To determine

The way in which a green, shady valley floor and a bare, rocky mountain slope contribute to the changes given in the accompanying figure.

Explanation

Under the soothing effect of a high pressure system in the mountainous regions, a diurnal mountain breeze-valley breeze cycle is likely to occur. The high mountain slope would be heated by the sun during the daytime at a faster rate compared to that of the valleys shaded by the mountains.

The air from the valley is drawn up the mountain slopes as the warm air of the higher elevations expands and ascends up. Such warm breeze that occurs during the daytime is known as the valley breeze (named after its source region).

The clouds that are usually over the peaks of mountain are the perceptible proof of condensation taking place in the air as it ascends from the valleys...
