●What are the three main gasses in the atmosphere? ●Temperature ○a measure of kinetic energy ●Density ●What is the relationship of temperature, pressure, and density? ●How many different layers does the atmosphere have? ●What are the 4 layers of the atmosphere? ●What is the ionosphere made up of? ●How does the ionosphere affect pilots? ●What affects the ionosphere? ●What is significant about the layer between the troposphere and the stratosphere? ●What are ISA conditions?
○ 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?
