Meteorology B

Post by OrigamiPlanet » October 20th, 2017, 1:11 pm

I'll start meteorology then.

In the Koppen Climate Classification, why is Type B considered irregular compared to the other types?

I guess I'll change the questions up then? I'll put three instead of one.

1) What does the acronym ENSO mean?
2) Define the three-cell model?
3) True or false: Cirrus clouds are wispy strands at higher altitudes in our atmosphere?

1. El Nino Southern Oscillation
2. The model that separates the earth's atmosphere into three cells on both the northern and southern hemisphere (hadley, ferrel, + polar)
3. True
New Q:
Name the commonly used metric unit that a barometer measures, and give its SI base unit counterpart

Barometers measure millibars, with its SI base counterpart being bars.

My fault, I meant an SI derived unit (although bars are a metric unit, not an SI unit)

Then I believe that measurement should be pascals

Imagine a continent that is comprised of solely highlands. It is located 30 degrees North, and it is semiarid. It is very high up, so it is very cold.

Given this information, what Koppen Climate classification is this?

I think that question was too vague, sorry! I'll make another one.

1) Difference between Kelvin and Celsius?
2) Why could volcanic eruptions cause global cooling? Include the Mount Tambora case to support your answer.
3) What does the Thornthwaite classification system measure?
4) The image shown above reveals what kind of cloud(s)? Yes, this is the infamous windows background. :geek:

Kelvin is based off absolute 0, whereas Celsius is based off the melting point of ice and boiling point of water

Volcanic eruptions cause global cooling due to it's sulfur emissions. The sulfur dioxide mixes with water vapor and hydroxide to create aerosols that stay in the atmosphere for years and scatter solar radiation, thus lowering the amount of radiation the earth absorbs. Mount Tambora released so much Sulfur Dioxide that the earth cooled 0.4C-0.7C and a summer did not occur

The Thornthwaite classification system classifies by vegetation characteristic and precipitation. (Precipitation/Evaporation or P/E)

Cirrus, altocumulus, and cumulus? hehe
Here we go again!
