  • 1. Chapter 10, Lesson 4 Water Vapor and Humidity water vapor humidity relative humidity transpiration cloud formation thermal convection meteorologist
  • 2. water vapor - water in its gas form is water vapor. If you can see it, it’s not really water vapor!
  • 3. humidity – the level of moisture in the air; the amount of water vapor in the air
  • 4. relative humidity – is when you compare how much water vapor is in the air to how much it COULD hold
  • 5. dew point – point when the air is completely saturated with moisture and can hold no more.
  • 6. transpiration –watery vapor passed through a membrane or pores in a plant
  • 7. transpiration –watery vapor passed through a membrane or pores in a plant
  • 8. cloud formation – the way clouds form
  • 9. cloud formation – the way clouds form
  • 10. cloud formation – the way clouds form
  • 11. cloud formation – the way clouds form
  • 12. cloud formation – the way clouds form
  • 13. thermal – a rising air current caused by heating the Earth’s surface (radiation)
  • 14. thermal – heated air that rises thermals help these birds to soar, they help gliders soar, too. They push air into the atmosphere, that cools and forms clouds
  • 15. convection – when relatively warm air is raised into the atmosphere, often cooling and forming clouds
