1 Weather review! 2013

2 Sea breezes blow from the ocean toward the shore because A.the Sun heats up the water more quickly than the land B. the Sun heats up the land more quickly than the water C. ocean currents cause the wind to blow toward shore D. breezes are created as Earth rotates on its axis

3 The diagram best illustrates how A. weather is a condition of Earths lower atmosphere B. water quickly evaporates when air temperatures are warm C. water vapor condenses into water droplets that form clouds D. winds are produced by the uneven heating of Earths surface

4 Which of the following provides the energy that causes weather? A. Fossil fuels B. Hydroelectric C. Sun D. Water

5 Which location is most likely experiencing the greatest wind speeds? A. Location A B. Location B C. Location C D. Location D

6 Which of the following best describes the weather conditions at Location B? A. Cloudy B. Windy C. Clear skies D. Clear skies and rain

7 Which of the following best describes the conditions found below? A. Hurricane B. Tornado C. Tsunami D. Water spout

8 Which of the following tools would be used to measure wind speed? A. Thermometer B. Spectroscope C. Anemometer D. Psychrometer

9 What type of weather is Dallas, Texas, likely experiencing? A. High winds and thunderstorms B. Clear skies and warm temperatures C. Cold temperatures with no clouds D. Light rain and little change in temperature

10 a b c d What type of front is represented on this map?

11 Which of the following is most likely a cause of hurricanes? a)Cooler ocean temperatures b)Warmer ocean temperatures c)Large ocean waves d)Strong ocean currents

12 What are the ingredients for a hurricane? (must have 3) Warm ocean temperature Low pressure system Warm, moist air Little or no wind shear Rotation from wind

13 What destroys a hurricane? Cold water Land – Friction – Lack of moisture

14 TEMPERATURE = = VOLUME = DENSITY = PRESSURE FASTER MOVEMENT

15 Explain convection

16 True or False Land has a higher specific heat than water False

17 What are the main differences between high- pressure fronts and low-pressure fronts?

18 Why does Earth experience unequal heating? a)The atmosphere is not equally distributed around Earth. b)Earth is tilted on its axis. c)Oceans do not equally cover Earth. d)Earths revolution is longer than its rotation

19 Which of the following occurs as a result of convection within the ocean? a)Winds b)Waves c)Gravity d)Ocean currents

20 Sequence the following: 1.Cooling air becomes denser and begins to sink. 2.Less dense air rises, forming an area of lower pressure at Earths surface. 3.Earth warms the air above it, causing the air to expand and become less dense. 4.Solar energy from the Sun warms Earths surface. 5.As rising air reaches a higher altitude, it cools and contracts. 4,3,2,5,1

21 When air is heated, its A density increases, forming an area of high pressure B density increases, forming an area of low pressure C density decreases, forming an area of high pressure D density decreases, forming an area of low pressure

22 When air moves from an area of high pressure to an area of low pressure, it causes a)an increase in temperature b)rain to fall c)the wind to blow d)a decrease in elevation

23 Air masses move across Earths surface because of differences in A air pressure B rainfall C weather D elevation

24 A student heard the weather forecaster on television say that an area of high pressure was located over his region of the state. What type of weather is the area most likely to experience? a)Cold and wet b)Dry and clear c)Stormy d)Cloudy and wet

25 Which of the following wind symbols correctly represents a west wind?

26 What equipment is used to measure air pressure? a)Wind vane b)Barometer c)Psychrometer d)Anemometer
