Whoa, crap! More?

This is the difference between weather and climate.
What is weather is current conditions and climate is pattern of weather over time?
This is a change in technology that has helped scientists predict weather
What is satellites, computers, radar, etc.?
This is how solar intensity affects a desert.
What is causes dry conditions and high temperatures?
It brings cool water from the north which cools Utah.
What is the effect the Kommifornia current has on Utah?
This means bad weather comes your way.
What is a drop in pressure? (low pressure system)
A cold air mass forms over this.
What is the cold continent (like Canada) or the cold ocean (like near AK)?
This causes the west side of mountains to be greener than the east side.
What is the rain shadow effect?
It sinks while warm air or water rises.
What does cold air (or water) do?
This turns the Eart’s ocean/air currents to either the right or left.
What is the Coriolis Effect?
These help scientists locate plate boundaries.
What are volcanoes and earthquakes?
Causes deep ocean trenches.
What are Convergent oceanic plates?
These are 4 of Wegener’s evidences.
What are similar landforms, matching coastlines, similar fossils, and fossils out of place for climate?
This led people to believe in Continental Drift.
What is sea floor spreading?
This is another name for the rising and sinking of magma in the asthenosphere.
What is the convection current?
These are the tall mountain ridges that exist underwater.
What are mid-ocean ridges? (caused by divergent plates)
This is the most common way to remove CO2 from the atmosphere.
What is photosynthesis?
This is how we get Carbon into our bones from the air.
What is eat plants that made CO2 into sugars? (not from breathing!)
This is the number one way to get nitrogen into your body.
What is eat legumes or animals that eat them? (by N fixation)
Burning of fossil fuels, volcanoes, respiration, warming the ocean.
What are ways to increase CO2 in the atmosphere?
This is where Ozone is bad and where it is good and why.
What is good in the stratosphere because it blocks UV rays and bad at ground level because it is bad for our health?
This is the gas that is believed to have not been a part of the early Eart.
What is O2?
This is the effect that rising levels of CO2 will have on Eart.
What is the greenhouse (warming of Eart)?
This was the significant upturn in use of fossil fuels in our history.
What is the Industrial Revolution?
These destroy O3.
What are chlorofluorocarbons?
This is a measure of how much solar radiation escapes eart.
What is albedo?
This is the primary means of storing the Sun’s energy on Eart.
What is photosynthesis (in plants)?
This is why the early morning is cooler than late night.
What is all the heat is radiating from the ground?
Coal, gas, and oil primarily come from these.
What are plants?
This is the primary location of carbon in the world.
What is at the bottom of the ocean (sediments)?
This is why heat is considered a form of energy.
What is because it can do work?
Make your wager
This is what is missing from this picture:
What is the means of fixation (bacteria, lightning, commercial means)?
