Chapter 2 Weather Patterns Vocabulary Review
the condition of Earth’s atmosphere at a particular time and place weather
the force of air molecules pushing on an area air pressure
a wind that flows in the upper troposphere from west to east over vast distances at great speeds jet stream
any type of liquid or solid water that falls to Earth’s surface, such as rain, snow, sleet, or hail precipitation
the temperature at which air with a given amount of water vapor will reach saturation dew point
the process by which liquid changes to gas evaporation
a wind that changes direction with the seasons monsoon
the influence of Earth’s rotation on things that move over Earth Coriolis effect
the horizontal movement of air caused by differences in air pressure wind
a condition of the atmosphere in which the rates of evaporation and condensation are the same saturation
rain that freezes when it hits the ground or other surface and coats the surface with ice freezing rain
the comparison of the amount of water vapor in the air with the maximum amount of water vapor that could be present in air at that temperature relative humidity
winds that travel over long distances in steady patterns over several weeks global winds
layered lumps or balls of ice that fall from cumulonimbus clouds hail
the amount of water vapor in the air humidity
the process by which a gas changes to a liquid condensation
small pellets of ice that form when rain passes through a layer of cold air and freezes before hitting the ground sleet
an instrument that measures air pressure in the atmosphere barometer
rain that has become more acidic than normal due to pollution acid rain

Notes Chapter Air pressure is the force of air molecules pushing on an area. The greater the force the higher the air pressure because air.
Notes on Weather A.Weather is the short term condition of the atmosphere over a small area. B.Weather is described by its conditions, or variables that.
Weather Instruments Storms Clouds And Wind Water Cycle.
The Atmosphere Chapter 16 Section 1. The Water Cycle The water cycle is a continuous movement of water from water sources, such as lakes and oceans Condensation.
Unit 1 Lesson 2 The Water Cycle
4 th Grade Weather and Water Cycle Vocabulary Mrs. Thornburg’s version.
What is weather? Weather is a state of the atmosphere (troposphere) at a specific time and place, determined by factors including: Air pressure Humidity.
Weather An Overview. Atmosphere b Is a mixture of the gasses that surround the Earth. The atmosphere gives us the air we breath as well as protects.
Weather Patterns 16.1 The atmosphere's air pressure changes. 16.2
Weather State Objectives 4.c, 4.e, 4.h..
Think About This… In your science journal, think about the following question: – What are some things that meteorologists look at to collect data?
Wind and Rain 3/8/10. Wind Wind – the horizontal movement of air from an area of high pressure to an area of lower pressure. All winds are caused.
Water in the Atmosphere. States of Matter Water vapor – gaseous form (0 to 4% by volume) Water – rain, dew, clouds, fog Ice – snow, hail, clouds.
Energy in the Atmosphere Energy from the sun travels to Earth as electromagnetic waves – mostly visible light, infrared radiation (longer wavelengths)
