  2. The Launch Pad Friday, 5/27/11 No Launch Pad Today

  3. Announcements Please check your yearly average in this class. If you are below 70 for the year, please come and see me ASAP! There are only two more grades remaining!

  4. Review for Semester Final Exam Day 5 Items 68 - ??

  5. 68 Draw a diagram that illustrates the electromagnetic radiation spectrum. Be sure to include colors of visible light, and wavelength and frequency variations.

  6. 69 Standard sea level pressure in inches of mercury is: 29.92 in. Hg

  7. 70 The primary force that generates wind is: the pressure gradient force

  8. 71 What would be the result of a steep pressure gradient on an area? strong winds

  9. 72 In the Northern Hemisphere, the winds associated with a low pressure system (cyclone) blow in what general directions? counterclockwise and toward the center

  10. 73 In the Northern Hemisphere, the winds associated with a high pressure system (anticyclone) blow in what general directions? clockwise and outward from the center

  11. 74 What atmospheric condition is usually associated with a low pressure system? precipitation

  12. 75 Draw the weather map symbols for the following types of fronts: cold front warm front occluded front

  13. 76 Which type of front causes a wind shift from south or southwest to northwest? a cold front

  14. 77 What happens when an active cold front overtakes a warm front? an occluded front forms

  15. 78 Which part of the United States does the humid subtropical climate dominate? southeastern

  16. 79 The most realistic models of atmospheric warming predict that mean global surface temperature will increase about ________ during the second half of the twenty-first century. 2.5°C

  17. 80 What are the two most important elements in a climatic description? temperature precipitation

  18. 81 What one process has added the greatest quantities of carbon dioxide to the atmosphere? burning of fossil fuels

  19. 82 Define the term “dew point.” the temperature at which water vapor condenses to a liquid

  20. 83 Define the terms “evaporation” and “condensation.” Evaporation is the process of converting a liquid to a vapor (gas.) Condensation is the process of converting a vapor (gas) to a liquid.

  21. 84 List some possible consequences of global warming. more frequent and intense hurricanes shifts in the paths of large-scale cyclonic storms increase of heat waves and droughts rising sea levels
