What are some of the effects of global warming? Drought, melting glaciers, dramatic temperature changes
What do weather maps use to show areas that have the same atmospheric pressure? Isobar lines
As altitude increases, what happens to the temperature? The temperature decreases.
What conditions will start a hurricane? A low pressure area over warm ocean water.
Why does water condense on the ground in the early morning? The air temperature near the ground has reached its dew point.
Name some adaptations that animals have developed to live in extremely cold regions? Hibernation, thick fur,
What will happen when an area reaches 100% humidity? Water vapor will condense into water drops
