u in a thunderstorm O R
  • 7.  When less dense air rises to the point where it cant any higher, like a hot air balloon You can tell when a thunderstorm is coming if you see big high clouds in the atmosphere
  • 8.  When water vapor changes into liquid Examples are fog, dew, and clouds
  • 9.  Three basic clouds Cirrus, Cumulus, and Stratushttp://eo.ucar.edu/webweather/cloud3.html Cloud Types!
  • 10.  Three clouds make up the high cloud family the high clouds reach as low as 6000 meters The tree are, Cirrus, Cirrostratus, and Cirrocumulus http://eo.ucar.edu/webwe ather/cirrus.html
  • 11.  Clouds that appear from 2000 to 6000 meters They look like Cirrocumulus clouds, but they’re bigger because they form down to them http://eo.ucar.edu/web weather/alto.html
  • 12.  Clouds include the Stratus, Stratocumulus, and Nimbostratus These clouds form around mountains, fronts, or any winds Also can be known as fog or sometimes rain clouds http://eo.ucar.edu/webwe ather/stratus.html
  • 13.  When some clouds don’t fit into the high, middle, and low classes Some appear over lakes as an example http://blog.chicagoweat hercenter.com/2008/01/
  • 14.  Some fog is formed when hot air moves over a cold front Some forms when cold air leaves the water and causes it to evaporate http://articles.sfgate.com/ 2005-08- 19/news/17387430_1_fog -san-francisco-bay-area- summer
  • 15.  When a clouds reaches temperatures below -40c snow begins to fall to the ground
  • 16.  When clouds begin to warm and there is precipitation in them, it begins to rain
  • 17. Rain- A droplet of rain has a diameter of .5mmSnow- Snow fall starts to melt when the temperature reaches 4˚C And when the temperature is above - 5˚C, snow begins to clump together
  • 18.  Sleet is rain that gets really cold Hail is ice crystals that freeze and join on the way down Glaze is rain that freezes when it hits the ground http://www.theweatherpredi ction.com/severe/gianthail/
