Agents of fog formation do not include Diurnal temperatures of short ranges. Diurnal temperature range (DTR) is defined as the difference between daily maximum and minimum temperature, which describes the within-day temperature variability and reflects weather stability.
Which one among the following forces is most powerful in determining movement of wind including its velocity ?
Pressure gradient force is most powerful in determining movement of wind including its velocity. Wind is the movement of air across the Earth's surface and is produced by differences in air pressure between one place to another.
The thermosphere is a layer of Earth's atmosphere. The thermosphere is directly above the mesosphere and below the exosphere. It extends from about 90 km (56 miles) to between 500 and 1,000 km (311 to 621 miles) above our planet. Based on the vertical temperature profile in the atmosphere, the thermosphere is the highest layer, located above the mesosphere.
Which of the following statements is not true of Trade Winds?
The trade winds of the Southern Hemisphere need to cross the equator in order to reach the ITCZ. Thus, the trade winds of the Southern Hemisphere cross the equator but are deflected towards right under the Coriolis Effect.
