As water is heated by the sun, it becomes less dense and rises. What causes the decrease in the density of warming water?
At night, the air is usually cooler than it is during the day. Which term is best defined as a measure of how hot or cold something is?
During the day, the portions of Earth’s surface that receive sunlight absorb energy in the form of heat. During the night, Earth’s surface radiates this energy back into space. What is the main form of radiation released by Earth at night?
Different areas of Earth’s oceans receive different amounts of energy in the form of heat, resulting in ocean currents and weather patterns. What is the main source of this energy?
