Trivia n°11: Phenomenons on Earth

1.  A mass of cool air will sink, causing a "downdraft", which in turn causes aircraft to enter a downward motion.

2. Hot air rises, then cools and forms ice crystals, then falls as cold air. Those water droplets and ice crystals bump into each other as they rise and fall, creating positively charged small particles up top, and negatively charged heavier particles at the bottom of the area. When enough charge builds up between positive and negative ends, lightning flashes and temporarily equalizes the charged zones.

3. The Richter scale has no maximum value. It is an open-ended scale.

4. A cloudburst is an extreme amount of rain in a short time. It differs from normal rain in that it does not accumulate slowly by evaporation like normal rain. Cloudbursts accumulate very rapidly either by mixing cold and warm air that causes condensation, or by moving air quickly to a higher elevation as when a cloud front hits a mountain. The movement to higher elevation causes rapid cooling, which results in rapid condensation, which causes the extreme rain known as a cloudburst.

5. Years that can be divided evenly by 4 are leap years with the exception of years that can be evenly divided by 100 (century years) unless they can be evenly divided by 400.

6. Volcanic lightning, the ash parts are positive and negative loaded by the extreme Temperature and cause flashes. 

7. Differences in temperature create differences in pressure. These pressure differences result in wind.

8. Rayleigh Scattering. The sun produces white light, but earth's atmosphere deflects more blue wavelengths than red. The more atmosphere the light travels through, the more the color will appear yellow, then orange, then red, as you can see during a sunset.

9. Magnetic North and Geographic North are different. The magnetic poles are where the magnetic field lines surrounding our planet enter the earth, and geographic north is based on the axis of rotation. The two points are about 500km apart.

10. No

1. Wind shear

2. Water vapour freezes at the top of the cloud and turns into ice. When these small bits of ice collide into each other, there is buildup of electrical charge in cloud and when there is enough charges a giant spark generates aka Lightning.

3. 7

4. Cloudburst is extreme amount of precipitation in a short period of time which is capable of creating flood conditions. It differs from rain as rain most of the times do not pour down huge volume of water over the area and hence not creating flood like situations (mostly).

5. Since seasons and astronomical events don't repeat in whole number of days, there is a drift over time with respect to the event that the year is suppose to track. By inserting an extra day this drift can be corrected which is dont be adding a day in the month of February. The year in which it is inserted is a Leap Year and it comes after every 3 years.

6. This phenomenon is called Volcanic Lightning. In this electrical charges are generated when rock fragments, ash and ice particles in volcanic plume collide. 

7. Difference in atmospheric pressure causes wind. Wind moves from higher to lower pressure area.

8. It is due to Rayleigh Scattering caused by atmosphere of the Earth.

9. No. Magnetic North Pole is place upon where the magnetic lines of the planet converges in. From Geographical North, passes the axis about which the Earth rotates. 

10. No, its oblate spheroid in shape.

1. Wind shear movement causes aircrafts to enter a downward motion. 

2. Water vapour freezes at the top of the cloud and gets converted to ice. When these clubs  of ice collide into each other, there is buildup of electrical charge in cloud and when there is enough charges a giant spark generates also known as Lightning.

3. The max value on a Richter scale is 7. although there is no theoretical upper limit to the Richter magnitude scale, but obviously, in practice, the scale is limited both by the Earth's ability to release energy and by its ability to remain in one piece.

4. Cloudburst is extreme amount of precipitation in a short period of time which is capable of creating flood conditions due to heavy downpour over a short period of time. 
It differs from rain as rain most of the times do not downpour huge amounts of water over the area and hence not creating flood like situations. 

5. Since seasons and astronomical events don't repeat in whole number of days, there is a drift over time with respect to the event that the year is suppose to track. By inserting an extra day this drift can be corrected which is  added as a day in the month of February. The year in which it is inserted is a Leap Year.A year is a leap year if:
 a) If a year is is evenly divisible by 4 and not evenly divisible by 100.
                         OR
b.)  If a year is is evenly divisible by 100 and also evenly divisible by 400.

6. This phenomenon is called Volcanic Lightning. In this electrical charges are generated when rock fragments, ash and ice particles in volcanic plume collide. 

7. Difference in atmospheric pressure causes wind. Wind moves from higher to lower pressure areas.

8.Suns light is white but  it appear to be yellowish when viewed from Earth due to Rayleigh Scattering caused by atmosphere of the Earth.

9. No. Magnetic North Pole is place upon where the magnetic lines of the planet converges in. From Geographical North, passes the axis about which the Earth rotates.
It is important to note that what people call  the "Magnetic North on the Earth" is really the South pole of the earth's magnet, since the "North-seeking Pole" of a lodestone or small magnet (what we call "the North Pole") is attracted to it (and un-like poles attract).  You could also think of the earth's Magnetic North pole as "The place on earth to which the North Pole of magnets point."

10. No, Earth is actually oblate spheroid in shape.

1)turbulence

2)Heavier, negatively charged particles sink to the bottom of the cloud. When the positive and negative charges grow large enough, lighting occurs between the two charges. within the cloud.

3) No upper limit.

4)A cloudburst is an extreme amount of precipitation in a short period of time, sometimes accompanied by hail and thunder. The difference between rain and cloudburst is that rain is condensed water falling from a cloud while cloudburst is a sudden heavy rainstorm and cloudburst will come with hail but rain won't.

5)In the Gregorian calendar, the standard calendar in most of the world, most years that are multiples of 4 are leap years.

6) The picture is dirty thunderstorm. A dirty thunderstorm (also volcanic lighting, thunder volcano) is a weather phenomenon that is related to the production of lighting in a volcanic plume.

7) Wind is caused by differences in the atmospheric pressure. When a difference in atmospheric pressure exists, air moves from the higher to the lower pressure area, resulting in winds of various speed.

8)Our atmosphere scatters shorter to bigger wavelengths color from sunlight when the white light travels through it. During day, it scatters violet and blue colors leaving yellowish sunlight (the reason why sky is blue and sunlight is yellow)

9)Not the same location. If you were standing on the geographic north pole holding your compass, it would point towards northern Canada at Ellesmere Island. This is a difference of about 500 kilometers between the Geographic North and Magnetic North pole. This difference is called the magnetic inclination . Magnetic deviation is the error of a compass needle including nearby metallic objects.

10) No

1.It is the wind shear movement causes aircrafts to enter a downward motion. 

 

2. Heavier, negatively charged particles sink to the bottom of the cloud. When the positive and negative charges grow large enough, a giant spark - lightning - occurs between the two charges within the cloud. This is like a static electricity sparks you see, but much bigger. 

 

 

3. there is no theoretical upper limit to the Richter magnitude scale, but obviously, in practice, the scale is limited both by the Earth's ability to release energy and by its ability to remain in one piece. Though maximum value measured by it ever is 7 according to records.

 

4. Cloudburst is extreme amount of precipitation in a short period of time which is capable of creating flood conditions due to heavy downpour over a short period of time. 

Difference between rain and cloudburst is that rain is condensed water falling from a cloud while cloudburst is a sudden heavy rainstorm. A cloudburst is different from rain only in the amount of water that pours down on the earth.

 

5. Since seasons and astronomical events don't repeat in whole number of days, there is a drift over time with respect to the event that the year is suppose to track. By inserting an extra day this drift can be corrected which is  added as a day in the month of February.

A year is a leap year when it satisfies 2 conditions :i) If a year is is evenly divisible by 4 and not evenly divisible by 100.  ii)If a year is is evenly divisible by 100 and also evenly divisible by 400.

 

6. This phenomenon is called Volcanic Lightning. In this electrical charges are generated when rock fragments, ash and ice particles in volcanic plume collide. 

 

7. Wind is caused by differences in the atmospheric pressure. When a difference in atmospheric pressure exists, air moves from the higher to the lower pressure area, resulting in winds of various speeds. On a rotating planet, air will also be deflected by the Coriolis effect, except exactly on the equator.

 

8.Suns light is white but  it appear to be yellowish when viewed from Earth due to Rayleigh Scattering caused by atmosphere of the Earth.

 

9. No.It is important to note that what people call  the "Magnetic North on the Earth" is really the South pole of the earth's magnet, since the "North-seeking Pole" of a lodestone or small magnet (what we call "the North Pole") is attracted to it (and un-like poles attract).We could also think of the earth's Magnetic North pole as "The place on earth to which the North Pole of magnets point."

The difference today is about 500 kilometers. But the Magnetic North Pole is actually moving kilometers every year. This phenomenon is known as the Polar Shift Theory.

 

10. No, Earth is oblate spheroid in shape.

1. a bigger upper air stream over an aircraft based on the angle of attack of it can led into a downward motion.

2.in Cumulonimbus clouds water,ice make many collisions which leads to different electric charges as N loads place in lower and P loads place upper.
if the loads get big enough an electric current will happen as lightning due to electric potential difference.

3.in theory there is no max value for ritcher scale, as it only describes the displacement an EQ can cause in earth surface,"10 or else is no limit for ritcher but may be for other things."

4.cloudburst is meant to define an extreme rainy condition which happens in a short time.Rainfall rate greater than 100 mm/h is called a cloudburst.

5.in a solar calendar the real duration of each year is not exactly 365 earth days.is about 6hs more. 4x6h=24h.
to make "our own" seasonal and solar timings right we need an extra day each 4 years .

6.Dirty thunderstorm as the name ,idea is collisions which happens between ash particles and ice elements can create massive electric charges, which leads to these electric currents as thunder, also we have some lava bombs there too.nice pic btw.

7.the cause of wind is different air pressures. a warm air is thinner/faster thus with "lower pressure" a cool air is thicker/slower which makes it "high pressure"
as a fluid, air moves until reaches balance in pressure, which leads to winds. uneven heating of earth surfaces can cause this difference in temps.

8.sunlight has all wavelength lights.but the earth atmosphere scatters short-wavelength lights like blue, violet
so based on the angle of the sun with our position on earth some wavelength lights can be seen like yellow,orange which are the longest wavelength lights.

9.no it's not the same.the geological poles are based on earth orbit around itself.
the earth movements creates a strong magnetic formation of fluids in the outer core of the earth,this formation is called magnetic pole, which changes position on the geological measurements over time based on outer core displacements.

10.no?  i hope.

1)A wake turbulence causes air crafts to enter a downward motion.

2)Lighting is produced in thunderstorms when liquid and ice particles above the freezing level collide, and build up large electrical fields in the clouds. Once these fields become large enough, a giant spark occurs between them or between them and the ground like static electricity, reducing the charge separation. The spark can occur between clouds, between the cloud and air, or between the cloud and ground.

3) It's metrologically limited to a magnitude of 6,5 to top.

4) It's an extreme amount of precipitation in a short period of time, sometimes accompanied by hail and thunder, that is capable of creating flood conditions.       Cloudbursts are infrequent as they occur only via orographic lift when warm air parcel mixes with cooler air, resulting in sudden condensation. At times, a large         amount of runoff from higher elevations is mistakenly conflated with a cloudburst arose from the notion that clouds were akin to water balloons and cloudburst resulting in rapid precipitation.

5)A leap year occurs every 4 years.

  6)It's a volcanic lighting. The enormous quantity of pulverized material and gases explosively ejected into the atmosphere creates a dense plume of particles. The ash density and constant motion within the volcanic plume produces charge by fictional interactions, resulting in very powerful and very frequent flashes as the cloud attempts to neutralize itself.

7) It's caused by the differences in the atmospheric pressure. When a difference in atmospheric pressure exists, air moves from higher to the lower pressure area, resulting in winds of various speeds. 

8)Our atmosphere scatters shorter to bigger wavelengths color from sunlight when the white light travels through it. It scatters violet and blue colors leaving yellowish sunlight. The reason why sky is blue and sunlight is yellow.

9)No, the geological north pole is located in the middle of the arctic ocean while the magnetic north pole is a point in northern canada, where the northern lines of attraction enter the Earth. If you hold a Compass from the geological north pole it would point towards the magnetic one. This one is actually moving kilometers every year, because the Earth is dynamic and changes. It's called the Polar shift theory.

1. Which wind movement causes aircrafts to enter a downward motion?

A turbulence

 

2. What causes lightning?

Lightning is a natural phenomenon of electrostatic discharge that occurs when static electricity accumulates between storm clouds and earth.

 

3. The Richter scale, developed in the 1930s, is a base-10 logarithmic scale. What is the max value on a Richter scale?

9.0 and greater.

 

4. What is a cloudburst and how is it different from rain?

A cloud is a visible mass initially consisting of a large quantity of water droplets suspended in the atmosphere above the surface of a planet. The water vapor contained in the air will make these water droplets swell to saturation. It is the supersaturation which will cause the rain

 

5.  When does a leap year occur?

A leap year is a year with 366 days instead of 365 days (normal year). The additional day is February 29th. This happens every four years.

 

6. From the photo given above, ascertain the name and describe what's happening in short.  Amazing pic, isn't it!

It’s a volcanic storm. It is a phenomenon of electric discharge between a volcano and its volcanic plume

 

7. What is the cause of winds?

Winds are generally caused by unevenly distributed warming on the surface of the planet from stellar radiation (solar energy), and by the rotation of the planet

 

8. Even though Sun’s light is white, why does it appear to be yellowish when viewed from Earth?

The light that reaches us from the Sun is a natural light, so white. Some rays reach us directly but others are also diffused in the air. When our eyes perceive it, the red and green cones of the retina are more impressed and the Sun appears to us as slightly yellow.

 

9. Is the Earth’s magnetic north pole and geological north pole at the same location, if not state why it isn’t the same.

The twice north pole are very different : The geographic North Pole is the northernmost point of planet Earth. It is defined as the point of intersection of the axis of rotation of the Earth with the terrestrial surface of the northern hemisphere.

On the other hand, the magnetic north pole is the central point of the earth's magnetic field. The one where all the compasses point.

 

10. Earth is Prolate Spheroid in shape. Yes or No?

No, earth is an approximative oblate spheroid.

 

Thank for your Trivia KK :)

1. Pressure differences between upper and lower surface of the planes wing. 

2. Heavier, negatively charged particles sink to the bottom of the cloud. When the positive and negative charges grow large enough, a giant spark - lightning - occurs between the two charges within the cloud. This is like a static electricity sparks you see, but much bigger

3. there is no theoretical upper limit to the Richter magnitude scale, but obviously, in practice, the scale is limited both by the Earth's ability to release energy and by its ability to remain in one piece.

4.  difference between rain and cloudburst is that rain is condensed water falling from a cloud while cloudburst is a sudden heavy rainstorm. 

A cloudburst is different from rain only in the amount of water that pours down on the earth.

5. February 29 is a date that usually occurs every four years, and is called leap day

6. Looks like a thunder hit the erypting volcano, Ash makes friction what causes lighting. Yeah cool photo 😎

7. Wind is caused by differences in the atmospheric pressure. When a difference in atmospheric pressure exists, air moves from the higher to the lower pressure area, resulting in winds of various speeds. On a rotating planet, air will also be deflected by the Coriolis effect, except exactly on the equator.

8. Earth’s atmosphere scatters light in the blue and violet wavelength range, so the remaining wavelengths of light appear yellow. enough blue light is scattered out in the Earth's atmosphere to cause the Sun to appear slightly yellow.

9. The difference today is about 500 kilometers. But the Magnetic North Pole is actually moving kilometers every year. This phenomenon is known as the Polar Shift Theory.

10. Yes

1. Turbulent wind movement causes aircrafts to enter downward motion. 
 
2. Formation of opposite charge in different layers of atmosphere causes lightening.
 
3. There is no upper limit on a Richter scale. However maximum measured value till today is 9.5 .
 
4. Cloudburst is a sudden and violent form of rain, whereas normal rain starts slowly.
 
5.  Leap year occurs when the number of year can be completely divided by 4 but not if it can be divided by 100. (2016 is leap year, but 2017 and 2100 are not)
 
6. This picture is of volcanic lightening. This happens when opposite charges are built during a volcanic eruption. I am going to make this pic my lock screen cover now!!
 
7. Difference in air pressure is the cause of winds. This difference can be caused by sudden heating and rising of air in an area.
 
8. The scattering of high wavelength light (i.e. blue and violet) in atmosphere makes the sunlight appear to be yellowish.
 
9. No, the magnetic north pole and geological north pole are not at same location (11° out I guess). This is because magnetic poles are decided by the movement of molten metal in the centre of Earth, which keeps changing.
 
10. Yes

1: Thats called a wind shear.

2: On top of a cloud water damp freezes and turns into ice. Once the ice collide together, electrical charge develops in the cloud and once enough a lightning will appear.

3: 7

4: A cloudburst is a sudden copious rainfall. Its a agressive rainstorm falling for a short time in a small geological area. 

5. Since seasons and astronomical events don't repeat in whole number of days, there is a drift over time with respect to the event that the year is suppose to track. By inserting an extra day this drift can be corrected which is dont be adding a day in the month of February. The year in which it is inserted is a Leap Year and it comes after every 3 years.

6. This phenomenon is called Volcanic Lightning. In this electrical charges are generated when rock fragments, ash and ice particles in volcanic plume collide. 

7. Difference in atmospheric pressure causes wind. Wind moves from higher to lower pressure area.

8. It is due to Rayleigh Scattering caused by atmosphere of the Earth.

9. No. Magnetic North Pole is place upon where the magnetic lines of the planet converges in. From Geographical North, passes the axis about which the Earth rotates. 

10. No, its oblate spheroid in shape.

1. Wind shear 

2. Lightning is produced in thunderstorm when liquid and ice particles above the freezing level collide, and build up large electrical fields in the clouds. Once these electric fields become large enough, a giant "spark" occurs between them (or between them and the ground) like static electricity, reducing the charge separation. The lightning spark can occur between clouds, between the cloud and air, or between the cloud and ground. 

3. 9

4. A cloudburst is an extreme amount of precipitation in a short period of time, sometimes accompanied by hail. 

 The difference between rain and cloudburst is that rain is condensed water falling from a cloud while cloudburst is a sudden heavy rainstorm. 

5. The leap year occur every 4 year.

6. Volcanic lightning, also known as a dirty thunderstorm, is the unusual weather occurrence which can happen inside of a volcanic plume. The phenomenom has been spotted around the world at locations such as the Chaiten Volcano in Chile and Iceland's Eyjafjallajökull and more with photographers capturing it all in dramatic photos.

They are thought to occur when electrical charges are built up from rock fragments, ash and ice particles colliding together inside the volcanic plume producing a static charge.

7. Wind is caused by air flowing from high pressure to low pressure.

8. We need to start with the fact that white light is a combination of all colors produced equally by a glowing object. A glowing object that appears blue is blue because it's producing more blue light than it is producing red, orange, yellow, green light. The color of a glowing object depends on the temperature of the object. Now we can proceed to your question. Two Reasons why the Sun appears yellow:

1) The Sun's surface temperature (5,500 degrees C) produces a range of visible light (red to blue) in which yellow is the most plentiful, but not much more than other colors it produces. If the Sun were cooler, say 2,500 degrees C, it would look red, like the stars Antares and Betelgeuse. Or if the Sun were hotter, say 15,000 degrees C, it would look blue, like the star Rigel.

2) The Earth's atmosphere acts as a kind of light filter. Some colors are filtered more than others. The Sun is a yellow star, but the Earth's atmosphere makes the Sun look more yellow than it appears than if you were to observe it from space where it would appear more white than yellow. But you don't have to leave Earth to see that the Sun is really less yellow than it appears. If you are in the Rocky Mountains at 11,000 ft elevation, the Sun looks less yellow and more white than it does at sea level. There are fewer air molecules at this elevation to filter the Sun's other colors. Imagine what the Sun would look like from an airplane at 40,000 ft altitude--quite white! Also, when you are able to look at the Sun where you live, it's morning or late afternoon. It's easier to look at the Sun for a few seconds than it is a noon. The Sun appears more yellow at those times than it would if you were to observe it at noon (12 PM) when Sun is highest in the sky for the day; it's at its brightest and whitest--hard to look at. Because of the Sun's high position at noon, the sunlight has less air to travel through. Less air means less filtering of other colors. Remember: Light appears white because all colors are equally reaching your eyes. So, at noon the Sun appears to be more white, less yellow--closer to the way it really is

9. No. The magnetic poles wander a bit year to year.

10. Yes

1- Windsheer

2- Friction within cloud particles causes them to ionize creating different concentrations of electrons (negative charge) and ions (positive charge), when the potential difference between these charges is strong enough, electrons flow in the form of lightning through the damp air in the form of lightning from the negative to the positive charge.

3- There's no max value, but the highest registered value in history in 9.5, it can go higher if a stronger earthquake is to be registered though. So it can go as high as the strength of the registered earthquake.

4- It is an intense fall of rain over a short period of time that could be accompanied by hail or thunder and can cause floods, any rain that exceeds 100mm/hour is considered cloudburst, anything less is considered normal rain.

5- Every 4 years.

6- Dirty Thunderstorm, it's caused by the friction of ash particles just like the friction between ice particles produces thunderstorms.

7- The difference in the temperature between various areas on earth creates different air pressures within each area, the air then flows from the high pressure area to the low pressure area in the form of wind, it's all about the flow..;)

8- The atmosphere absorbs the blue color (sky color) in the white sun's light and scatters it around leaving the red and green (together they become yellow) as the visible sun light.

9- No, the magnetic poles are where the spinning axis of the Earth meets the surface, while the geological poles are the furthest points from the equator right at the tips of the Earth. There's a deviation of about 11 degrees between them.

10- No.

1. Vertical Wind Shear 

2. Lightning is caused by an electric potential difference (a voltage) being created between one cloud and another, or between a cloud and the ground. A charge of electrons builds up on the higher cloud while a lack of electrons occurs on the lower part.

3. No upper limit

4. A cloudburst is an extreme amount of precipitation in a short period of time. Rainfall rate equal to or greater than 100 millimetres (3.9 in) per hour is a cloudburst

5. Almost every four years. It occurs during those years which are divisible by 4 except for when the year is divisible by 100 but these centurial years are leap year if they are divisible by 400

6. Dirty thunderstorm or volcanic lightning. It  is caused due to the generation of electrical charge when rock fragments, ash and ice particles collide in a volcanic plume.

7. Wind is caused by differences in atmospheric pressure created, in large part, by the unequal heating of the earth's surface by the sun. Air moves from a region of higher pressure to one of lower pressure and this movement is wind.

8. Becauase of Rayleigh scattering. During the day the atmosphere scatters shorter wavelength violet and blue colors more than longer wavelength of yellow and red.

9. No they are not at same location. The Earth's magnetic north pole shifts due to magnetic changes in the Earth's core.

10. No
