100
What is the instrument based climate record and what does it tell us about climate variability and change?
Global Warming
100
What are responsible for rainy season/dry season climates
Subtropical climates
100
What is it that varies among regions during the 20th century in the United States
The magnitude of overall temperature change
100
What is a single cell: weak updraft. Multicell cluster: weak moderate threat. Multicell line: weak, moderate threat. Supercell: intense, high threat.
Classification of thunderstorms
100
What reports severe thunderstorms – surface winds stronger than 50 knots, .75 or penny size hail, flash floods and tornadoes. Usually form as part of squall line with cyclone, cold front.
National weather service
200
What is the latitude of the the highest mean annual surface temperature located about 10 degrees north of the geographical equator?
Heat Equator
200
What is most reliable in maritime climates, less in continental and least in arid regions
Rainfall
200
What are the potential sources of error in hemispheric or global mean temperature records
Integrity of instrument data
200
What is an enlongated cluster of thunderstorm cells that is accompanied by continuous gust front at the lines leading edge
Squall line
200
What is intense heating of air by lightning discharge is accompanied by tremendous local increase in air pressure that generates a shock wave.
Thunder
300
What is symmetrical with respect to the heat equator, decreasing magnitude towards the poles?
Mean Annual Isotherms
300
What is it that focuses on how climates form in certain locales
Genetic Climate classification
300
What are just important as temperature trends
Changes in the global water cycle, including the amount and patters of precipitation
300
What is a quasi-circular cluster of many interacting thunderstorm cells covering and area perhaps a thousands times greater than a single isolated thunderstorm cell.
Mesoscale convective complex (MCC)
300
What is frozen participitation in the form of balls or lumps of ice more than 5 mm in diameter. Develops in intense thunderstorm cells with strong updrafts, great vertical develop, and abundant supply of supercooled water droplets.
Hail
400
What is the item in both hemispheres that follow the sun, shifting North and South in tandem?
Isotherms as they progress through the year
400
What is it that infers the type of climate from environmental indicators such as distribution of indigenous vegetation
Empircal Climate Classification
400
What are weather episodes that occur on or about a certain time of year frequently that chance would dictate
Singularities
400
What complicates the motion of weather system, angle, constituent cells
Multicellular nature of thunderstorms
400
What is the scale for: : 0: 65-85. 1: 86-110, 2:111-135, 3:136-165, 4:166-200, 5: >200.
Tornadoes
500
What is it that exhibitds considerable spatial variability which can be attributed to the topography and land/sea distribution
Percipitation
500
What is it that has lots of observational data from land and sea
Computing Global Mean Surface Temperature
500
What consists of one or more convection cells each of which progresses through three stage life cycle: towering cumulus, mature, and dissipating.
Thunderstorms
500
What is humid air in the low to mid troposphere, instabilities, updrift, tropical air, mountain slopes, converging winds
thunderstorm day – a day when thunder is heard
500
What is a north south corridor stretching from eastern texas and texas panhandle northward through Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska, and into south Dakota.
