How do air masses form

How do air masses form?


Location location location

  • Air masses over the equator will have high temperatures. for a long period of time, it will take on the characteristics of the land or water beneath it.

  • Air masses over polar regions will have low temperatures.

  • Air masses over water (maritime) will have high humidity (moisture content).

  • Air masses over land (continental) will have low humidity (moisture content).

Classification of air masses

  • mT for a long period of time, it will take on the characteristics of the land or water beneath it. – maritime tropical

  • cT – continental tropical

  • mP – maritime polar

  • cP – continental polar

  • cA – continental arctic

Classification of Air Masses


Location of air masses
Location of Air Masses for a long period of time, it will take on the characteristics of the land or water beneath it.


Characteristics of air masses

  • mT for a long period of time, it will take on the characteristics of the land or water beneath it. – warm, moist air

  • cT – warm, dry air

  • mP – cold, moist air

  • cP – cold, dry air

  • cA – super cold, dry air

Characteristics of Air Masses


How do air masses move

Convection! for a long period of time, it will take on the characteristics of the land or water beneath it.

How does convection work

Density! for a long period of time, it will take on the characteristics of the land or water beneath it.

  • Warm air rises.

  • Cool air sinks.
