The layer of the atmosphere containing the most water vapor is the
The layer of the atmosphere that has the greatest pressure is the
The layer of the atmosphere planes fly in to avoid bad weather is the
The layer of the atmosphere with the highest temperature is the
Which list shows atmospheric layers in the correct order upward from the Earth’s surface?
What is the correct height of the mesopause in km?
Which layer of the atmosphere has the greatest density?
What is the approximate temperature of the thermosphere at an elevation of 100 km above sea level?
Warm air rising in the atmosphere is an example of heat being transferred by
The picture below shows a breeze blowing from the ocean toward the land. The air pressure at the land surface is 1013 millibars.
The air pressure at the ocean surface a few miles from the shore is most likely
**Wind will always blow from HIGH to LOW!
Earth’s surface winds generally blow from regions of higher
**Winds will always blow from HIGH to LOW!
The table below shows air pressure readings taken at two cities, in the same region of the U.S. at noon on four different days.
The greatest wind speed in the regions between City A and City B was probably measured at noon on day
**Look for the greatest difference in air pressure!
The graph shows the maximum possible amounts of water vapor that air can hold at different temperatures.
What is the approximate maximum amount of water vapor that air can hold at 20oC?
**Look at 20oC on the x-axis. Go up to the line to determine the y-value (amount of water vapor)
The layered mixture of gases surrounding Earth is called the?
The tool used to measure air pressure is
The diagram represents the global wind belts.
If NY is located at a latitude of 42°N, which wind belt has the greatest effect in NY? (use the diagram)
Hint! Where does 42°N fall between?
The curving of these planetary winds is the result of
Which diagram below best shows the locations of high air pressure and low air pressure near a beach on a hot, sunny, summer afternoon?
The lines on the weather map represent measurements for...
Hint- What does the L represent??
Which location is most likely experiencing the fastest wind speed?
**Hint- Closely spaced isobars indicate large pressure changes over a small area, causing wind speeds to increase. The closer the bars, the faster the speed!
The area that is currently under the L on the map is most likely experiencing
**Hint- L = LOUSY weather!
According to the map, what is the
Approximate temperature for Long Island,
located at the X?
In the diagram below, letters A, B, C, and D represent four different processes that occur during the water cycle.
During which process is water released from
land organisms into the atmosphere?
land organisms = living things (trees, people, animals, etc).
The arrows in the diagram below show the circulation of air on a sunny day.
The air circulation shown is caused by
The force that is responsible for keeping the atmosphere around Earth is?
The diagram shows a weather instrument.
What weather condition is measured by this instrument?
As a car travels up to the top of a mountain the pressure will.......
On Friday afternoon at 3:00 pm the weather was sunny.
By the evening, clouds appeared in the sky and by 8:00 pm it began to rain.
The pressure by 8:00 pm most likely ___________________ from the pressure measured at 3:00.
**Lousy weather (like rain) = LOW PRESSURE!
On a hot summer day as you go from the beach into the water the air pressure will _________________________.
If the air pressure is HIGH over the land and LOW over the water... what happened to the air pressure?
An increase in temperature will cause the pressure to _________________________.
The atmospheric conditions, along with short term changes, of a certain place, at a certain time.
These maps show points of equal barometric air pressure (wind speed).
