    1. ATMOSPHEREAIR MOVEMENT DEFINE: CORIOLIS EFFECT JET STREAM SEA BREEZE LAND BREEZE

    2. ATMOSPHEREAIR MOVEMENT SEQUENCE HOW HEATED AIR AND THE CORIOLIS EFFECT FORM WINDS • THE EQUATOR RECEIVES___________________________________________ 2. AS A RESULT, AIR NEAR THE EQUATOR IS _____________________________ _____________________________________________________________________ 3. DENSE AIR MOVES FROM_____________________________________________ _______________________________________________________________________ 4. THE ROTATION OF EARTH CAUSES _____________________________________ _______________________________________________________________________ 5. THUS, THE CORIOLIS EFFECT CAUSES___________________________________

    3. ATMOSPHEREAIR MOVEMENT COMPLETE • Caused by the uneven heating of Earth and its atmosphere. • Imaginary line around the middle of Earth. • Windless zone at the equator which sailing vessels try to avoid. • Winds generally responsible for the movement of weather across the United States and Canada. • Wind that provide a dependable route for trade. • Cool breezes during the day caused by differences in heating and cooling rates of land and water. • Narrow belts of strong winds at high altitudes which blow near the top of the troposphere. • Cool breezes at night cause by differences in heating and cooling rates of land and water. • Heat from the sun. • The deflection of air masses resulting from Earth’s eastward rotation. • Winds that blow from the North and South Poles
