Presentation on theme: "8 th Grade Science Meteorology Review A:B: The sunHumidity C:D: Air massesCyclones #1 Where does Earth get the energy that produces global weather patterns?"— Presentation transcript:
A:B: No, areas near the equator get more sun, while areas near the poles get less sun Yes, because the Sun heats all parts of the Earth evenly C:D: Both of these Neither of these #2 Do all of the areas on Earth get the same amount of the Sun energy? Why or Why not?
A. No, areas near the equator get more sun, while areas near the poles get less sun
A:B: The Moon phases The Earth’s weather systems C:D: Both of these Neither of these #3 What does the uneven heating of the Earth by the sun cause?
A:B: Ocean water absorbs heat during the day Ocean water releases heat at night C:D: Oceans water does not effect climate. A and B #8 How do the oceans moderate the range of daily temperature on Earth?
D. A and B Oceans absorb heat during the day and release energy at night.
A:B: When warm air cools down In the Stratosphere C:D: When cool air warms up None of these #9 Where would clouds form in a convection current
A:B: Yes. Both are over a long period of time No. Weather is at an exact moment and climate is over a long period of time #13 Are weather and climate the same? Why or Why not? C:D: Stationary frontOccluded front
B. No. Weather is at an exact moment and climate is over a long period of time.
A:B: Global windsPrevailing westerlies C:D: Surface windsPolar jet stream #14 What are responsible for the movement of much of the weather across the United States?
A:B: The current prevents sunlight from reaching Iceland. The current causes Iceland’s climate to be colder. C:D: The current causes Iceland’s climate to be warmer. The current carries cold water to Iceland. Iceland #21 According to this diagram, how does the Gulf Stream probably affect Iceland?
C. The current causes Iceland’s climate to be warmer.
A:B: near the equator near the polar regions C:D: NeitherBoth #22 Most ocean currents originate __________ where the ocean is warmest.
A:B: Cool cold ocean currents cause coastal temperatures to cool Warm ocean currents cause coastal temperatures to warm C:D: NeitherBoth #23 How do ocean currents effect the climate of coastal areas?
A:B: Currents carry warm water along the ocean surface Evaporating water provide energy in the atmosphere C:D: Rising tides cause the ocean surface to become cooler None of these #24 Which of these explains how energy is transferred from the ocean to a hurricane?
B. Evaporating water provides energy in the atmosphere
A:B: where oceans are coolest where oceans are warmest C:D: where landmasses are the largest None of these #25 Hurricanes most often occur ______________?
A:B: The ocean heats the atmosphere above it. The ocean provides heat energy for thunderstorms #26 How does the ocean affect Earth’s climate during the summer in coastal regions. C:D: The ocean heats up the rock and soil on the land. The ocean helps to cool coastal regions.
