I don't suppose anyone has a copy of the answer key for the 2007 New York State test that is archived on the wiki? All the test pages have good links, but the answer sheet and key are leading to broken links.

Long shot, I know.

Thanks!

I have a question about seasonal temperature patterns (under item b, solar radiation and seasons): I am looking for a graph of this and am having trouble finding it. I assume they mean general worldwide seasonal temperature patterns. Does anyone have resources to suggest?

Are either of these graphs along the lines of what you are looking for?

i'm also wondering about another thing in the rules, in item a in the competition section, it say's unique characteristics (referring to the modern atmosphere), but i have spent a long time looking and haven't found anything on it. :( :(

Last year my partner and I each worked on one sheet (it is two sheets again this year, right?), and we both talked to each other to make sure we didn't have any major overlap of topics (e.g., I had a list of short descriptions of climate zones defined by the Köppen, so he didn't bother putting them on his sheet). After we got all the major amounts of info on our sheets, we started to dump a bunch of diagrams in the remaining white space between the two sheets (although he had pretty much filled his entire sheet front and back, so most of the diagrams we added at this part ended up on my sheet, as I still had almost an entire back page).

Generally, I usually follow the general order of going back and forth adding text and cutting the font size (perhaps putting a few diagrams in), and then once I feel as though I have the large chunks of info that I will need, I generally start to add a bunch of diagrams in the remaining space.

Hmmm, from the sounds of it, this is more of a catch-all rule that fills any gaps left from the other topics listed in 3.a. If anything, it seems like it could open up the possibility for a few seemingly random questions about the atmosphere.

OK thanks for the advice, (and it is one cheat sheet this year, last year was two i believe.
