A Quiz About Fronts And Air Masses

A stable atmosphere, in which high winds are absent, is also necessary for the formation of an air mass. Colder air masses are termed polar or arctic, while warmer air masses are deemed tropical. Weather fronts separate air masses with different density characteristics. Take up the quiz below and get to know just how much you understood the topic on air. All the best and keep on revising.
