TOPIC 6 ­If there is a deep melting layer in the atmosphere (temperatures are above freezing) and a shallow freezing layer above  the earth's surface, precipitation will reach the ground as [?]  Freezing rain ­­If precipitation falls through a large atmospheric layer of temperatures BELOW freezing, but then falls through a very  shallow distance near the surface of temperatures ABOVE freezing, it will likely reach the ground as [?] Snow  As surface­based air rises into the atmosphere, which of the following does NOT happen?  Dew point temp of air sample remains the same    Leeward side of mountain tends to be less cloudy and warmer  Adiabatic cooling - Decrease in temperature for an air sample resulting from a change in pressure  As surface based air rises into the atmosphere, it's density decreases  Convergence and frontal lifting o When 2 air masses clash and the lesser air mass is forced up into the atmosphere  Dry adiabatic lapse rate is 10 dec C/km TOPIC 7 If there are high energy reflectivity patterns being shown on radar (meaning there are yellow, orange, and red colors being  displayed), this could mean:  Large precipitation present in a storm   Which satellite imagery has the best overall visual resolution (which provides the sharpest visual detail of cloud  formation patterns?)  Visual Which of the following is not true of weather balloons?  They carry radiosondes which are regarded as active sensors Which of the following is an active sensor?  RADAR What type of instrument uses indirect observing methods?  RADAR  Water vapor imagery measures radiation emissions at 6 micrometer wavelengths  Darker regions are drier regions  3 body scatter spike - Radar beam strikes a large hail and bounces down to the ground and back to the thunderstorm before returning to the radar site  Infrared - Darker images represent warmer areas  GEO satellites - Can monitor weather systems over the Atlantic Ocean  Radiosondes can gauge wind speed at various altitudes TOPIC 8 -Return flow event - when air mass is over warmer body of water for long period of time -Open plains in Canada are most likely to have air mass form -If a maritime tropical pushes a continental polar front out of the way, a warm front is present -Lake effect is in place from November until the lakes freeze over -Dryline is a boundary between mT and cP -Occluded front - when 2 air masses meet and cut off a warm front -NOT condition following cold front : Southwesterly winds (increased pressure, clearer skies, and lower relative humidity are) TOPIC 9 -Least costliest hurricane season - El nino -El nino means wetter patterns in Western portion June-Aug -Warm and sunny conditions, as well as upper atmosphere air convergence corresponds with HIGH pressure Same with surface air  -Southern oscillation corresponds to shifting patterns in surface pressure -Trade winds near equator follow reverse course during el nino -La nina near South American coastline - Cooler and drier -UPPER AIR CONVERGENCE - Fair weather conditions -SURFACE AIR CONVERGENCE - Rainy and cloudy weather
