Question2

  1. There is no supply of electricity power due to a blackout

  2. The bulb is not functional

  3. The electrical switch is faulty and does not function

Question3

Figure1–A

Thisfigure is a satellite image of a storm that shows how data aboutstorms are gathered (Lutgenset al, 2012).The advantage is that it provides scientists with the ability togather information from remote locations where data may be scarce.

Figure1–24

Thefigure shows scientists using a weather balloon that has aradiosonde. This example has the advantage of gathering data on highatmospheric conditions.

Figure1.8a

Thisis an ASOS, Automated Surface Observing System. The advantage is thatit forms a network of observing the weather and gathering data on thesurface.

Question4

  1. Theory

  2. Hypothesis

Question5

  1. It would take around 3 breaths. This is because at Mt. Everest, one has to breathe around 80 times per minute other than the normal 20-30 times at normal attitude.

  2. At this level, about 80 % of the atmosphere lies below the commercial jet. This is because the pressure is at 20%of the sea level at around 12 kilometers above the sea level.

Question6

Thethermometer, since it measures temperature

Question7

Intheory and facts, all the four spheres of the earth are involved. TheGeosphere is involved since it provided the material for the mudslidein the form of steep slopes (Lutgenset al, 2012).Then the biosphere provided the soil, therefore is involved. Inaddition, the hydrosphere was involved since it gave the rain thatran down the mudslide. Moreover, the atmosphere is involved since itcreated the weather system that generated the rain.

Question8

Itis over Hawaii. This is because Hawaii is near to the equator thanAlaska.

Thethickness is the same in January and July. This is because thetroposphere seems thicker in cloudy or humid weather than in sunny orclear weather.
