What is most likely to cause orographic lifting a sandy beach a flowing river a rocky mountain a sand dune?
Mountains would cause orographic lifting.
First there needs to be some atmospheric instability, so a layer of warmer air above a layer of colder air. Then there needs to be humidity to fuel the rapid cloud formation. Also there needs to be vertical wind shear, meaning air moving in different directions and speeds at different heights, this contributes to the intensity of the storm. Finally you need a trigger to start convection, this can be air lifting of some type…
Here's a cute way to recognize a preposition. Picture a mountain. If you can go around the mountain, over the mountain, under the mountain, in the mountain, into the mountain, beside the mountain, above the mountain, through the mountain, before the mountain, to the mountain, from the mountain, after the mountain, behind the mountain, etc., these words are likely prepositions.
Yes. Not because you are likely to miscarry, (lifting things does not cause miscarriage),but because your ligaments are softened by the pregnancy hormones making a back or joint strain more likely. Believe me (from painful experience) you do NOT want to strain your back when you are trying to balance a bump on your front.
Which of these areas most likely has the least precipitation is it coastal plain mountain top leeward side of a mountain or winward side of mountain?
Tectonic plates currently under the ocean that crash into each other and force the land upward creating a mountain that when it breaches the surface makes an island. The more likely scenario is volcanic activity that builds up land from lava flowing out and hardening as its cooled by the water and layering up till it makes an island.
Why is foliation more likely to occur during mountain building than through the contact of rock with magma?
Lt. Zebulon Pike was dispatched by Jefferson to explore the southern reaches of the Louisiana Purchase. Zeb was the first to "discover" the mountain in 1806, though he never reached the summit. Many Indians (Utes, et al) likely climbed the mountain early. And, Mexican explorers likely "discovered" the mountain before Pike. Dr. Edwin James was the first to summit the mountain.
