AIR MASSES AND FRONTS 1. Air masses take on the characteristics of the area where they form. Air mass temperature and moisture are consistent throughout.
Weather Patterns and Severe Storms Chapter 20
Develop and use models to explain how relationships between the movement and interactions of air masses, high and low pressure systems, and frontal boundaries.
