Test 10 domande Meteorology, tempo libero
1 - A Foehn wind occurs on the
Windward side of a mountain range and is caused by surface heating
Leeward side of a mountain range and is caused by significant moisture loss by precipitation from cloud
Leeward side of a mountain range and is caused by the condensation level being lower on the leeward side than on the windward side
Windward side of a mountain range and is caused by surface cooling and reverse air flow
2 - Which of the following changes of state is known as sublimation (in meteorology)?
Solid direct to vapour
Liquid direct to vapour
Liquid direct to solid
Solid direct to liquid
3 - You are planning to fly across a mountain range. The chart recommends a minimum altitude of 12000 feet above mean sea level. The air mass you will be flying through is an average 10°C warmer than IS
Your altimeter is set to 1023 hPa (QNH of a nearby airport at nearly sea level). What altitude will the altimeter show when you have reached the recommended minimum altitude? 11520 feet
4 - Clear ice forms as a result of
Supercooled water droplets spreading during the freezing process
Supercooled droplets freezing on impact
Ice pellets splattering on the aircraft
Water vapour freezing to the aircraft
5 - The most dangerous form of airframe icing is
6 - Which of the following circumstances most favour the development of radiation fog?
Warm moist air at the windward side of a mountain
Maritime tropical air flowing over cold sea
Moist air over land during clear night with little wind
Advection of very cold air over much warmer sea
7 - Which type wind flows downslope becoming warmer and dryer?
8 - A plain in Western Europe with an average elevation of 500 m (1600') above sea level is covered with a uniform AC layer of cloud during the summer months. At what height above the ground is the base of this cloud to be expected?
1500 - 7000' above the terrain
100 - 1500' above the terrain
15000 - 25000' above the terrain
7000 - 15000' above the terrain
9 - If you are flying at FL 300 in an air mass that is 15°C warmer than a standard atmosphere, what is the outside temperature likely to be?
10 - An aircraft flying at FL 45 (OAT 6°C) obtains a reading of 1860 ft on its radio altimeter (ground elevation 3090 ft). What is the value of the QNH, to the nearest hPa, at that point?
