6.2 packet carrell

6.2 carrell

the transfer of thermal energy by collisions between particles of matter conduction
bounce back reflect
radiation electromagnetic waves that transfer thermal energy
transfer of thermal energy by the movement of matter from one place to anither convection
strength or weakens of circulating air motions stability
troposphere that involves a temperature increase with altitude temperature inversion
series of action process
the warming rays of the sun radiation
a branding iron making a mark conduction
a cool breeze convection
water freezing release of thermal energy
ice melting absorption of thermal energy
rising air is always accompanied by BLANK air sinking
air moving over a mountain range is called an BLANK mountain wave
this type of air moment creates BLANK clouds lenticular
when air is BLANK, these movements are weak stable
an BLANK occurs when air in the upper troposphere is warmer than air in the lower troposphere temperate inersion
when air is BLANK ,the vertical movements of air are strong unstable
this condition can cause a buildup of BLANK at lower altitudes air pollution
the second atmospheric layer, the BLANK, includes a region known as the ozone layer stratosphere
birds, bats, and insects fly in the BLANK, which is the lowest layer of the atmosphere troposphere
the BLANK is layer between the stratosphere and the thermosphere mesosphere
beyond the thermosphere is the BLANK, which is the atmospheric layer that is farthest from earth exosphere
earth's BLANK contains water vapor, nitrogen, carbon dioxide, oxygen, and other gases atmosphere
the BLANK extends from the mesosphere to the exosphere thermosphere
spectacular auroras might occur when charged particles in the BLANK emit vivid colors ionosphere
which three components make up almost all the energy Earth receives from the Sun visible light, ultra violet, infrared radiation
about how much incoming solar radiation is absorbed by Earth's atmosphere 20%
about how much incoming solar radiation reaches Earth's surface and is absorbed 50%
what is absorbed radiation remitted as IR
