Topography and Clouds

  1. After reviewing the topic Topography and Clouds in chapter 6, construct an engaging 3-paragraph initial post that addresses the following points in 500 words or less:
    • Paragraph 1: Briefly explain the atmospheric conditions that promote the formation “waves” on the leeside (downwind side) of mountain ranges. What are the visual indicators of the existence of these waves? (graphics will add greatly to the discussion here) • Paragraph 2: Summarize the specific aviation-related effects or hazards associated with the phenomena described in paragraph 1. • Paragraph 3: You have two options for this paragraph: 1) Summarize an actual aircraft incident that illustrates the hazardous impacts of this phenomena, OR 2) Give us “your take” on the relevance and importance of the topic from your own perspective – personal points of view or related experiences, for example.
