Exam #1 Review Sheet I compiled this list by skimming through the book and our lectures during the first 5 weeks this semester. The majority of test questions will come from concepts covered in this outline. However, EVERYTHING we’ve covered, including lab exercises is fair game. I will expect that you can do simple calculations and be able to convert units within systems (seconds to minutes, kilograms to grams, kilometers to meters, etc.). However, I will not expect you to make conversions between systems or memorize obscure constants. Study hard and good luck on the exam! Chapter 1: Weather Analysis: The Tools of the Trade What is the atmosphere? Composition of the atmosphere (Permanent and Variable Gases) Vertical Structure of the Atmosphere (Troposphere, Stratosphere, Mesosphere, Thermosphere) Spatial Scales (Latitude & Longitude) Universal Coordinate System (UTC): Know how to convert from UTC to local time! Temperature Scales (Fahrenheit, Celsius, Kelvin) Classifying Weather Phenomena (The bigger the phenomena, the longer it lasts!) Gradients Observational Surface Data (***Be able to decode station data!***) Chapter 2: Radiation Why do we have weather?

    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.
