The altitude of a place affects its climate. The higher a place is above sea level?


Assertion (A) : The elevation increases, the amount of space between air particles increases causing less ability to transfer heat to the ground.
Reason (R) : The higher the elevation, the cooler the climate.


The long-term state of the atmosphere is a function of a variety of interacting elements. They are:


Which of the following is probably the most important element of climate.


Unequal heating of the Earth’s surface creates pressure gradients that result in


Assertion (A): Solar radiation first and foremost heats the Earth’s surface which in turn determines the temperature of the air above.
Reason (R) : Heating of the air determines its stability, which affects cloud development and precipitation.


Air masses as an element of climate subsumes the characteristics of


The stormy climate of the mid latitudes is a product of lying in the boundary zone of greatly contrasting air masses called the


Assertion (A) : The climate of Asia is impacted by the annual fluctuation of wind direction due to the monsoon.
Reason (R): Pressure dominance also affects the receipt of solar radiation.


Those climates bordering cold currents tend to be drier as the cold ocean water helps stabilize the air and inhibit


The orientation of mountains to the prevailing wind affects


Assertion (A) : Windward slopes, those facing into th

Perpendicular rays are usually more heating than oblique rays. It can, therefore , be said that:


The portion of the atmosphere which extends from the earth’s surface up to 6


Which is the chief characteristics of wet and dry tropics:


Consider the following statements regarding lapse rate:
1. An unsaturated air mass cools at dry adiabatic lapse rate when it rise in the atmosphere
2. The dry adiabatic lapse rate amounts to 10C per 100 meters
3. The wet adiabatic lapse rate may vary between 40C and 90C per 100 meters4. Dry adiabatic lapse rate is higher because of the release of latent heat of condensation

Which of the above statements are correct?


Consider the following statements:

1. In the high latitudes, east-coast regions are warmer than west-coasts.
2. Precipitation is abundant on the windward slopes but sparse on the leeward slopes.
3. In the subtropics, west-coasts are wetter than the east-coasts.
4. Precipitation is abundant in the middle latitudes.

Which of the above statements is / are correct?


Identify the correct sequence of the given processes regarding rainfall:


Assertion (A) : In Western Europe, rainfall decreases from the coastal areas towards the interior.

Reason (R): Most of western Europe lies in the Westerlies belt.
