VERSION B ATOC 1050 Exam I, Fall 2008 Name: ______________________ MARK THE VERSION OF THE TEST ON YOUR SCANTRON. Multiple choice and True/False. Circle the BEST answer on this paper and darken in the corresponding circle on the scantron for the multiple choice, or circle “T” for “True” and “F” for “False” on your paper and on the scantron. DON’T FORGET TO DO BOTH! Each correct answer is worth 2 points. Use the 300mb station model to answer questions 1. – 3. -39 987 O 35 1. T. F . The pressure at the 300mb station model is 987mb. 2. T . F. The dew point temperature (temp at which condensation occurs) at the 300mb station is -74 ° C 3. T. F. 300mb station models are useful for determining atmospheric conditions at the jet stream level. Use the surface station model below to answer questions 4, 5, and 6. 30 886 * * 30 4. T . F. The shown pressure shown on the above station model is 988.6mb. 5. T. F . The dew point spread is 30 ° F. 6. What, if anything, is wrong with the surface station model above? a. It couldn’t be snowing because the pressure is too high for snow. b . It couldn’t be snowing because the air temperature is too warm (30 ° C is the air temperature). c. It couldn’t be snowing because the dew point temperature is equal to the air temperature. d. Nothing is wrong with this station model. e. It couldn’t be snowing because there is no wind. 7. T . F. A front is a boundary between 2 air masses. 8. T . F . Scientists should be able to accurately forecast the weather in a few years. 9. Which does NOT apply to an anticyclone (high pressure area)? a. winds blow into a anticyclone b. winds turn clockwise around an anticyclone in the Northern hemisphere c. winds turn counterclockwise around an anticyclone in the Southern hemisphere d. “good” weather e. none of the above, they ALL pertain to cyclones 10. T . F. If the Earth’s albedo is reduced, the average temperature of the Earth could increase. 11. Stefan-Boltzmann’s Law says: E = εσ T 4 where E is total energy in cal cm -2 min -1 , ε is emissivity, σ is the Stefan- Boltzmann constant in cal cm -2 min -1 K -4 , and T is temperature in degrees K. What does the Stefan-Boltzmann Law mean?
