VERSION A Quiz 1, ATOC 1050, Fall 2006 Name: _______________________ MARK THE VERSION OF THE TEST ON YOUR SCANTRON. True/false and multiple choice. Circle “T” for “True” and “F” of “False” or circle the BEST answer for the multiple choice on this paper and darken in the corresponding circle on the scantron. DON’T FORGET TO DO BOTH! This quiz is worth 50 points. 1. T. F. The closer the isobars are, the steeper the pressure gradient and the weaker the wind. 2. If the geopotential heights are higher in Denver than they are in Miami, then the pressure in Denver is _____ than it is in Miami. a. higher b. lower c. the same d. 30 mb lower e. 30 mb higher 3. T. F . The only difference between a radiosonde and a rawinsonde sounding is that the radiosonde is tracked by radar thereby making it possible to obtain wind speed and direction. Use the surface station model below and answer questions 4, 5, and 6.:
