1. Elements of Weather and Climate 1. Temperature 2. Wind 3. Pressure 4. Moisture 1. Water Vapor 1. Tasteless, odorless, colorless, invisible 2. Mostly constricted to the Troposphere 3. Evaporation 1. Liquid to gas 4. Condensation 1. Gas to liquid 5. Freezing 1. Liquid to solid 6. Melting 1. Solid to liquid 7. Deposition 1. Gas to solid 1. Frost 8. Sublimation 1. Solid to gas 2. Determination of amount of water vapor in the air 1. Evaporation 1. The Rate of Evaporation 1. Air/water temperature 1. High water temperature leads to high evaporation 2. Degrees of saturation of the air 1. How much water vapor is already in the air… More in the air less room for new water vapor 3. Amount of mixing (windiness) 2. Plant transpiration 1. Plants introducing water vapor through normal biological process. Small amount of water vapor. 2. Evapotranspiration 1. Evaporation +transpiration 3. Condensation 4. Precipitation 3. Measuring Water Vapor in the air 1. Humidity
