QuestionAnswer
a suspended particle that provides a surface for condensation condensation nucleus
formation of a large droplet by the combination of small droplets coalescence
the temperature at which condensation equals evaporation dew point
collection of water droplets or ice crystals suspended in the air cloud
heat energy that is absorbed or released during a phase change latent heat
the mass of water vapor contained in a given volume of air absolute humidity
the process by which a solid changes directly into a gas sublimation
a mass of water vapor that condenses near the surface of Earth fog
any form of water that falls to Earth’s surface from clouds precipitation
the ratio of actual water vapor content of the air to the amount of water vapor needed to reach saturation relative humidity
What is a low-altitude billowy cloud called? a cumulus cloud
Water vapor changes into a liquid in the process of condensation.
Precipitation formed in cumulonimbus clouds when convection currents repeatedly carry raindrops to high levels is hail.
The process in which the temperature of an air mass decreases as the air rises and expands is called adiabatic cooling.
Fog that results from the nightly cooling of Earth is called radiation fog.
The purpose of cloud seeding is to induce precipitation.
A condition in which water is cooled below its freezing point without going through a change of state is called supercooling.
In order to find out how intense precipitation will be, meteorologists use Doppler radar.
Large cloud formations associated with storm systems form by lifting.
What forms when the dew point falls below the freezing temperature of water and water vapor turns directly to ice? frost
