DIFFERENCES IN AIR PRESSURE

UNEQUAL HEATING OF AIR

slide3

LOCALWINDS

LAND BREEZE

SEA BREEZE

MONSOON

slide4

MONSOONS

SEASONAL WINDS

CARRIES WARM MOIST AIR

slide5

GLOBAL WINDS

UNEQUAL HEATING

EQUALS

GLOBAL PATTERN OF AIR

CIRCULATION

slide6

CORIOLIS EFFECT

SHIFT IN WIND DIRECTION DUE TO EARTH’S ROTATION

slide8

As air moves from high to low pressure in the northern hemisphere, it is deflected to the right by the Coriolis force. In the southern hemisphere, air moving from high to low pressure is deflected to the left by the Coriolis force.

slide11

DOLDRUMS

CALM SURFACE WINDS AT EQUATOR (0 degrees latitude)

slide12

TRADE WINDS

AIR MOVING BACK TO THE EQUATOR FORMING A BELT OF WARM, STEADY WINDS

slide13

HORSE LATITUDES

30 degrees North and South of Equator

Warm air cools and sink; clear skies; winds are calm

slide14

PREVAILING WESTERLIES

40-60 degrees Latitude (West to East)

Strong Winds

slide15

POLAR EASTERLIES

COLDBUT WEAK WINDS EAST TO WEST

slide16

JETSTREAMS

“rivers of air"

ABOVE 12 KMS

180-350 Km/Hr (speed)
