  2. Layers of the Earth and Pressure 100 Which layer of the atmosphere does the water cycle occur in? Answer

  3. Layers of the Earth and Pressure 200 Why is it colder at the top of a mountain than at sea level? Answer

  4. Layers of the Earth and Pressure300 The troposphere is composed of several gases. What is the most common gas in the atmosphere? Answer

  5. Layers of the Earth and Pressure400 The layer of the atmosphere nearest Earth’s surface. Answer

  6. Layers of the Earth and Pressure500 Jet planes fly here. Answer

  7. Weather100 Residents in a seaside town experience onshore breezes from the ocean during hot sunny days and offshore breezes from the land during cool nights. How does the ocean and land affect this pattern? Answer

  8. Weather200 Which most likely contributes to the rotational pattern of a hurricane that develops in the Atlantic ocean? • Gulf stream • Coriolis Effect • Low relative humidity • High pressure systems Answer

  9. Weather300 Which most likely happens when a cold air mass comes in contact with a warm air mass? Answer

  10. Weather400 Marcus hears on the radio that the temperature is 32°Celsius what type of weather should Marcus expect? • Cool weather • Cold weather • Warm weather Answer

  11. Weather500 What kind of data does the item in the picture gather? • Temperature • Wind speed • Wind direction • humidity Answer

  12. Clouds100 Stratus clouds that are in contact with the ground. Answer

  13. Clouds200 High altitude cirrus clouds are primarily formed from which substance? • Carbon dioxide gas • Solid ice crystals • Nitrogen compounds • Ozone molecules Answer

  14. Clouds300 Which phase change in the atmosphere forms clouds? • Evaporation • Freezing • Condensation • Melting Answer

  15. Clouds400 Cumulonimbus clouds often form along cold fronts. Which type of weather is most likely to occur along a cold front? • Moderate temperature & mild breezes. • Storms with hurricane winds • Rain with possible severe thunderstorms • High temperature and low winds. Answer

  16. Clouds500 What information best helps a meteorologist predict the possibility of tornadoes developing in a certain area? • Current wind conditions • Type of clouds in the sky • Percent humidity in the air • Amount of rainfall Answer

  17. Global Winds100 Besides the prevailing westerly's what else helps move weather across the United States? Answer

  18. Global Winds200 • Most warm and cold air masses that enter North Carolina are moved by global winds. Which global winds are responsible for most of the local weather in North Carolina? • northeast trade • southeast trade • polar easterlies • prevailing westerlies Answer

  19. Global Winds300 • Which best explains how the Coriolis Effect influences weather conditions? • It causes winds to rotate, forming tornadoes on Earth. • It causes winds to move to the right in the southern hemisphere. • It causes winds to turn to the right in the northern hemisphere. • It causes winds to follow a straight–line path around Earth. Answer

  20. Global Winds400 • Global winds blow in the directions shown on the map. Winds blowing from the east coast of the United States have the most effect on the weather in which of the following regions. • Africa • Asia • Europe • South America Answer

  21. Global Winds500 • The eastward movement of warm water in the Pacific Ocean during an El Nino event tends to cause which climatic effect? • Flooding on land masses in the western Pacific ocean • Heavy rainfall over land masses in the eastern Pacific ocean • Cold, windy conditions on land masses in the eastern pacific ocean • Frequent shallow tsunamis reaching land masses in the western pacific ocean Answer
