His research interests are in the precipitation and hydrology of western U. June solstice beginning of northern hemisphere summer North Pole: Longest daylight of the year South Pole: Atmospheric Moisture 6. These are portions of the annual movie we used in Chapter 1.
Electromagnetic radiation is a type of energy which contains both electric and magnetic fields, oscillating in waves. Depending on the frequency the distance between waves , electromagnetic radiation will appear and behave differently.
An increase in temperature will bring a much larger increase in radiation. The Stefan-Boltzmann Law indicates that radiation will increase to a factor of four times more than the temperature increase. An increase in temperature would result in four times more radiation from the Earth.
In the infrared, cooler clouds will radiate at longer wavelengths than warmer clouds. By imaging these differences by assigning different wavelengths to different shades of white and gray , we can tell where the clouds are both day and night. The cooler the cloud, the brighter it is in the image, and the higher it is in the atmosphere.
Thicker, lower clouds will radiate at longer wavelengths, and appear as a darker grey. Colors can be applied to the image for more precise analysis. Beam spreading occurs when the angle of the sun is lower in the sky. The same amount of solar radiation will cover a larger area, so the net radiation at any point under the beam will be less than when the beam is directly overhead.
As the sun appears to be higher or lower in the sky during the year, the point with the most intense midday heating will move as well. Chapter 2 Review Question Answers 1.
Potential Energy stored for use Water behind a dam, energy in a battery, pressure in a can or bottle or fire extinguisher, energy stored in firewood, food energy, fuels, and a can on a high shelf potential energy from gravity , a race car or locomotive at rest, leaves on a tree, a raindrop or snowflake in a cloud Kinetic Energy in use Visible light, heat radiation energy , a race car or locomotive in motion, electricity, falling leaves, falling rain or snow 2.
Conduction is transfer of energy from molecule to molecule by touching. Convection is transfer of energy through the mixing of a liquid or gas. One part is an electrical field, one part is a magnetic field.
Differing lengths of waves wavelengths result in different characteristics of their radiation. Most notably, atmospheric gases respond differently to short-wave solar and long-wave Earth radiation. Fahrenheit and Celsius scales deal with the freezing and boiling points of water. The Kelvin scale allows us to compare temperatures from absolute zero to the surface of a star and everything in between. The angle of the sun.
The Arctic and Antarctic Circles denote the lines poleward of which there is either no light or 24 hours of light at the solstices.
For example, the area north of the Arctic Circle receives 24 hours of sun on the June solstice, when the area south of the Antarctic Circle is in complete darkness. The dates of solstices, equinoxes, perihelion, and aphelion would not change. December solstice beginning of northern hemisphere winter North Pole: Sun is below the horizon, darkness is 24 hours Tropic of Cancer: Longest daylight of the year South Pole: Sun is above horizon for 24 hours Example: June solstice beginning of northern hemisphere summer North Pole: Sun is above horizon for 24 hours Tropic of Cancer: Longest daylight of the year Equator: Shortest daylight of the year South Pole: You have successfully signed out and will be required to sign back in should you need to download more resources.

The authors use everyday occurrences to illustrate meteorology and climatology. Dynamic illustrations from the book come to life in the new, fully integrated MyMeteorologyLab website, where students have access to resources such animated tutorials, videos, and satellite loops of atmospheric phenomena. Did You Know? Physical Principles features are more mathematical in nature than the rest of the text, and accommodate students who have a more quantitative interest in the topic.
Focus on the Environment feature essays examine environmental issues and themes of sustainability.
Focus on Aviation feature essays examine meteorological impacts on aviation. Focus on Severe Weather feature essays explore severe and hazardous weather phenomena. Special Interest feature essays treat interesting topics related to the chapter themes, without interrupting the main narrative.
A pull-out Cloud Chart in the back of book offers students a quick reference to cloud types and their significance. Features include: Numerous Weather in Motion video resources that offer more current, real world visualizations of meteorology Access codes that can be packaged with new copies of the textbook, or may be purchased stand-alone at www.
