Weather-producing fronts are parts of storm systems called

Mid-Latitude Cyclones

Are airmasses always cold and wet

No, They can be COLD, WET; COLD,DRY; WARM, WET; or WARM, DRY.

What factors influence a regions photosynthetic productivity

The main factor influencing production is consumer demand.

Cold fronts and warm fronts in the middle latitudes are often associated with what

Cold fronts and warm fronts in the middle latitudes are often associated with low pressure. It is also associated with a middle latitude cyclone.

What is a type of nekton

, there are many types of nekton : dolphins, whales...etc.

Nekton: are organisms that live in the neritic zone ( or the middle zone in the pelagic environment)

zooplankton

Which animal would have the greatest chance of survival

one that fed through a food web

What is the fraction of the total radiation encountered that is reflected by a surface called

albedo

Difference between photic zone and aphotic zone

Photic Zone: part of the ocean that receives sunlight

Aphotic Zone: area in an ocean where sunlight does not reach and photosynthesis does not occur

Feeding relationships in which organisms feed on a variety of organisms

A feeding relationship in which organisms feed on a variety of organisms is called a food web. In a food web, one organism can also be eaten by various organisms.

Which term refers to the layer of water in which there is a rapid change of temperature with depth in the ocean

thermocline

Is a crab plankton nekton or benthos

benthos because they live on the ocean floor.

How does stable air differ from unstable air

Stable air is generally cool and dry and does not rise easily. It generally leads to clear weather. Unstable air is warm an moist an so rises easily. Because of this unstable air often leads to the formation of thunderstorms.

What are the 3 groups of ocean life

plankton-organisms that drift with ocean currents.

nekton-are free swimmers. they are able to move through

the ocean waters in search of food.

benthos-are bottom dwellers. organisms that live on or

below the ocean bottom

What are the processes that freezing nuclei play a role

The Bergeron process and the collision-coalescence process play a role in the freezing nuclei.

How do animals survive along the deeper parts of the seafloor

They feed on each other

Which form of precipitation is likely to occur when a layer of air with temperatures above freezing overlies a subfreezing layer that is near the ground

Sleet

Is density defined as a mass per unit of weight

No, density is mass per unit volume.

The classification of clouds is based on their

Form and height

Where does condensation happen in nature

Dew on grass

Clouds are formed by condensation

Fog

Thunderstorms form when warm humid air rises in

unstable environment
