1.In this example, the actual winds circulating around the mesocyclone all have the same speed, as shown by arrows whose lengths are ________. [X ]the same [ ]different] 2.From one location to another around the mesocyclone, the wind directions are ________. [ ]the same [X ]different 3.Doppler radar detects only those motions or components of motion that are directly toward or away from the radar. At two locations within the rotating wind pattern no air motion is detected by the Doppler radar beam. At those points, the actual wind blows along paths perpendicular to the radar beam (dashed line). Hence, the Doppler radar senses no Doppler wind speed at these locations. These two locations are sensed by the radar when its beam is in the ________ position. Draw a small circle around each of the dots associated with those two arrows to denote this 0-Doppler wind speed. [ ]1 [ ]2 [ X]3 [ ]4 [ ]5 4.Two arrows on the column circle are along the direction of the radar beam, one directly toward the radar and one directly away. These two locations are sensed when the radar beam is at the ________ positions. Because these arrows are oriented directly away from or directly toward the radar site along the beam direction, the radar will sense the full wind speed, away or toward, respectively. [ ]1 and 3 [ ]4 and 2 [ ]3 and 5 [ X]5 and 1 5.Focus on the other four wind arrow locations shown around the mesocyclone along the radar beam positions 2 and 4. These printed arrows are neither directly toward or away, nor perpendicular to the radar beam direction. Where the radar

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
