Geography 101: Notes taken, interpreted, and formatted by: Jensine Bonner Week 8 of Notes: 3/28/16 Need to know: - The Water Cycle - Products of Condensation - (3) Products of Sublimation 3/30/16 Rising Air - The temperature and pressure will decrease - The volume expands - The relative humidity will increase Descending Air - The temperature and pressure will increase - The volume contracts - The relative humidity will decrease (4) Types of Atmospheric Lifting - Orographic Lifting The process of air rising over mountains in general, but this type of lifting specifically takes place when air rises over high mountains - Frontal Lifting The process of air rising over weather fronts - Convectional Lifting The process of heated air rising spontaneously (This is the #1 type of lifting in tropical regions due to high sun angels, etc.) - Cyclonic Lifting The upward spiral of air into the lower section of a well-developed storm Clouds Clouds are categorized by altitude. Specifically low, middle, and high clouds that are over a vertical extent. Cumulus Cirrus - Thin and wispy - Made up of ice crystals that are at a high altitude - Indicate approaching rain Cumulonimbus - Range over a vertical extent - Close to the surface, but yet extend high - Thunder storm clouds - Broad at the top Contrails - Very skinny, linear, and streaky - A white streak across the sky - Produced by jets most often - Condensation trail (When this takes place, sublimation can occur too) 4/1/16 Precipitation Any water that falls from the sky- the atmosphere (6) Precipitation Types - Rain - Snow - Drizzle - Hail - Sleet - Freezing Rain - Sleet: Ice which falls from the air with ice already formed before it hits the ground. A transitional type of precipitation. Snow-> rain or rain->snow - Snow: Originally crystals, they get sticky and then clump together and create snowflakes. - Hail: Occurs in the summer only, usually during severe thunderstorms - Freezing Rain: Liquid that turns to ice when it hits the surface, and for this reason, it is difficult to drive through. Factors affecting precipitation distribution 1) Latitude (pressure belts) 2) Continentality: How deep within a continent a particular place is found Cont. location- Drier - From ocean water vapor source Coastal Location- Wetter - Closer to areas with ocean water vapor source 3) Ocean currents - (Wetter) Warm ocean currents- East Coast - (Drier) Cold ocean currents- West Coast 4) Mountains Found in areas of high mountain regions - Windward side- wetter - Lee ward side- drier (facing away) Isohyet A line which connects points of equal precipitation amounts Atacama Desert - The driest place on Earth - There is a cold ocean current - There is a rain shadow effect End of Week 8 notes. I hope that they were helpful to you. Notes will be uploaded weekly, so be sure to come back again! - Jensine
