Warm up 9

Warm Up # 9 ¾

  • What are the four major limiting factors in an open ocean biome?

  • As you get deeper in an open ocean, what happens to the:

    • Nutrients

    • Sunlight

    • Temperature

    • Oxygen

  • Describe the intertidal zone biome. How are certain species able to live there (how do they adapt)?

Air patterns

Air Patterns

  • Warm air rises, cold air falls

  • hot and cold air mix = temperature inversion

    • Storms, tornadoes, Marine Layer

  • Warm Front – rush of warm air under cold air

    • Result: Storms (inversion)


Air pressure and extreme weather

Air Pressure and Extreme Weather

Pressure: Air likes HIGH to LOW

  • Low  High = storms

  • High  Low = clear sky

    Warm water + warm wind:

  • Hurricanes – Atlantic

  • Typhoons – Pacific


Relating heat and humidity

Relating Heat and Humidity

  • Humidity = moisture in air (oceans)

LOW PRESSURE

HIGH PRESSURE

Moisture leaves (rain)

COOL, DRY AIR

COLD, MOIST AIR (RAIN)

Cool air falls, warms

Warm air rises, cools

Moisture absorbed (ocean)

WARM, DRY AIR

HOT, WET AIR

LOW PRESSURE

HIGH PRESSURE

DRY SIDE

HUMIDITY SIDE

Ferrel and Polar = Warm Moist Air RISING  BOREAL FOREST

Hadley and Ferrel= Cold, Dry Air FALLING  DESERT

Hadley and Hadley =

Warm Moist Air RISING  TROPICAL FOREST

Other Related Info

Ozone Layer/Thermal Cap

  • Keeps heat in, keeps UV rays out

    Rain Shadow Effect

  • one side of mountain = moist

  • other side of mountain = dry

    Upwelling

  • Cycles nutrients/cold water up

  • El Nino – less upwelling/warmer waters
