What is the name of the most abundant METAL in the earths crust

Aluminium. Assuming you meant "metal" in the chemical sense and not the astronomical sense, and that you don't consider silicon a metal. If you meant in the astronomical sense, then oxygen.

An maritime tropical air mass would be best described as

warm and wet

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.

The lifting and removal of loose material by wind is called

The lifting and removal of loose material by wind is called deflation. (Deflation is a type of erosion)

(If you look up deflation, try "deflation geology" because if you don't add geology, only the economic meanings will come up.)

Most meteor showers are associated with the orbits of what

Comets

Does Sydney Australia have a temperate climate zone

Yes. Sydney lies within the temperate climate zone.

What feat did the spacecraft NEAR Shoemaker accomplish

In 2001, the NEAR-Shoemaker space probe became the first unmanned probe to soft-land on an asteroid, although it was primarily designed to do its studies from orbit.

Launched in 1996, it orbited the near-Earth asteroid 433 Eros for about a year, and in February 2001 used the last of its propellant to soft-land on the asteroid. Since it was undamaged, it continued to perform surface studies until it was shut down, about two weeks later.

What do greenhouse gases contain

The earth's atmosphere contains trace gases, some of which absorb heat. These gases (water vapor, carbon dioxide, methane, ozone, and nitrous oxide) are referred to as greenhouse gases.

In dry climates what rates of evaporation exceed

rates of precipitation

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

"meteors"

A cold dry air mass that moves over warm tropical waters will likely become

Warmer and wetter

The greatest number of thunderstorms occur in

The greatest number of thunderstorms in the world occur in Lake Victoria, Uganda, Africa. In the United States, the greatest number of thunderstorms are seen in Lakeland, Florida.

A comets tail points to what

it always points away from the sun

What planet shows evidence of water erosion

mars

Asteroids may be called planetoids minor planets because the largest known asteroid is only about kilometers in diameter

1,000 kilometers in diameter.

Which planet is best described large dirty ice ball

Pluto

Are comets part of the of the asteroid belt

No. Comets come from beyond the asteroid belt, mostly from a region called the Kuiper Belt, beyond the orbit of Neptune.

Which is not a Jovian planet

Jovian planets are also known as gas giants. There are four Jovian planets: Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune

Answer: Earth

When viewed from Earth Mars appears to change colors. This most likely happens because

gasses

Are most comets found in either Oort cloud or the asteroid belt

the asteroid belt

What do barrier islands form as a direct result of

Barrier islands form as the result of wave or tidal flow parallel to a coastline.

Are galaxies considered part of our solar system

No. Galaxies are well beyond our solar system. Our solar system is just one tiny part of the Milky Way Galaxy.

What natural warming of both earth lower atmosphere and the earths surface is the blank effect

greenhouse effect

How the geocentric model of the universe stated that

The geocentric modelof the universe stated that the earth was at the centre of the universe.
