1. 3. the leading edge on a warm, moist air mass that over takes a cool, dense, and dryer air mass.
  2. 7. a high speed, meandering wind current, generally moving from a westerly direction at speeds often exceeding 400 kilometers per hour at altitudes of 10 to 15 kilometers
  3. 8. wind that blow steadily from specific directions over long distances
  4. 11. the transfer of heat by the mass movement of heated particles into an area of cooler fluid
  5. 17. a directional movement of ocean water; surface currants result from steady winds over the ocean surface; deep currents result from density variations due to temperature and salinity differences.
  6. 18. a cool breeze blowing from the sea toward the land
  1. 1. the leading edge on a cold, dry air mass that over takes a warmer, humid air mass.
  2. 2. a condition of the atmosphere in which the pressure is below average.
  3. 4. air moving from an area of high pressure to an area of low pressure
  4. 5. the factors that affect the weather; atmospheric pressure, air temperature, humidity wind etc
  5. 6. rapidly flowing ocean currents that originate in the Caribbean Sea it carries warm water from the Caribbean Sea northeast along the coast of United States before veering toward Europe and colder waters.
  6. 9. a collection of air masses, neither of which is stronger enough to replace the other
  7. 10. The day state of the atmosphere.
  8. 11. the apparent deflection of moving air, as see by an observer on earth as a result of earth’s rotation
  9. 12. the weather in some location averaged over some long period of time.
  10. 13. the front formed when a cold front occludes a warm front
  11. 14. a condition of the atmosphere in which the pressure is above average.
  12. 15. one of a number of winds that are influenced predominantly by the topographic features of a relatively small reach
  13. 16. that blows from the land toward open water
  14. 19. a body of air extending over a large area (1000 miles or more) that develops and retains specific characteristics of pressure, temperature, and humidity
