15 degrees celsius What do we use ISA for? We use it to determine aircraft performance. Radiation Transfer of energy by electromagnetic waves. Conduction Transfer of energy through molecular motion What is the difference between convection and advection? Convection is vertical and advection is horizontal convection/advection transfer of energy through movement of the mass of molecules What is the difference between station pressure and sea level pressure? Station pressure is measured at the station without any adjustment, and sea level pressure is the pressure measured at sea level. What can you find on a surface analysis chart? High, lows, pressure gradients -isobars Isobars lines of equal pressure on a weather map What type of information can you get on a constant pressure chart?
