  1. A vertical line means (Shallow/Steep) ELR
    Shallow
  2. When the ELR shows an increase in temp with height, there is said to be an (Inversion/Isothermal layer) which is known as a (positive/negative?) lapse rate.
    Inversion

    Negative.
  3. An adiabatic process is one where heat energy (is/is not?) lost or gained from the surroundings?
    Is not
  4. The dry adiabatic lapse rate is about what?
    3 degrees per 1000ft
  5. When the DALR lies below the ELR on the Temp/Altitude graph, (moist/dry) air air is said to be (stable/unstable)
    Dry

    stable
  6. The SALR is about ? per 1000ft and (reduces/remains constant/increases?) with altitude.
    1.5 degrees,

    Increases
  7. When the SALR is above the ELR on the Temp/Alt graph, Moist Air is said to be (stable/unstable?)
    Unstable
  8. When rising saturated air is stable, there (will/will not) be (stratoform/cumuliform/any) cloud.
    Will,

    stratoform
  9. When unstable rising air remains dry, there (will/will not?) be (stratiform/cumuliform/any?) cloud.
    Will not,

    Any
  10. When flying below the cloud base in conditions where the DALR lies above the ELR, the cloud type is most likely to be ?? and the flight conditons will be (smooth/turbulent)
    Cumuliform,

    Turbulent
  11. When thermal rising takes place and cloud develops, the base of this cloud will (rise/lower) if the dew point increases, and the base will (rise/lower) if the dew point is steady but the surface air temp increases?
    Lower,

    Rise.
