The apparent deflection of moving air, as seen by an observer on Earth, is a result of Earth's rotation
The change from gas state to liquid state.
A view from space
The best science teacher ever
A map or chart that shows the weather conditions at a specific point in time over a specific region
Global air circulation patterns within the atmosphere held to Earth by gravity and warmed as heat radiates from Earth; influenced by convection of warm less dense air (rises and spreads out) and cold dense air (sinks).
Amount of water vapor or moisture content in air.
A line on a map that connects points with the same elevation.
Bodies of air extending over large areas (1,000 miles or more) that develop and retain specific characteristics of pressure, temperature, and humidity.
A specific set of weather conditions occurring in the lowest levels of the atmosphere, reflecting the configuration of air movement.
The change from liquid state to gas state.
A large, tropical weather system consisting of an extremely low pressure air mass with heavy rains and wind speeds of at least 119km/h.
A map showing changes in elevation of Earth’s surface.
Erosion caused by the weather
Forms at the surface of Earth when a warm, moist air mass overtakes a cool, dense, and dryer air mass.
Down
A directional movement of ocean water; surface currents result from steady winds over the ocean surface; deep currents result from density variations due to temperature and salinity differences.
An air mass with less atmospheric pressure than the surrounding air masses; air moves toward the low pressure, traveling in a counter-clockwise direction.
The force exerted by the atmosphere on Earth’s surface by the weight of the air above the surface.
A form of energy internal to matter as the total kinetic energy (motion) of atoms and molecules in matter. The faster the atoms move, the warmer the matter.
Forms at the surface of Earth when a cold, dry air mass overtakes a warmer, humid air mass.
Transfer of thermal energy through circular motion caused by heating and cooling in fluids (liquids and gases).
Occurs when solid fragments of weathered rock are eroded (moved) and then dropped into a new place by wind, water, ice, and gravity.
A natural movement of air sometimes with considerable force from an area of high density and pressure to an area of low density and pressure.
The mechanical or chemical processes that break rocks into smaller pieces and sometimes change the chemical composition .
Indicates the height to which something is relative to sea level.
The process by which water, ice, wind, and gravity remove and transport sediments from one place to another.
