Quiz 2

Our second lab quiz of the semester will be Wednesday, April 18.

It will be similar format to the first quiz: closed note, closed book, individual assignment that you only need a pen or pencil for.  It will be a front-back of a single sheet and will require you to work out similar problems to those in the lab, as well as recall information from the background information.  Do not arrive more than 10 minutes late to class.

 The quiz will cover labs 5, 6, 7, and 8.

Here are the most important things to study:

Lab 5: P1-2: the basic background information about energy as it relates to our climate.

Don't worry about the specific numbers from the energy budget figure, but the take-home message that is explored in the questions, especially the different behavior of long and short wavelength energy heating/passing through the atmosphere and Earth's surface.

Also, understand climographs and how they display temperature and precipitation data.

Lab 6: I won't have you graph anything, but I will expect you to understand relative humidity, the dew point, and the DAR, MAR, and ELR.  And answer questions based on a graph provided.

Lab 7: You need to understand the general ideas of topographic maps and be able to draw or interpret topographic lines.  Know terms like contour interval and gradient.  Don't worry about the transect part of the lab.

Lab 8:(Water Resources), know these terms: Bay Delta, infiltration, evaporation, transpiration, and runoff.
