Meteorology B

Postby John Richardsim » August 30th, 2015, 6:02 pm

One doesn't just go away from Meteorology after going to Division C...Let's get this question marathon rolling.

How would one expect local meteorological conditions to change with the approach and passing of a warm front? (and please, give more than just how the temperature would change)

Then this forum doesn't allow deletions. If you really want to get rid of it, you can just edit the post and just say <accidental duplicate> or something like that to tell other people that read it.

describe each layer of the atmosphere, what occurs in it, and why it is useful to the earth.

Answer
Troposphere: This layer of the atmosphere is closest to the Earth. Weather occurs here. It's useful to the Earth because this is where weather occurs...? It's also where humans live.

Stratosphere: This is the second layer of the atmosphere from the Earth. A temperature inversion occurs here, and it is useful to the Earth because it contains the ozone layer, which absorbs UVC radiation.

Mesosphere: This is the third layer of the atmosphere. Asteroids burn up in this layer, and noctilucent clouds form in this layer.

Thermosphere: Next layer of the atmosphere.. I don't have my cheat sheet with me but if I recall correctly, there are satellites in this layer which allow for communication. Also, molecules are so far apart that they don't really act like gases anymore

the dipstick is an intricate device used to measure the amount of rain in a rain gauge. it can also be used as a derogatory term for your meteorology partners
