2.balloon-borne weather instrument whose sensors measure air pressure, humidity, temperature, wind speed, and wind direction
5.weather forecast that compares current weather patterns to patterns that occurred in the past
11.weather instrument used to measure temperature that contains a column of mercury or alcohol that expands and rises when heated and contract and falls when cooled
12.high-altitude, narrow, westerly wind band that occurs above large temperature contrasts and can flow as fast as 185 km/h
15.exchange of heat or moisture with the surface over which an air mass moves
16.global wind system that flows at 30? north and south latitude, where air sinks, warms, and returns to the equator in a westerly direction
17.record of weather data for a specific place at a specific time, using meteorological symbols
18.line drawn on a weather map that connects points of equal or constant values
19.study of atmospheric phenomena such as fog, clouds, snow, rain, and lightning
20.weather instrument used to measure the height of cloud layers; estimates the amount of sky that is covered by clouds
1.weather forecast that uses numerical data to determine how atmospheric variables change over time
3.large body of air that takes on the characteristics of the area over which it forms; can be described by its stability, temperature, and humidity
4.change in the wave frequency that occurs in energy when that energy moves toward or away from an observer
5.weather instrument used to measure wind speed
6.deflects moving particles such as air to the right above the equator and to the left below the equator; caused by Earth's rotation and combines with the heat imbalance found on Earth to create the trade winds, polar easterlies, and prevailing westerlies
7.average weather of a particular area over a long period of time
8.global wind system that lies between 30? and 60? north and south latitude, where surface air moves toward the poles in an easterly direction
9.boundary between two air masses of differing densities; can be cold, warm, stationary, or occluded and can stretch over large areas of Earth's surface
10.weather instrument used to measure relative humidity
13.weather instrument used to measure air pressure
14.global wind system that lies between 60? latitude and the poles and is characterized by cold air
