iFact #47 - Extensive List of Weather Terms - Weather Related Terminology / Jargon
This list of weather and weather-related terms is very extensive; therefore we have divided it into managable sections - six in total. They have been spread out over the weather sound effects pages. If you wish to follow this article on weather terms and terminology information the links below will help make navigation easier. Alternatively, the weather terms and information list follows the weather sound effects pages, for example, page one of weather sound effects also holds part one of the weather terminology list, page two has part two and so on and so forth.

Inclination of the Axis
The tilt of Earth’s axis from the per- pendicular to the plane of Earth’s orbit (plane of the ediptic). Currently, the inclination is about 23 1/2° away from the perpendicular.
A mirage in which the image appears below the true location of the object.
with a wavelength from 0.7 to 200 micrometers.
Occurs when light rays of different frequencies (i.e., colors) meet. Such interference results in the cancellation or subtraction of some frequencies, which is responsible for the colors associated with coronas.
Internal Reflection Occurs when light that is traveling through a transparent material, such as water reaches the opposite surface and is reflected back into the material. This is an important factor in the formation of such optical phenomena as rainbows.
Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ)
The zone of general convergence between the Northern and Southern Hemisphere trade winds. Ionosphere
A complex atmospheric zone of ionized gases extending between 80 and 400 kilometers, thus coinciding with the lower thermosphere and heterosphere.
Isobar - A line drawn on a map connecting points of equal barometric pressure, usually corrected to sea level.
A line connecting places having equal rainfall.
A line connecting points of equal air temperature. ITCZ See Intertropical Convergence Zone.
Swift geostrophic airstreams in the upper troposphere that meander in relatively narrow belts.
An almost impenetrable growth oftangle vines, shrubs, and short trees characterizing areas where the tropical rain forest has been cleared.
The flow of cold, dense air downslope under the influence of gravity; the direction of flow is controlled largely by topography.
A temperature scale (also called the absolute scale) used primarily for scientific purposes and having intervals equivalent to those on the Celsius scale but beginning at absolute zero.
Koppen Classification - Devised by Wladimir Koppen, a system for classifying climates that is based on mean monthly and annual values of temperature and precipitation.
Snow showers associated with a cP air mass to which moisture and heat are added from below as it traverses a large and relatively warm lake (such as one of the Great Lakes), rendering the air mass humid and unstable.
A local wind blowing from the land toward the sea during the night in coastal areas.
An episode of strong trade winds and unusually low sea—surface temperatures in the central and eastern Pacific. The opposite of El Niflo.
See Environmental Lapse Rate; Normal Lapse Rate.
The energy absorbed or released during a change of state.
Law of Conservation of Angular Momentum
The product of the velocity of an object around a center of rotation (axis) and the distance of the object from the axis is constant.
The conductive path of ionized air that forms near a cloud base prior to a lightning stroke. The initial conductive path is referred to as a step leader because it extends itself earthward in short, nearly invisible bursts. A dart leader, which is continuous and less branched than a step leader, precedes each subsequent stroke along the same path.
Lifting Condensation Level
The height at which rising air that is cooling at the dry adiabatic rate becomes saturated and condensation begins.
A sudden flash of light generated by the flow of electrons between oppositely charged parts of a cumulonimbus cloud or between the cloud and the ground.
A device for measuring temperature that consists of a tube with a liquid-filled bulb at one end. The expansion or contraction of the fluid indicates temperature.
Rigid outer layer of Earth that includes the crust and uppermost part of the mantle.
