  1. Meteorology General Facts

  2. What do you call specific atmospheric conditions at a particular place at a given time? • Given the picture below, is it safe to say that the polar regions receive more direct sunlight than the equatorial regions? (yes, no)

  3. 1. Weather

  4. What do you call specific atmospheric conditions at a particular place at a given time? • Given the picture below, is it safe to say that the polar regions receive more direct sunlight than the equatorial regions? (yes, no)

  5. 2. no

  6. Why does the wind blow? (storms make wind, gravity differences, waves, uneven heating) • What causes moving objects in the Northern Hemisphere to turn right? • The Answer in #4 occurs due to Earth’s (gravity, distance from the Sun, rotation, tides) • A low pressure system rotates (clockwise, counterclockwise) • All storms are (high, low) pressure systems.

  7. 3. Uneven heating

  8. Why does the wind blow? (storms make wind, gravity differences, waves, uneven heating) • What causes moving objects in the Northern Hemisphere to turn right? • The Answer in #4 occurs due to Earth’s (gravity, distance from the Sun, rotation, tides) • A low pressure system rotates (clockwise, counterclockwise) • All storms are (high, low) pressure systems.

  9. 4. Coriolis Effect

  10. Why does the wind blow? (storms make wind, gravity differences, waves, uneven heating) • What causes moving objects in the Northern Hemisphere to turn right? • The Answer in #4 occurs due to Earth’s (gravity, distance from the Sun, rotation, tides) • A low pressure system rotates (clockwise, counterclockwise) • All storms are (high, low) pressure systems.

  11. 5. rotation

  13. 6. Counterclockwise

  14. Why does the wind blow?
