What is a compass?
A magnet which tells whether the direction you are facing is north, south, east or west. It used to be a test for magnetism.
1 of 9
What is a magnetic field?
It is the volume of space where magnetism can be detected. It is found using a compass or iron filings. It is the field of magnetism.
2 of 9
Where is it warmest on a building?
On the south side
3 of 9
What is a Beaufort scale?
The measure of how windy something is, from zero to 12
4 of 9
What is the equipment to measure micro climate?
Digital anemometer, compass, cloud viewer, cloud cover, digital thermometer
5 of 9
What are the 3 types of rainfall?
relief, frontal and convectional
6 of 9
What is convectional rainfall?
The sun warms the ground which heats the air above the ground. The warm air rises in currents, the rising air cools forming water vapour which condenses into clouds and then it rains
7 of 9
how does relief rainfall work?
Moist air comes from the ocean. The wind forces the air to rise up the hill. The rising air forms water vapour which condenses forming clouds and then it rains on the windward side of the hill
8 of 9
How does frontal rainfall work?
Masses of warm air and cold air meet. The warm air mass is forced over the cold air mass. The rising air cools, making the water vapour condense, forming clouds. Then it rains.
