QuestionAnswer
a large volume of air in the atmosphere that is mostly uniform in temperature and moisture airmass
what is the difference between a continental air mass and a maritime air mass continental air masses form over land and are dry. Maritime air masses form over water and are humid
what is the difference between polar air masses and tropical air masses polar air masses take shape in high-lattitude regions and are cold. Equatorial air masses form near the equator and are warm
what air mass affects Louisiana the most and where does it form mT; maritime tropical; in the Gulf Of Mexico
what is high pressure generally associated with nice weather
what is low pressure generally associated with cloudy, rainy, or snowy weather
how does air move from high pressure to low pressure
what are the global winds easterlies, westerlies, trade winds
what happens to winds in the northern hemisphere as a results of the coriolis effect deflected to the right
what happens to winds in the southern hemisphere deflected to the left
why does the ball no roll straight across the merry-go-round the ball deflects the direction of the merry-go-round
why does descending air not allow for clouds to form the air sinks bc it is high pressure
why does ascending air allow for clouds to form as the air rises it cools, condenses, forms clouds, and rains bc it is low pressure
what is the direction around a high pressure system of wind motion clockwise
what is the direction around a low pressure system of wind motion couterclockwise
the area where two air masses with different temperatures and densities collide, but do not mix weather front
in a cold front which air mass is doing the pushing the cool air
in a cold front what forms when the warm air gets pushed "up" by the cold air clouds
in a cold front what kind of clouds form at the frontal boundary cumulas and cumulonimlous
in a cold front what weather is associated with this cloud type rain, wind, and thunderstorms
in a warm front which air mass is doing the pushing warm air
in a warm front what forms when the warm air rides "up" over the cold air clouds
in a warm front what kind of clouds form at this frontal boundary scattered clouds
in a warm front what kind of clouds are at the very front edge of this boundary cirrus
which frontal boundary will thunderstorms develop cold front
along which frontal boundary will all-day rain occur warm front
what happens at a stationary front the cool and warm air meet, but neither are strong enough to move
