A mixture of gases. Show Answer
What is the atmosphere? Back to Board
The air we breathe is made up of mostly this gas. Show Answer
What is nitrogen? Back to Board
About this percent of the Earth’s atmosphere is made of oxygen. Show Answer
What is 21%? Back to Board
The layer of the atmosphere that contains weather. Show Answer
What is the troposphere? Back to Board
The reason that air pressure is greatest at Earth’s surface. Show Answer
What is gravity? Back to Board
The transfer of energy by the circulation of gases and liquids. Show Answer
What is convection? Back to Board
The transfer of energy as electromagnetic waves. Show Answer
What is radiation? Back to Board
An increase in greenhouse gases causes this. Show Answer
What is Global Warming? Back to Board
A flame hitting the bottom of a pot would be an example of this type of heat transfer. Show Answer
What is conduction? Back to Board
The natural warming of Earth’s atmosphere when water vapor, carbon dioxide, and other gases absorb and reradiate thermal energy. Show Answer
What is global warming? Back to Board
This occurs due to differences in air pressure. Show Answer
What is wind? Back to Board
Temperature differences caused by the geography of an area cause these type of winds. Show Answer
What are local winds? Back to Board
Show Answer These winds lie at point “A” A C D E B F
What are polar easterlies? Back to Board
These winds lie at point “D” Show Answer A C D E B
What are the trade winds? Back to Board
These winds blow from 30˚ to 60˚latitude in both hemispheres. Show Answer
What are westerlies? Back to Board
Sea Salt is an example of this type of pollutant. Show Answer
What is a primary pollutant? (natural) Back to Board
This is formed by combining two or more primary pollutants or a primary pollutant and a natural source. Show Answer
What is a secondary pollutant? Back to Board
This is caused when CFCs break down ozone. Show Answer
What is the ozone hole? Back to Board
This is one way to reduce indoor air pollution. Show Answer
What is: Ventilation Or Reduce the use of chemical solvents and cleaners? Back to Board
This combination of a pollutant and natural resource make up smog. Show Answer
What is vehicle exhaust, ozone, and sunlight? Back to Board
This layer of the atmosphere contains the ozone layer. Show Answer
What is the stratosphere? Back to Board
The exosphere is contained in this atmospheric layer. Show Answer
What is the thermosphere? Back to Board
This breeze occurs during the day, when cool ocean air sweeps over the warm land. Show Answer
What is a sea breeze? Back to Board
The apparent curving of the path of an object due to Earth’s rotation. Show Answer
What is the Coriolis Effect? Back to Board
In these two layers, as the altitude increases, the temperature decreases. Show Answer
What are the Troposphere and Mesosphere? Back to Board
Air travels in circular patterns called ______________. Show Answer 302928272625242322212019181716151413121110987654321
