Weather and Climate Part 2

front The boundary between two masses of air that differ in density or temperature
continental climate The type of climate found in the great central areas of continents in the Northern Hemisphere
global warming An increase in the world's temperatures, believed to be caused in part by the greenhouse effect
convectional precipitation Hot, humid air rises from the earth's surface and cools, thereby losing its ability to hold much water (near equator and tropics)
orographic precipitation Warm, moise air is forced upward when passing over high landforms, causing precipitation (seacoasts toward costal mountains)
frontal precipitation Two fronts or air masses of different temperatures meet. Warm air force up then cools, forming precipitation. Most common
