Review Sheet for Spring 2009 GEOG 1112 Test #3 When/where: Friday, March 27, 2009, 9:05-9:55 am ( MLC 213, note new room ) and 1:25-2:15 pm (Chemistry Room 400) What does it cover? 1) Ackerman and Knox, chapters 6; 7; most of 8; 9; most of 10 ( see page numbers in syllabus ) Read Tables 6.1, 9.1, 10.1! 2) My lectures on: forces, force-balances, global circulation, jet streams/Rossby waves (and Rossby number), El Niño-Southern Oscillation, tropical cyclones, air masses and fronts, extratropical cyclones, the Edmund Fitzgerald 3) WebCT notes How long will it be? Same length as last time, despite more review questions. How much math is on it? Same or less than previous tests. Perhaps something using the Rossby number and bathtubs or total wind speed around a fast-moving hurricane . More likely to have visual questions on this test, for example I could give you a weather map and have you ID things, e.g. which way the winds blow around a low or where on a weather map the PGF is strongest, what the weather would be once a front passed a particular location, etc. Do I need a calculator? Yes, but only for a few questions. What is the test format? About 50 multiple-choice or true/false questions. What do I need to bring? A number 2 pencil (not provided) to use on Scantron forms (provided); calculator; CANNOT USE TEXT; CANNOT USE NOTES; CANNOT USE FORMULA SHEET. Any formulas you need, I’ll give to you. Will all the exams be like this one? Not necessarily! What should I study? See below for study questions! NOTE: I can and may ask a few questions from the text material that are not on this list. I may also ask a question in a different way than phrased on the list. ______________________________________________________________________________ GEOG 1112 Possible Test #3 Questions ( italics means map-related, * = math-related) 1. The Earth’s energy curve peaks in what part of the electromagnetic radiation spectrum? What about the Sun? 2. Air can rise by convection when… (finish the sentence!) 3. Know those cloud types! Which cloud types are most often associated with cold fronts? With warm fronts? Which cloud type causes thunderstorms? Which cloud causes a halo? 4. Why can warm air “hold” more water vapor than cold air? How does this water vapor get into the air from, say, an ocean? How does this relate to the requirement that ocean temperatures need to be about 80°F to create and sustain a hurricane? 5. Rain falls into unsaturated air. What happens over the next few hours to the surface: temp; dew point; RH? 6. In the Northern Hemisphere, a cyclonic wind pattern is (clockwise? counter-clockwise?). A NH high pressure pattern has winds that blow (clockwise? counter-clockwise?). A northerly wind is blowing TOWARD the …. 7.
