Air Circulation Jeopardy “A”“B”“C”“D”“E”“F”
Changes in the polar jet stream help maintain the earth's heat budget. True or false true 2
The polar jet stream usually slows down in winter. True or false false 3
Katabatic winds have a cooling effect, and chinook winds have a warming effect. True or false true 4
Sea breezes are more likely at night, while land breezes are more likely during the day. True or false false 5
The bora and mistral are local names given to chinook winds. True of false true 6
The wind called the "norther" in Texas is really not a local wind but rather is a synoptic scale (macroscale) phenomenon. True of false true 7
The existence of jet streams was first determined by Ben Franklin as the result of his kite experiments. True or false false 8
For much of South and Southeast Asia, winter is a period characterized by relatively dry conditions. True or false true 9
A sea breeze is usually best developed early in the morning. True or false false 10
Westerly flow aloft is unrelated to the earth's rotation. True or false false 11
Jet stream winds are completely distinct from the midlatitude westerlies. True or false false 12
Seasonal changes in pressure are greater over continents than over the oceans. True or false true 13
The chinook wind has been known to cause rapid increases in temperature in the Denver, CO area. True or false true 14
The areas of abundant rainfall on the earth tend to be near the equator and in midlatitudes. 15
Why do westerly winds prevail at upper altitudes? rotation of the earth and equator to pole temperature contrast 16
Surface high pressure zones are usually associated with clear or nearly clear weather. 17
Jet streams are associated with fronts because of the large temperature gradient. 18
Most of the United States is situated in which zone of prevailing winds? westerlies 19
When are upper air winds fastest? in winter. 20
A Santa Ana (or Chinook or Foehn) wind is a: very dry, warm wind coming down a mountain slope. 21
Summertime wildfires in California are fanned by: the Santa Ana winds. 22
The dishpan experiments: revealed a wavy circulation pattern when the pan was rotated. 23
Jet streams occur at 25,000 to 40,000 feet in middle latitudes. 24
Winds are usually named for: the direction or place from which they are blowing. 25
The region where the northeast trades meet the southeast trades is known as the ITCZ. 26
The definition of the word 'monsoon' means seasonal wind shift. 27
A primary factor causing monsoon circulations is greater temperature changes over continents compared to oceans. 28
The amount of precipitation received at a given location is primarily controlled by circulation patterns in the atmosphere. 29
Chinook winds, land-sea breezes and Santa Ana winds are examples of ________ circulations. mesoscale 30
The greater strength of jet stream winds during winter is due to greater horizontal temperature contrasts. 31
Part 3. Distribution and Movement of Air Chapter 8 Atmospheric Circulation and Pressure Distributions.
Atmospheric Circulations Prof. John Toohey-Morales, CCM St. Thomas University Miami Gardens, Florida.
22.3 Atmospheric Circulation. It all starts with unequal heating of Earth that cause differences in pressure – resulting in air movement Warm air is less.
Movement of Air Chapter 14-4 California Standard 5.a. & b.
Wind and Weather. S6E4b: Relate unequal heating of land and water surfaces to form large global wind systems and weather events such as tornados and thunderstorms.
Bell work Write a poem about moving air. The poem should include an explanation of why air moves.
Why Do We Have Weather?. An Introduction Take good notes! There will be a quiz at the end of this presentation.
Global Average Barometric Pressure: January Figure 4.11.
Air Pressure and Wind. What is air pressure? The force exerted by air molecules as they collide with a surface The weight of the atmosphere as it pushes.
WHY DO WE HAVE. WHY DO WE HAVE THE WEATHER ? JUST THINK ABOUT IT! WHY IS THERE WIND? WHY DOES IT BLOW FROM ONE DIRECTION ONE DAY AND ANOTHER THE NEXT?
Ch15 Global Circulation and Weather. Weather patterns are caused by differential heating of the Earths surface, both on a local and a global scale.
1 Weather Essentials Concept Map MoistureTemperature Density / pressure Highs, lows, and fronts Wind/air motion (horizontal & vertical) Clouds Daily weather.
Chapter 7 Global-Scale Winds. Figure CO: Chapter 7, Global-Scale Winds--Jet stream from space Image courtesy of the Image Science & Analysis Laboratory,
If the number of air molecules above a surface increases, there are more molecules to exert a force on that surface and consequently, the pressure increases.
Weather-current state of the atmosphere, The Causes of Weather Climate-average weather over a long period of time (30 years or more) What we now know:
What is Climate?. Climate is the name for the general conditions of temperature and precipitation for an area over a long period of time. Climate is the.
Air Masses, Fronts and Global Wind Patterns Describe air masses and how they move. Identify types of fronts and the weather they bring.
Weather and Climate Please ensure that you have the glossary sheet each lesson and that you add to it when necessary. Learning objectives: Major Climatic.
Ch. 3 Weather and Climate lrPS2HiYVp8 lrPS2HiYVp8.
The Climates of Canada What creates different climates in Canada and what impact does climate have on human activity?
Climate Aim: What’s the difference between weather and climate?
Chapter 12: Climate Connections What goes through your mind when you think about WEATHER and CLIMATE?
Why Do We Have Weather? WHY DO WE HAVE THE WEATHER ? Just think about it! Just think about it! Why is there wind? Why does it blow from one direction.
Air Pressure High and Low Pressure Areas High pressure causes air to sink Usually results in several days of clear sunny skies Air rises in low pressure.
Weather Review. What is the difference between weather and climate? Weather: Atmosphere conditions at a given time or place Climate-Average weather conditions.
Inside Earth Unit---- Jeopardy Review Category.

It all begins with the sun……. Uneven Heating of the Earth The Earth's major source of energy is the Sun. The Earth is constantly receiving solar energy,
Essential Questions How do global patterns of atmospheric movement influence local weather? How are weather maps used to identify global patterns of atmospheric.
