MOD7 The Battle Ground Air Masses, Fronts, and Mid Latitude Cyclones Report

Question Description

Initial Post Instructions and Requirements:

  1. Choose one of these discussion topics. 
  2. Formulate an organized, clearly worded, and succinct initial post that substantively covers all discussion points stated for your chosen topic. Because your initial post will be scored on the degree to which you meet these standards, there is no set minimum word requirement. However, there is a set maximum word requirement – confine your initial post to 500 words. Remember that we are all reading each other’s posts, and one that is succinctly written is more likely to be read and responded to, thus furthering our discussion on that topic.
  3. Include at least one graphic, video, or image that visually adds to some aspect of your post – as they say, pictures are worth 1000 words!
  4. Post your initial post by the 4th day of the module week. You will not be able to see any posts until you post your initial post.

WEAX 201 Module 7 Make it Real Discussion Topics Choose ONE of the topics below. In 500 words or less, develop a structured and engaging initial post that covers all discussion points as outlined for that topic. 1. After reading the chapter 11 topic Air Masses of North America and Focus Topic Lake Effect (Enhanced) Snows, and reviewing the National Weather Service’s explanation of lake effect snow, construct an engaging 3-paragraph initial post that addresses the following points: • • • Paragraph 1: Explain the development of lake effect snow. In your explanation, include a discussion of the air mass modification that takes place as air moves across the lake, and the resulting progression of weather across the lake from the windward to leeward side. (graphics will add greatly to the discussion here) Paragraph 2: Discuss the importance of both wind direction and lake temperature in determining the amount of snowfall produced. Paragraph 3: You have THREE options for this paragraph: 1) research and discuss some of the potential safety hazards, damage to property, and disruption to human activity (including flight operations) caused by a significant lake effect snow event OR 2) research and summarize a noteworthy lake effect snow event in recent history OR 3) Relate a personal experience involving a lake effect snow event to the discussion in paragraphs 1 and 2. 2. After reviewing Module 7 – Mini Lesson: Structure and Development of Mid-Latitude Cyclones, the chapter 12 Focus Topic Northeasters, and the National Weather Service’s explanation of Nor’easters, construct an engaging 3-paragraph initial post that addresses the following points: • • • Paragraph 1: Define a Nor’easter. Discuss the time of year Nor’easters are most likely to develop, and their typical path of movement. Outline the typical weather conditions associated with these storms. (graphics will add greatly to the discussion here) Paragraph 2: Based on the concepts discussed in chapter 12 on mid-latitude cyclone development, explain how and why the typical path of movement of Nor’easters drives their rapid intensification. (graphics will add greatly to the discussion here) Paragraph 3: You have THREE options for this paragraph: 1) research and discuss some of the potential safety hazards, damage to property, and disruption to human activity (including flight operations) caused by Nor’easters OR 2) research and summarize an historic Nor’easter OR 3) Relate a personal experience involving a Nor’easter to the discussion in paragraphs 1 and 2. 3. After reviewing Module 7 – Mini-Lesson: Fronts and Aviation, construct an engaging 3-paragraph initial post that addresses the following points: • • • Paragraph 1: For either a warm front or a cold front (choose one to discuss), summarize the typical horizontal and vertical structure of the front, and the types and changes in weather elements (temperature, humidity, wind, etc.) and atmospheric stability experienced during the passage of the front. (graphics will add greatly to the discussion here) Paragraph 2: Summarize the specific aviation-related issues associated with your chosen front type while flying through the front, and while taking off or landing at an airfield during its passage. Paragraph 3: You have TWO options for this paragraph: 1) Summarize an actual aircraft incident involving the weather associated with your chosen front type, OR 2) Give us “your take” on the relevance and importance of this topic from your own perspective – personal points of view or related experiences, for example. …
