Chapter 10 Review Earth’s Weather Patterns
The layers of air that surround Earth?
A large, rotating tropical storm system with wind speeds of at least 119 km per hour.
Give an example of an instrument that would be useful on a weather balloon.
–Thermometer measures temperature. –Barometer measures air pressure. –Anemometer to measure wind speed.
What type of cloud would you expect to see on a day with a warm front passing through?
Cumulonimbus clouds can reach up to 20 km. In which layer of the atmosphere would the top of the cumulonimbus cloud reach?
El Nino was said to give climates unusually ______________ weather.
Why does the Earth at the equator tend to be warmer than the poles? A The strong polar winds push warmer air towards the region. B. The sun’s rays only indirectly strike the equator. C. The sun’s energy is concentrated on a smaller area at the equator.
Air at different __________ holds different amounts of water.
Air at different TEMPERATURES holds different amounts of water.
The ratio of the actual amount of water vapor in the air to the total amount of water vapor the air could contain at that temperature.
The boundary between two air masses that collide?
The average of all weather conditions in an area over a period of time?
A strong wind with rain, lightning, and thunder?
List the 5 layers of the atmosphere in order from Earth to space.
