Katabatic winds have a cooling effect, and chinook winds have a warming effect. True or false

true

slide5

Sea breezes are more likely at night, while land breezes are more likely during the day. True or false

false

5

slide7

The wind called the "norther" in Texas is really not a local wind but rather is a synoptic scale (macroscale) phenomenon. True of false

true

slide8

The existence of jet streams was first determined by Ben Franklin as the result of his kite experiments. True or false

false

slide9

For much of South and Southeast Asia, winter is a period characterized by relatively dry conditions. True or false

true

slide12

Jet stream winds are completely distinct from the midlatitude westerlies. True or false

false

12

slide13

Seasonal changes in pressure are greater over continents than over the oceans. True or false

true

13

slide14

The chinook wind has been known to cause rapid increases in temperature in the Denver, CO area. True or false

true

14

slide15

The areas of abundant rainfall on the earth tend to be

near the equator and in midlatitudes.

15

slide16

Why do westerly winds prevail at upper altitudes?

rotation of the earth and equator to pole temperature contrast

16

slide21

A Santa Ana (or Chinook or Foehn) wind is a:

very dry, warm wind coming down a mountain slope.

21

slide23

The dishpan experiments:

revealed a wavy circulation pattern when the pan was rotated.

23

slide24

Jet streams

occur at 25,000 to 40,000 feet in middle latitudes.

24

slide25

Winds are usually named for:

the direction or place from which they are blowing.

25

slide28

A primary factor causing monsoon circulations is

greater temperature changes over continents compared to oceans.

28

slide29

The amount of precipitation received at a given location is primarily controlled by

circulation patterns in the atmosphere.

29

slide30

Chinook winds, land-sea breezes and Santa Ana winds are examples of ________ circulations.

mesoscale

30

slide31

The greater strength of jet stream winds during winter is due to

greater horizontal temperature contrasts.
