When a place is completely surrounded by to water.

land. (landlocked) and away from water!

St. Louis is hotter than Houston in the Summer

Experiment: Bucket of sand vs. a bucket of water. Which one will heat up quicker and will have a higher temperature?


Gulf stream

O = Ocean Currents to water.

  • Warm water moves away from the equator

    Cold water moves away from the poles

Gulf Stream

North Atlantic Drift


W winds pressure and prevailing winds

  • High pressure is heavy, cold air to water.

  • Low pressure is light, warm air.

  • Heat rises- cool falls convection!!

  • Prevailing winds- consistent pressures and winds

W = Winds – pressure and prevailing winds


S storms

S = Storms


S to water.- Storms. Seasonal storms will greatly influence the climate of a place.

Hurricanes- Atlantic O, Gulf of Mexico

Typhoons- Pacific O.

Cyclones- Indian O.

Monsoons- the seasonal shift in winds that affect South Asia.
