Great Lake Effects The Great Lakes influence the weather and climate of nearby land regions at all
times of the year. Much of this lake effect is determined by the relative temperatures
of surface lake water compared to the surface air temperatures over those land areas.
The graph below shows the average monthly temperature of the surface water of
Lake Erie and the surface air temperature at Buffalo, New York.
In an average year, four lake-effect seasons are experienced. When surface lake
temperatures are colder than surface air temperatures, a stable season occurs.
The cooler lake waters suppress cloud development and reduce the strength of
rainstorms. As a result, late spring and early summer in the Buffalo region tends to be
very sunny.
A season of lake-effect rains follows. August is usually a time of heavy nighttime
rains, and much of the rainy season is marked by heavy, localized rainstorms downwind
from the lake. Gradually, during late October, lake-effect rains are replaced by snows.
Generally, the longer the time the wind travels over the lake, the heavier the lake effect
becomes in Buffalo.
Finally, conditions stabilize again, as the relatively shallow Lake Erie freezes over,
usually near the end of January. Very few lake-effect storms occur during this time
period.

The passage states, “The cooler lake waters suppress cloud development…” because the water cools the
air above its surface. Explain why this cool air above the lake surface reduces the amount of cloud
development.

Answers

Answer 1
Answer: The cool air above the lake surface reduces the amount of cloud development because hot air rises and cool air stays below it. Hot air is lighter than cool air so it rises. Cool air sinks below the hot air because it is denser than hot air. Clouds are formed when the moist warm air rises and cools as it rises. The hotter the air, the more hot air will rise and the greater the cloud development. In summary, clouds cannot develop from the cool air above the lake surface as it cannot rise high enough to form clouds.

The correct answer is C) IV only. Pioneer square.

According to the sector model, in the region where you would MOST likely find industrial and transportation development is in Pioneer Square.

We are talking about different districts of the city of Seattle, Washington.

The sector model or Hoyt model was developed by urbanists Homer Hoyt in 1939. He tried to offer an explanation about the way cities grew. He said that in the middle om this concentric model was downtown or the business center. To the right side of the center were the Transportation and industry. On the other side, next to the center, was the low-class residential. followed by middle class residential. On the outer of the model, occupying a small fragment of the total and connected to the center, was the high-class residential.

Identify the type of plate boundary that created the volcanoes of Iceland •a transverse boundary on land
• a convergent boundary on land
•a divergent boundary in the ocean
•a divergent boundary on land

Answers

Answer:

a divergent boundary on land

Explanation:

American tectonic plate. Spanning the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, Iceland emerged as a result of the divergent, spreading, boundary between these two plates and the activity of Iceland´s own hotspot or mantle plume.

A divergent boundary in the ocean is the type of plate boundary that created the volcanoes of Iceland.

Explanation:

Iceland is widely known for its volcanoes. Most of these volcanoes are active since the island is located on mid-Atlantic Ridge which is a divergent boundary under the ocean. The island has a vast number of volcanic systems that are currently active and out of which 13 have already erupted.

A divergent boundary such as mid-Atlantic is created when 2 tectonic plates moves away from one other and the magma is forced out from the core of the Earth towards the surface to form the new crust on the surface.
