Question details

The diagrams below show the same mountain range with horizontal grids superimposed. The top grid has three times the horizontal resolution of the bottom grid. 4.5 4.0 3.5 s 3.0 2.5 2.0 1.5 1.0 0.5 0.0 4.5 4.0 3.5 s 3.0 3 2.5 2.0 1.5 1.0 0.5 0.0 6. Draw horizontal lines to show the average mountain height in each grid column. The first columns are done for you (see dashed lines) 7. If air flows from left to right, on which grid would air have to rise the most to transit across the mountains? (Circle one) Top grid (with higher resolution) Bottom grid (with lower resolution) 8. The amount of snow that falls in mountainous areas during winter storms is closely related to the distance that air must be lifted to cross the mountains. Discuss briefly the effects gridding topography might have on errors in precipitation forecasts
