Just curious. I posted a Meteorology test to test exchange about a week ago, but I don't see it there. Wanted to make sure I didn't do something wrong during upload, but it appeared to work. Anyone have any ideas?

I think they have to be approved (I'm not entirely sure, however).

Does anyone have an idea of what to have on your cheat sheet? :?:

It's going to differ from participant to participant because different people can remember different things (your cheat sheet should contain things that you, yourself, can't remember from section 3. of the rules), but there are some references that nearly everyone can utilize. I'd have the EM spectrum, climate zones, figures depicting ocean currents (both wind-driven and otherwise), and other big things like that. Maybe ones on the different feedback loops, atmospheric composition, Milankovitch cycles, and the like...if there are terms you can't remember, you could always do a glossary section, and there may, still, be room for small but dense sections of notes on other topics (e.g. reasons for anthropogenic climate change) that don't lend themselves well to graphs or maps. There's plenty to put, I think!

thanks! and by the way what are feedback systems?

I recommend having the full Koppen Classification on your cheat sheet. Almost every meteorology test I've taken this year has had Koppen on it.

Here's how I've described them:

Because Earth's climate system is very complex and interconnected, disturbances in one variable will cause a change in other variables, which in turn can have affects on other variables, and so on. This can occur in cycles called feedback loops, in which a disturbance in variable A will cause a change in variable B, which in turn will cause a change in variable A. These feedback loops can be classified as either positive or negative.

Positive feedback loops are self-supporting; a disturbance in variable A will produce more of variable B, which in turn will produce more of a disturbance in variable A, and so forth. There are several important positive feedback loops in climate change, such as water vapor feedback and sea ice-albedo feedback.

Negative feedback loops are self-regulating; a disturbance in variable A will produce more of variable B, which in turn will reduce the original disturbance in variable A.

Example: the water vapor feedback loop: If the atmosphere is warmed, the air will have a higher water vapor capacity and generally the air will have a water vapor content. Because water vapor is a greenhouse gas, it will trap infrared radiation emitted by the Earth, warming the atmosphere further, and restarting the cycle.

I wish I was doing Meteorology again. Climate was the only one I didn't do :/
Everyday Weather was probably my favorite.

Well, good luck everyone <3
