  1. 1. By Ashley Judd
  2. 2.  Compressed air heats up because the pressure increases  When there is less air molecules in the air the temperature decreases  If the air cools to the dew point it can continue to cool http://depositphotos.com/3831034/st ock-photo-Pumping-bicycle-tire.html
  3. 3.  When the air rises over the mountains and the mountains side is edged enough to lift the air  this process heats the mountain  The leeward side of the mountain is likely to be a desert because of this http://ag.arizona.edu/watersh edsteward/resources/module/ Climate/az-climate_pg2.htm
  4. 4.  When cold air and warm air meet  The warm air rises above the cold air because the cooler air is more dense http://www.geo.hunter.cuny.edu /~tbw/wc.notes/4.moisture.atm. stability/frontal_wedging.htm
  5. 5.  Low air flows upward together; it cant go down so it goes up  This creates heating and can easily result in thunderstorms http://www.weather.com/outlook/wea ther-news/news/articles/soaking- rains-drought-florida_2011-07-07
  6. 6.  This makes air pockets due to unequal heating  The warmer air makes and uplift which birds use to help them fly to great heights  These clouds are above condensation level http://rst.gsfc.nasa.gov/Sect14/Sect14 _1c.html
  7. 7.  Warmer air is less dense so it continues to rise Vs. the cooler air around it.  You measure this by taking the change of temperature rates at different parts of the atmosphere  When air temperature decreases gradually, even when the temperature rises with height http://eo.ucar.edu/webweather/basic5 .html
  8. 8.  This is water vapor that turned into liquid on a surface due to cooling temperatures  Referred to as “dew point”  Needs a surface to condense http://artwelove.com/artwork/- id/29b69065
  9. 9.  Cirrus clouds are thin, long, and lacy  Cumulus clouds are large and bumpy with a flat base  Stratus clouds are low and often jointed together http://media.hcpss.org/newcode /ekits/ekits.php?eKitID=161
  10. 10.  Cirrus, cirrostratus, and cirrocumulus  They are thin, white, and often made of ice crystals http://www.2d-digital-art- guide.com/types-of-clouds.html
  11. 11. http://www.google.com/imgres?q=middle+clouds&hl=en&safe=active&gbv= 2&biw=1024&bih=453&tbm=isch&tbnid=sBtuNWyTP0aM- M:&imgrefurl=http://www.meted.ucar.edu/fire/s290/unit6/print_2.htm&doci d=tpdLN7pCXQIb4M&imgurl=http://www.meted.ucar.edu/fire/s290/unit6/m edia/graphics/clouds_by_height.jpg&w=500&h=350&ei=HtnzTtPBM8Ph0QHC 0_GuAg&zoom=1&iact=rc&dur=5&sig=104574880544260111202&page=3& tbnh=91&tbnw=130&start=22&ndsp=12&ved=1t:429,r:3,s:22&tx=87&ty=61  Round,  Some are more dense than others  Can span and make a sheet over the sky  Altocumulus and Altostratus
  12. 12.  Stratus, stratocumulus, nimbostratus  They show signs of rain  They produce fog http://www.free-online-private-pilot- ground-school.com/Aviation-Weather- Principles.html
  13. 13.  Caused by unstable air  They have their own category http://www.ikonet.com/en/visualdictio nary/earth/meteorology/clouds.php
  14. 14.  Can be made by prevailing winds  Moisture from warm water moves into fog  No difference between fog and clouds http://danielbroadway. blogspot.com/2009/01 /vfx-tip-3- compositing-fog-or- mist.html
  15. 15.  Relies on super cooling and saturation  Appears to be ice crystals when falling  Most ice crystals usually melt before hitting the ground http://www.geo.hunter.cuny.e du/~tbw/wc.notes/5.cond.pre cip/precipitation/bergeron_pr ocess.htm
  16. 16.  Large drops are caused by salt bringing the humidity out of the air  They collide and join with smaller droplets http://www.cbs6albany.com/sections/ weather/research/topics/topicfive/
  17. 17.  Rain laves at 0.5 mm  Snow flakes usually melt at four degrees Celsius  Ice crystals will join together at -5 degrees Celsius http://www.cco.caltech.edu/~atomic/s nowcrystals/photos/photos.htm
  18. 18.  Sleet is rain that freezes when its close to the ground  Glaze is rain that was turned to ice just when it hit an object  Hail starts small but gets bigger as it gets blown back up and down in the atmosphere http://www.kidsgeo.com/geography- for-kids/0117-sleet.php
