background image Weather & Climate Midterm/Test #1 *This study guide is split up in sections based on the dates of quizzes (i.e. 
first section is what was covered for quiz #1)
What will be covered in this study guide: 1. Quiz #1 section: a. Energy and temperature/Energy transfer 2. Quiz #2 section: a. The Greenhouse Effect/The power of water  b. Introduction to weather forecasting/Relative Humidity 3. Quiz #3 section: a. Relative humidity/How do clouds form? – Stability. b. Stability wrap-up Section 1 topics covered:  what is weather and climate?  Scientific method Earths early atmosphere Modern atmosphere energy & the 4 different types heat transfer and the 3 different types Weather: temperature-place, precipitation-time, wind (“what you get”) Climate: the average of weather and expression of the possible 
extremes (“what you expect to get):
Determines the weather Broader time period
background image 1. Is the question: Does it ever snow in Greenville? related to the  concept/definition of weather or is it related to the concept/definition of
climate? 
2. List the steps to the scientific method and the ways in which we use  it to predict the weather. 3. Earth’s early atmosphere was mostly made up of  ________________  and __________________. 4. What were the main 3 elements of Earth’s second atmosphere?   What was the main source of such elements? 5. What 2 events changes Earth’s atmosphere and what was the result? 6. What happened to most of the water vapor in the early atmosphere?
background image *the modern atmosphere composition: o nitrogen (78%) 
o oxygen (21%)
o argon (.9%)
o carbon dioxide (.037%)
o water vapor (0%-4%)
o trace gases (neon, helium, methane, hydrogen, ozone)
energy: the capacity to do something (constant) 7. Name the 4 different types of energy. What is the portion of energy that is transferred from one place to another? How does this relate to 
temperature?
*Know the melting and boiling points of water
8. Describe the 3 types of heat transfer. How is the energy transferred by? 9. At what wavelength does the sun shine in mostly? At what wavelength  does the earth emit energy?  10. Hadley circulation: the “conveyor belt” on which storm  systems travel. How does the Hadley circulation work? (3 steps)  Section 2 topics covered:
