Isotherm

Science / Weather / Isotherm: The line of equal or constant air temperature. If something is isothermal, it is of equal or constant temperature with respect to either time or space.

Isothermal

Science / Chemistry / Isothermal: Having constant temperature. MORE

Polar Jet

Science / Weather / Polar Jet: Marked by a concentration of isotherms and strong vertical shear, this jet is the boundary between the polar air and the subtropical air. It often divides into two branches, the north and the south, a MORE

Jet Stream

Science / Weather / Jet Stream: An area of strong winds that are concentrated in a relatively narrow band in the upper troposphere of the middle latitudes and subtropical regions of the Northern and Southern Hemispheres. Flowing in MORE

Boyles Law

Science / Chemistry / Boyles Law: The pressure of a ideal gas is inversely proportional to its volume, if the temperature and amount of gas is held constant. Doubling gas pressure halves gas volume, if temperature and amount of gas do MORE

Thermosteric Anomaly

Science / Tides and Currents / Thermosteric Anomaly: The specific volume anomaly (steric anomaly) that would be attained if the water were changed isothermally to a standard pressure of one atmosphere. The specific volume anomaly with pressure terms omi MORE

Subtropical Jet

Science / Weather / Subtropical Jet: Marked by a concentration of isotherms and vertical shear, this jet is the boundary between the subtropical air and the tropical air. It is found approximately between 25° and 35° North latitude and MORE
