An air mass gets its characteristic properties from an area known as the

Air masses get properties of the surface beneath them from areas known as source regions. Individual regions span several million square miles in size.

What are the main sources of meteoroids

1. Interplanetary debris that was not gravitationally swept up by the planets during the formation of the solar system.

2. Material from the asteroid belt.

3. The solid remains of comets that once traveled near Earth's orbit.

What is a stationary front a warm front a cold front and an occluded front
  • A stationary front marks the boundary between a warm air mass and a cold air mass where neither air mass advances or retreats.
  • A warm front is a boundary where the cooler air mass retreats and the warmer air mass advances.
  • A cold front is where the cooler air mass advances, forming the warmer air mass up.
  • An occluded front is where a cold front has caught up with a warm front, forcing the entire warm air mass up.
The jovian planets contain a large percentage of the gases

Hydrogen and Helium

The eye of a hurricane has the

Least amount of energy

What type of front forms when the surface position of the front does not move

stationary

The small particles that produce a streak of light upon entering earths atmosphere are called what

"meteors"

Which type of air mass originates in northern Canada

cT

What kind of front is created when a cold front overtakes a warm front

It's an occluded front.
occluded front.
When a cold front overtakes a warm front, the warm air mass is lifted entirely off the ground and an occluded front forms.
This is an occluded front.
An occluded front occurs

Hurricanes produce sustained winds of at least

Hurricanes produce sustained winds of at least 74 mph (119 km/h).

What type of front is shown with triangular points on one side on a weather map

Cold

Which air masses influence much of the weather in north America especially east of the rocky mountains

maritime tropical and continental polar

Why can radio telescopes be used 24 hours a day

Radio signals are not overpowered by daytime sunlight as are optical signals, thus 24 hour operation.

An air mass is a large body of air with uniform temperature and

temperature humidity and pressure

Which thickly clouded planet has radar mapping revealed a varied topography consisting of plains highlands and thousands of volcanic structures

Venus

How does the burning of fossil fuels increase the greenhouse effect

by releasing carbon dioxide into the atmosphere

Which is considered a boundary between two different fronts

both warm and cold front

What forms where warm air moves toward cold air

A warm front forms.

What do white dwarfs and neutron stars have in common

Both white dwarfs and neutron stars are extremely dense remnants of the collapsed cores of dead stars.

Thunderstorms form when warm humid air rises in

unstable environment

What is the shape of a middle-latitude cyclone

Mid-latitude cyclones are typically comma-shaped.
