B. Ultraviolet light cannot transmit through the atmosphere

C. Earth radiates mostly visible light

D. Visible light can escape the atmosphere

What about Earth allows it to maintain bodies of water

moderate temperatures and strong gravity (APEX)

How do waves change as they approach the shore

As waves approach the shore, interaction with the sea floor slows the waves down and the crests of the waves bunch up. They increase in height as the energy in each wave compresses into a shorter horizontal distance, but the period of the wave does not change. Eventually, the waves break.

The term for the time it takes each wave crest to pass a certain point is called

wave period

Why is the bottom layer of the ocean the coldest

Cold water sinks, while warm water rises.

In what way does ocean water move globally

Along cold water currents from the poles to the equator.

What is an effect of La Nia

Mr poppins is coming

What force acts against capillary action as water moves through the ground

Gravity

What unusual pattern occurs during El Nino

The trade winds weaken, or even blow backwards.

Why do oceanographers take measurements of the conductivity of the seawater

Conductivity can be used to calculate the salinity of the water.

Which of these zones of the ocean is deepest

Hadalpelagic

Precipitation runoff lakes and streams all come together at a

watershed

By using information about the temperature and salinity of ocean water oceanographers can determine the

density

What force works against gravity as water infiltrates the soil and moves underground

This force is called capillary action.

Which of these could be an example of a freshwater wetland

Marsh

The term for the distance over which wind blows uninterrupted is called what

fetch

One factor that could account for a drop in the water table is what

One factor that could account for a drop in the water table is temperature. If temperatures are too warm the water may be evaporating.

When the tides are especially strong due to the alignment of the sun and mWhen the tides are especially strong due to the alignment of the sun and moon it is called a oon it is called a tide

spring

Cause and effect of La Nina

the cause is the heat forming in the center of the ocean . the effect is simply la nina

What is an effect of La Nina

Ocean temperatures off the west coast of South America decrease.

What is the zone where most ocean live lives

The sunlight zone. Most animal and plant life use the sun to stay alive. The most plant life is found here. There is life in all zones in the ocean but the sunlight zone has the most.

By using information about the temperature and salinity of ocean water oceangraphers can describe the
