Step One:

Label your foldable as shown on the right

Step Two:

Write your name and class period on the back of your foldable.

Is temperature effected by how close you live to the equator?

1. Caused by unequal heating of earth’s surface equator?

2. Low pressure = warm, moist air

→ rises & forms clouds → storms

3. High pressure = cold, dry air

→ sinks → stable and clear weather

C ontinental location
C equator?ontinental Location

Continental Location

Oceans are solar energy collectors

because water heats & cools more slowly

than land…

1. Coastline has a stable temperature

2. Interior of continent has extreme

temperatures (hotter & colder).

O cean currents
O equator?cean Currents

Ocean Currents

1. Giant rivers of sea water flowing at surface of

oceans

2. Flow in circular paths:

Warm currents carry water from low → high

latitudes,

Cool currents return cooled water from high →

low latitudes.


Doodle It equator?

Find a space in your foldable under Continental Location or Ocean Currents. Draw a new picture to represent what you have learned.

Wind belts

“Wind” = movement of air from high pressure to

low pressure (ex: poke a hole in a tire)

Trade Winds: high P (30°) → low P (0°)

Westerlies: high P (30°) → low P (60°) carry

weather across U.S. from west → east

Polar winds: → bring cold air from poles

(90° → 60°)


S torms
S equator?torms

Storms

Occur during low pressure conditions.

Storm front = when two air masses with

different temperatures meet.

1. Thunderstorms:

Fronts & high pressure areas along equator

2. Tornadoes – formed along fronts

3. Tropical storms (hurricanes) – formed in

oceans
