Study Guide for Test 4 (Lecture 22 not included) Test format : on Scantron (I will supply the scantron sheets) 50 questions, in multiple choice, T/F, or possibly matching questions. Bring a #2 pencil Lectures/Chapters covered : Lectures 17-22 Source of questions: The test will come from the Lecture Notes, based on the in-class questions in this document. As explained in class, the in-class questions will be changed for the text (from true to false, etc. but they reflect the terms and concepts you should know) the “not in text” notes you took in class (the “red” notes). There are no “on your own” questions for this test. Study tips: Study/read over your class notes. For some students it will be helpful to review the same concepts in the textbook. Then look at the questions below and see if you can answer them. Do you know why a statement isn’t true? Do you precisely the definition of a term? Remember, the definition for one term, may be used in a T/F paired wrongly with the definition of another term, such as Often I will take a group of T/F questions in the notes and turn them into a multiple choice question, changing the items that were true or false. Often a multiple choice question will ask “Which is FALSE?” Therefore you must understand the material in the questions, don’t just memorize the answers to the questions the way they are, because true statement will be changed to false, etc. For example, if the answer is C in a multiple choice question in the notes, another answer will be correct on the test. Questions in Notes Lecture 17 T/F Weather and climate are the same thing. T/F The study of the atmosphere is known as atmospherics. T/F Weather deals with long term patterns of rain and temperature, while climate deals with day-to-day patterns. Matching: Northern Canada Southeastern/southwestern ocean Northeastern/Northwestern ocean A. Cold, stable air, clear skies, high pressure, and anticyclonic wind flow. B. Cool, moist, unstable conditions throughout the year. C. Warm and humid D. cP and cA E. mT T/F The snow that falls on the lee side of lakes is called leeward lacustrine precipitation.

T/F Snow occurs on the lee side of lakes because the water makes the air colder. T/F Snow occurs on the lee side of lakes when a cold air mass picks up heat energy and moisture from the lake. T/F The amount of snow that falls on the leeside of the Great Lakes is minimal. Warm air (low pressure) develops over an area, gains buoyancy, and lifts. This is known as: A. Convergence B. Divergence C. Convection D. Buoyant lift Air flowing from different directions into the same low-pressure area is converging, displacing air upward. This is known as: A. Convergence B. Divergence C. Convection D. Buoyant lift When air is forcibly lifted upslope as it is pushed against a mountain it is called: A) upslope lifting B) orographic lifting C) montane lifting D) elevational lifting Which are FALSE? A. Air on the windward sides of mountains often condenses, causing rain or snow
