©TWebb 2010 B Introduction to Meteorology I N G pages 420 - 433 O What is the angle of the earth’s axis from true north? The three ways of energy transfer are: The relative humidity is 57% at 24◦C – how much water is present? What causes dew to form? What and where is the Tropic of Cancer? The absolute humidity at 36 ◦C is… How much solar radiation do clouds reflect? Absorb? What does it mean when we say the air is saturated with water vapour? List the 3 types of solar radiation wavelengths. When was the (last) full moon of this month? Define relative humidity… What process puts more moisture in the air than evaporation? What is the The absolute humidity at 28 ◦C is… How much solar energy is absorbed by the earth’s surface? Heat of Fusion? What is the value for Water? The solar constant is The absolute humidity at 16 ◦C is… What does the word “latent” mean? Give an example… What are two benefits of water having a high SHC? How does heat get transferred through solids? How can heat get transferred through liquids? Define humidity in units. How much solar energy is used by plants for photosynthesis? Why is the winter air really dry, compared to the summer? The relative humidity is 77% at 20◦C – how much water is present?
