Energy 100 How many degrees is the earth tilted? 23.5 degrees

Energy 200 What are the two causes of seasons? 1.Tilt of Earth 2.Earth’s Revolution around the sun

Energy 300 Word meaning seasons with equal hours of day and night Equinox

Energy 400 Proper name for season with the most hours of daylight Summer Solstice

Energy 500 Our atmosphere is made of several gases. Certain ones like carbon dioxide, methane, and water vapor are efficient at trapping heat. This trapping of heat is known as The Greenhouse Effect

Heat Transfer 100 The direct transfer of heat from the sun To the earth is called: Radiation

Heat Transfer 200 The transfer of heat from one object to another when one object touches the other Conduction

Heat Transfer 300 The transfer of heat by the movement of fluids like air or water is called: Convection

Heat Transfer 400 What type of heat transfer gets heat throughout the entire troposphere? Convection

Heat Transfer 500 Using the 3 heat transfer terms describe how the atmosphere gets heated. 1.Energy from sun radiates to the ground 2.The Ground conducts heat to air molecules 3.Heated molecules rise up through convection

Wind 100 As warm air rises it creates an area of low air pressure because it... is less dense and weighs less

Wind 200 What instrument is used to measure wind speed? Anemometer

Wind 300 Because of the rotation of the Earth, air returning to the equator gets pushed off it’s course. This is called the... Coriolis Effect

Wind 400 It’s the horizontal movement You may wager up to the amount you currently have on the Daily Double question. Wind is the movement of air from areas of high to areas of low pressure. What’s missing from this definition?

Wind 500 At 30 degrees North Latitude there are no global winds. Which way is the air mostly moving there? Down

Air Masses 100 An air mass of dry and cold air is called Continental polar

Air Masses 200 A humid warm air mass is called Maritime Tropical

Air Masses 300 Points The place where two air masses meet but don’t mix is called the Front

Air Masses 400 What instrument is used to measure relative humidity? psychrometer

Air Masses 500 Air masses are bodies of air that have what 3 similar factors? Temperature, humidity and Pressure

The Making of Rain 100 Liquid water becomes water vapor through the process of... evaporation

The Making of Rain 200 As warm moist air rises it cools. The water molecules come together in a process called. Condensation

The making of rain 300 As humid air begins to condenses it forms Clouds / Rain / Snow

The Making of Rain 400 For every thousand feet air rises it will decrease in temperature by how many degrees Celsius? Three

The Making of Rain 500 Why do fierce thunderstorms occur in Florida daily between 1 and 3 This is the time of most direct light and so the land is most heated there and rises quickly.
