  4. Lifelines • “Phone a friend"

  5. $100 How do clouds form? • A – when water evaporates and turns to fog B - when cool air rises and condenses • C – cool air near the Earth’s surface holds water • vapor. As the cool air rises it moves to a warmer • part of the atmosphere • D – when water vapor in the air condenses • D - when water vapor in the air condenses

  6. $200 What happens at a cold front? • A – strong storms are produced B – becomes foggy • C - the humidity becomes low • D - the temperatures drop • D – the temperatures drop

  7. $500 Which describes cirrus clouds? • A - the lowest clouds, big and puffy like cotton balls B – highest clouds in sky form where air is very cold B – highest clouds in sky form where air is very cold • C - seen in stormy weather followed by sunshine • D – sometimes look like a gray blanket, made up of • ice crystals

  8. $1,000 What are the four basic types of air masses? • A - cold and dry, warm, humid, warm and cold B - dry and humid, cold and dry, cold and humid • c-cold and dry, cold and humid, warm and dry, • warm and humid • c - cold and dry, cold and humid, warm and dry, • warm and humid • D – cold, dry, humid, warm

  9. $2,000 What causes weather patterns? • A - flowing air through the troposphere B – when the sun gives heat through the atmosphere • C – when warm air from the equator rises and flows • through the earth • D – currents in the atmosphere and oceans transfer • heat around the world • D – currents in the atmosphere and oceans transfer • heat around the world

  10. $4,000 Which is true? • A - winds traveling south curve to the west B – both a and d • C - winds traveling north curve east • D - both a and c • D - both a and c

  11. $8,000 What is the Gulf Stream? • A - a warm air current in the troposphere B - a warm ocean current in the Atlantic Ocean • B - a warm ocean current in the Atlantic Ocean • C - a cool ocean current in the Atlantic Ocean • D – a warm ocean current in the Pacific Ocean

  12. $16,000 Which will Most Likely bring clouds and precipitation for several days? • A – cold front B - warm front • C - stationary front • C - stationary front • D – occluded front

  13. $32,000 How do global winds and ocean currents transfer heat around the world? • A – conduction B - evaporation • C – radiation • C- radiation • D - convection

  14. $64,000 How does the Gulf Stream affect weather patterns? • A - it cools air, which warms the coast B - it warms air, which warms along the coast • B- it warms air, which warms along the coast • C - it moves air, which causes wind • D – it blocks air, which stops wind

  15. $250,000 When air is heated, the particles don’t move farther apart. • A - false • A – false B - true

  16. $500,000 Over short distances, wind blows from areas of higher pressure towards areas of lower pressure. • A - false B - true • B - true

  17. $1,000,000 Which word describes the weather during spring in North Carolina? • A – cold B - dry • C - hot • D - mild • D - mild

  18. Bonus: $10,000,000 What is the coriolis effect? • A – the curving of the wind • A – the curving of the wind B – the rising of the wind • C – the blowing of the wind • D - the circling of the wind
