  2. Layers of Atmosphere Fig. 1: http://threadslifestyle.wordpress.com/2011/09/02/ontario-weather-s2-atmospheric-layers/

  3. Composition (Fig. 2: McGill University GEOG 205 Winter 2012)

  4. Greenhouse Effect Fig. 3: http://www.nps.gov/goga/naturescience/images/Greenhouse-effect.jpg

  5. Air Mass • Air mass: a large expanse of the atmosphere with relatively uniform temperature and humidity. • Moves both horizontally (parallel to the Earth’s surface) and vertically. • Front: the line where two air masses of different temperature and humidity meet.

  6. Atmospheric Pressure • Number of air molecules • Temperature of air • Move from high-pressure areas to low-pressure areas, resulting in winds. Fig. 4: http://cikguwong.blogspot.ca/2011/06/physics-form-5-chapter-3-atmospheric.html

  7. Cold Front • Cold front: Advancing cold air meets warm air  warm air rises rapidly  cools into thick cumulus clouds  wind and heavy rain Fig. 5: http://apollo.lsc.vsc.edu/classes/met130/notes/chapter11/cf_xsect.html

  8. Warm Front • Warm front: Advancing warm air meets cold air  warm air rises gently  thin, light nimbostratus clouds  long-lasting cloudy weather and showers. Fig. 6: http://earth.usc.edu/~stott/Catalina/WeatherPatterns.html
