Thanks for the corrections! I think i was thinking meters instead of feet for #4. Also, how'd you know where I'm from? Did we meet? (Yes, I'm one of those shady kids).
Yeah, no problem. Anything to help a fellow meteorology national competitor in this cancerous topic (climate... sheesh). Remembering the Dodgen and Mesa-Robles invitationals gives me shudders.

Heh, I know you from Meteorology at nats... I keep tabs on all my future "victims" (people I aim to beat next time at Nats hehe), and with a 7th in meteorology you're quite high on that list. I remember looking at you at the Medical Sciences Building in room 125... hehe.. Good times.

I remember you, you don't remember me.. pretty shady huh? ;)

I haven't seen the rules for this event, but, as is the case with most events, the rules usually say you can put any information from any source on your cheat sheet. So yes, pictures and diagrams should be allowed (unless I'm mistaken).

EDIT: Just realized this was in Question Marathons.

Well, it's a change in temperature following a change in radiative forcing, so it would be °C/(W/m^2)

Seems sad this question marathon only has 21 posts...

Well, 22 now...
