Notes for test on Monday, 4/15/19 please copy them into your notebook.  Study the notes below for your test this coming Monday.
The solar energy that reaches Earth surface is called isolation.
Every two to seven years a change in weather conditions known as an El Nino causes heavy rains and storms in North and South America.
An air mass that forms over a warm area of water will be warm and humid.
A barometer measures atmospheric pressure.
A current is a constant movement of ocean water.
A rotating funnel-shaped cloud with high winds is a tornado.
The condition of the atmosphere at a specific time and place is the weather.
A kind of storm that includes high winds and snow is a blizzard.
A tool used to show the weather in a specific area is a weather map.
Uneven heating of Earth causes global winds.
All weather occurs in Earth’s troposphere.
Humidity describes the amount of water vapor in the air.
A front is the meeting place between two air masses.
The Gulf Stream carries warm water from near the equator toward the poles.
A cyclone is any storm with a low-pressure center that causes a circular wind pattern.
A valley breeze is caused in the morning by sunlight that warms the mountain slopes. As the warm air rises, cool air from the valley moves up to take its place, creating a valley breeze.
The three main climate zones on Earth are: the tropical climate zone which is near the equator, and receives the most isolation from the sun, high temperatures, and heavy precipitation. The temperate climate zone which is found north and south of the equator, causing warm summer, cool or cold winters and can get all types of precipitation. The polar climate zone is near the north and south poles, which has short summer and long cold winters, not much precipitation.

Being near a large body of water keeps temperatures cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.

Tropical storms become classified as hurricanes when their wind speeds reach 119 kilometers per hour (74 miles per hour.

Warm and humid air has lower pressure than cold, dry air, so low-pressure systems usually are associated with warm and rainy or stormy weather.

Notes for Chapter test on Chapter 8 The Universe this Friday

The force of attraction between two objects is called gravity.

A telescope is an instrument that is used to see things that are far away.

A large object in space that produces its own heat and light is a  star.

The tendency of a moving object to keep moving in a straight line is inertia.

One complete trip around the Sun is a revolution.

An object in space that circle around another object is a satellite.

Most asteroids are located between Mars and Jupiter.

A comet is made of a mixture of frozen gases, ice, dust, and rock.

Patterns formed by stars are called constellations.

Earth takes one revolution around the Sun in 365.25 days.

When the Moon passes directly between the Sun and Earth it is a solar eclipse.

The Moon is a natural satellite that orbits a planet.

When a star is small and dense in its cycle it is considered a white dwarf.

The surfaces of the inner planets are mostly made of rock.

A grouping of stars that are flat with a bulge in the middle and is shaped by a pinwheel withtwo arm is called a barred spiral galaxy.

Earth revolves around the Sun because the combination of gravity and inertia causes the Earth to revolve around it.  Gravity pulls Earth towards the Sun.  Inertia acts to keep Earth moving in  a straight line away from the Sun.

Know what an umbra is and a penumbra.  Be able to explain each.

An asteroid is a rock revolving around the Sun.  It has an irregular shape that is kind of like a potato.

Scientists have found evidence that the universe is expanding in all directions in ripple.  Something had to occur at the center of the universe for those ripple to start.  This point would be where the big band occurred.
