What affects do air masses have?

An airmass is a large (usually thousands of miles across) volume of air that has horizontally uniform properties in terms of temperature, and to a lesser extent humidity. Airmasses acquire their properties from spending days to weeks over the same part of the Earth: say over northern Canada, the North Pole, the tropical Pacific Ocean, etc. Polar airmasses become very cold, especially in the winter, because relatively little sunlight shines on the poles of the Earth, and so the air mass continuously loses infrared radiation to outer space, which cools it, with little or no sunlight to offset that cooling. A "continental polar" airmass will be somewhat colder and less humid (from being over very cold land) than a "maritime polar" airmass, which has been somewhat warmed and moistened by the ocean. A "tropical maritime" airmass will be very warm and humid. A "tropical continental" airmass usually covers much of the United States in the summertime. Other airmass types include "arctic", "equatorial", and "monsoon". Fronts are the boundaries between air masses of different temperature. Extratropical cyclones (low pressure areas) also form along these fronts and draw their energy from the temperature difference between air masses. On average, warm air masses tend to flow poleward, and cold air masses tend to flow equatorward, helping to cool the tropics and warm the polar regions.

What is a occluded front?

An occluded front is when a warm air mass is caught between two cooler air masses.1. Cold occluson : If the airmass of the advancing cold front is colder than the cool airmass of the warm front, the advancing cold front undercuts and lifts both the warm and cool airmass of the warm front. The weather is initially warm front type but during the passage of front, showery weather of cold front occurs. This occlusion is comon in summers. 2. Warm occlusion : When the airmass behind the advancing cold front is less colder (cool) than the cold airmass of the warm front ahead, the advancing cold front overrides the warm front aheaad. The weather in such a case is similar to that of warm front. This type of occlusion occurs in winters and is less common.


What are the causes of thunnderstorms?

Thunderstorms form when 2 air masses collide the most common is a cold dry airmass and warm humid moist airmass. Those air masses collide and if the conditions are right the moisture will rise into the atmosphere and condense into clouds and eventually will build up enough to become thunderstorms.


How does rainfall occur?

Rain fall is created by heat. When heat rays from the sun hit the atmosphere, warm air rises. Particles in the air attach themselves to airmasses and rises, as the airmass rise it cools. For every 1000m - temp cools by 6 degrees. As the air mass rises, it gives off its humidity and they attach themselves to particles in the air; like Salt and Dust. For every 1000m - temp drops by 6 degrees. The air mass then turn into water vapour and the formation/addition of clouds, then rainfall occurs.


What is an occluded front?

A cold front normally moves at twice the speed of a warm front. An occluded front forms when a cold front catches up with a warm front. Occluded fronts are of two types:1. Cold occlusion : If the airmass of the advancing cold front is colder than the cool airmass of the warm front, the advancing cold front undercuts and lifts both the warm and cool airmass of the warm front. The weather is initially warm front type but during the passage of front, showery weather of cold front occurs. This occlusion is common in summer. 2. Warm occlusion : When the airmass behind the advancing cold front is less colder (cool) than the cold airmass of the warm front ahead, the advancing cold front overrides the warm front ahead. The weather in such a case is similar to that of warm front. This type of occlusion occurs in winters and is less common.


What happens when a warm humid air mass is pushed ahead of a cold front?

It produces lift which if in a moist enough airmass will produce thunderstorms
