Catastrophic Events 20010-2011 Mr. Johnson, Science
CE 1 What is an example of a catastrophic event? When and where do they occur? How are humans affected by these events?
CE 2 Explain what you know about causes and effects of Thunderstorms, Tornadoes, and a Hurricanes. Provide details such as common locations, size, speed, and how they are measured.
CE 3 Explain how the different surfaces on the earth absorb the sun’s energy. Describe the heat transfer from the surface to the atmosphere. Be specific in how that heat energy remains in the atmosphere. Use science terminology when ever you can.
CE 4 How does the temperature of the earths surface affect the density of air above it? Draw a picture, label and explain how the air moves between warm and cool land surfaces. (Hint: Use the convection tube drawing you made to help answer this question.)
CE 5 Use words, pictures, and labels to explain how convection currents work to move air masses. Use any of the following to support your answer - Warm fronts, cold fronts, global currents, wind, land breeze & sea breeze.
