Movement of Air Chapter 14-4 Pages
Wind Formation Temperature differences on Earth’s surface are caused by: Tilt of Earth It’s orbit around the sun Earth’s curved surface
Coriolis Effect Rotation of the Earth deflects air and water to the right (north of the equator), and left (south of the equator). Earth rotates toward the east, thus creating distinct wind pattern.
Wind is movement of air from an area of high pressure to low pressureWarm air comes from equator Cold air comes from poles
Land Breeze Breeze moves from land to sea Occurs at nightCold air over land sinks and pushes warm air out to sea
Sea Breeze Breeze moves from sea to land Occurs in the daytimeCool air from sea moves toward land and forces warm air over land to rise

Global and Local Winds.
Aim: What are some of Earth’s wind patterns? I. Winds and Pressure Belts A. Convection cell – when air circulates by rising in one place and sinking at.
Wind and Ocean Currents Global winds Ocean Currents Local winds.
What causes wind? The uneven heating of Earth’s surface by the sun causes temperature differences in air. Warm air rises, creating areas of low pressure.

Chapter 2 Weather Factors Section 3 Winds. What causes wind? Wind: The horizontal movement of air from an area of high pressure to an area of lower pressure.
Energy Transfer in the Atmosphere A.Some energy from the sun is reflected back into space, some is absorbed by the atmosphere, and some is absorbed by.

Chapter 6 Lesson 2. What is Wind? Air moves from areas of high pressure to areas of low pressure. Latitude – measure of how far north or south a place.
Ch Winds. Low air pressure at the equator, due to the constant rising of heated air. Low air pressure at the equator, due to the constant rising.
15-3 Atmospheric Pressure and Winds pgs IN: What causes winds?
Wind & Climate Wind – the horizontal movement of air. Low pressure – warm air rising. High pressure – cold air falling. Winds always blow from high pressure.
