You are watching: Which gas is most important for understanding atmospheric processes
1 warmth Up 3/14 which gas is most essential for knowledge atmospheric processes? a. Water vaporc. Carbon dioxide b. Oxygend. Ozone What is true around warm, saturation air? a.It has less water vapor than cold air. B.It contains more water vapor 보다 cold air. C.It does not contain any kind of water vapor. D.It contains the exact same amount the water vapor together cold air. If the water-vapor content of air continues to be constant, lowering air temperature reasons a(n) ____. A. Diminish in loved one humidity b. Increase in loved one humidity c. Rise in evaporation d. Temperature turning back Answers: 1) a. 2) b. 3) b.
2 Cloud formation Chapter 18. Section 2
3 Air Compression and also ExpansionTemperature transforms that happen also though warmth isn’t included or subtracted are referred to as adiabatic temperature transforms When air is allowed to expand, that cools, and when the is compressed, that warms any type of time a volume the air moves upward, it overcome through regions of successive reduced pressure dried Adiabatic price – the price of adiabatic warming or cooling in unsaturated waiting (1ºC/100 m) Wet Adiabatic price – the rate of adiabatic temperature adjust in saturation air; the is constantly less than the dry adiabatic price
4 Cloud development by Adiabatic Cooling
5 Concept check What wake up to warmth stored in water vapor once it is cooled come its dew point? Latent warmth is released.
6 Orographic Lifting and Frontal WedgingFour mechanisms that can reason air to rise are orographic lifting, frontal wedging, convergence, and also localized convective lifting Orographic Lifting – hills acting as obstacles to the circulation of air, forcing the air come ascend countless of the rainiest locations on earth are situated on windward mountain slopes By the moment the air has actually reached the leeward next of the mountain, lot of that is moisture has actually been shed Front – the boundary between two adjoining air masses having contrasting characteristics The cooler denser air acts as a barrier over i m sorry the warmer, less thick air rises
7 Orographic Lifting
8 Frontal Wedging
9 Convergence and Localized Convective LiftingWhenever waiting in the lower atmosphere flows together, lifting results, this is called convergence This leads to adiabatic cooling and also possibly cloud development On warm summer days, unequal heating of Earth’s surface ar may reason pockets of waiting to it is in warmed an ext than the neighboring air Consequently, this warmer, less thick packet will relocate upward These increasing parcels the warmer wait are called thermals The procedure that produces climbing thermals is localized convective lifting When heat parcels rise above the condensation level, clouds form
11 Localized Convective Lifting
12 Concept inspect What are thermals?Thermals are increasing parcels of air that are warmer than bordering air.
13 security Stable waiting is any kind of air i m sorry resists vertical motion due to thickness differences stable air has tendency to continue to be in its initial position, while rough air tends to climb Air security is determined by measuring the temperature the the setting at assorted heights The rate of adjust of waiting temperature with elevation is dubbed the ecological lapse rate Temperature inversion – a layer whereby the temperature rises with height; the many stable conditions for waiting Clouds linked with the lifting of turbulent air space towering and often create thunderstorms and tornados
14 Stable Atmosphere and also Adiabatic Rate
15 Absolute security
16 absolute Instability
18 Concept check What species of weather can result when stable air rises?Clear weather may occur or light-to-moderate precipitation.

19 Condensation Recall that condensation happens once water vapor in the air alters to a liquid in the kind of dew, fog, or clouds For any of the forms of condensation to occur, the air need to be saturated Generally, there must be a surface for water vapor to condense on Condensation Nuclei – small bits the particulate issue that serve as surfaces on which water vapor condenses once condensation takes place, the initial growth rate of cloud droplets is fast It diminishes quickly due to the fact that the excess water vapor is absorbed by numerous completing particles This results in the formation of a cloud consists of millions upon numerous tiny water droplets
