can it rain fish?

no

100
what does melting mean in rock stages?

it gets hot melting the rock into magma

100

what is cumulus cloud?

detached, individual, cauliflower-shaped clouds usually spotted in fair weather conditions.

100

The Geologic Time Scale is a record of what?

the known history of rocks and fossils

100

Is climate change caused by humans?

yes

200

how do clouds fill up with water?

water droplets

200

How does sedimentary rock change into igneous rock?

If a sedimentary rock is subjected to intense heat it will melt. Once it rises up and cools down, it will form an igneous rock

200

what is cumulonimbus cloud? 

cloud forming a towering mass with a flat base at fairly low altitude and often a flat top, as in thunderstorms.

200

How old do Paleontologists believe the Earth is?

4.6 billion years old

What exactly is “climate change”?

Climate change refers to long-term shifts in temperatures and weather patterns. These shifts may be natural, but since the 1800s, human activities have been the main driver of climate change, primarily due to the burning of fossil fuels (like coal, oil, and gas) which produces heat-trapping gases.

300

 does air contain only water vapor or other vapors?

air particle contain many different types of vapor 

300

A type of rock that formed from melted rock and has cooled then solidified?

Igneous rocks

300

what is a cirrus cloud?

wispy with white strands

300

Paleozoic, Mesozoic & Cenozoic are all

eras

300

How is climate change affecting the planet right now?

More frequent and intense drought, storms, heat waves, rising sea levels, melting glaciers and warming oceans can directly harm animals, destroy the places they live, and wreak havoc on people's livelihoods and communities. As climate change worsens, dangerous weather events are becoming more frequent or severe.

400

can lighting strike in the same plave twice?

yes it can

400

The rock cycle has a definitive beginning and end. a. True b. False

false

400

what is a stratus cloud?

Stratus clouds form in calm, stable conditions when gentle breezes raise cool, moist air over colder land or ocean surfaces.

400

Which is the most recent era of time- the one that we are currently in?

Cenozoic

400

How is climate change affecting farms and our food?

Climate change can disrupt food availability, reduce access to food, and affect food quality. For example, projected increases in temperatures, changes in precipitation patterns, changes in extreme weather events, and reductions in water availability may all result in reduced agricultural productivity.
500

what makes rain drops tear shaped?

they arent

500

What type of rock forms from the cooling of molten rock at or below the surface?

Igneous rocks

500

what is altostratus cloud?

Altostratus is a middle-altitude cloud genus made up of water droplets, ice crystals, or a mixture of the two.

500

True or False: Geologists subdivide periods into eras.

false

500

How is climate change affecting the ocean?

Today, the ocean has absorbed about 90 percent of the heat generated by rising emissions. As the excessive heat and energy warms the ocean, the change in temperature leads to unparalleled cascading effects, including ice-melting, sea-level rise, marine heatwaves, and ocean acidification.
