  1. 1.  This is when the temperature changes but heat is not added or subtracted. This happens because air is compressed or allowed to expand.
  2. 2.  Unsaturated air cools at a rate of 10 degrees Celsius for every 1,000 meters of ascent. This also works vise versa.
  3. 3. This is when elevated terrains act as barriers to air flow.
  4. 4.  In central North America warm air masses and cold collide, producing a front. The cooler, denser air acts as a barrier over which the warmer, less dense air rises.
  5. 5. This is when air in the lower atmosphere flows together and causes air lifting.
  6. 6.  The process when convection warm air rises over a particular local area. Glider pilots study these to know where to fly.
  7. 7.  Stability resists vertical movement. It is also a large part in the predicting of daily weather.
  8. 8.  This is the change of physical state of matter. It is a change from the gaseous phase into a liquid phase.
  9. 9.  There are four types of clouds There is the Stratus clouds The Altostratus clouds The Cirrus clouds And the Cumulus clouds
  10. 10.  High clouds are also known as the Cirrus clouds They do not produce precipitation They are the highest clouds in the atmosphere.
  11. 11.  These are the Altostratus clouds. They have water droplets or ice crystals. They are also very thin.
  12. 12.  The low clouds are the Stratus clouds They produce a light drizzle or snow They are the lowest in the atmosphere, and are known to be flat.
  13. 13.  The vertical clouds are Cumulus. These clouds look puffy and cotton like. They are also associated with hail, waterspouts, and tornadoes.
  14. 14. Liquid droplets suspended in air near surface.
  15. 15.  This is also known as the Bergeron process. It is the formation of precipitation by ice crystals.
  16. 16.  The theory of raindrop formation in warm clouds. Large cloud droplets collide and join together. Known as the Collision – Coalescence process.
  17. 17.  Precipitation composed of rain and partially melted snow. This occurs when temperatures are slightly above freezing point.
  18. 18.  Could occur in an ice storm, freezing rain, and/ or glaze event. This can occur only when temperatures are below the freezing point.
