The first half of the course examined weather. For the midterm exam, write a 750 to 1000 word essay comparing tropical and midlatitude disturbances. Your essay should demonstrate understanding of how disturbances form, including the basic elements of the heating and cooling of the atmosphere. Use specific examples from the readings, lectures, discussion boards, and your research to demonstrate the dynamics. It is very important that you use terminology from the lecture and the textbook. Use your critical thinking skills to explain and interpret.
Use specific examples from the readings, lectures, discussion boards, and your research to demonstrate your knowledge.
If you use outside sources, please cite them. I suggest that you compose the essay in Word an upload it or paste it into the text box. Please pay attention to the formatting of your document.
