  • Fill out planner for the week
  • Check
    • Artificial Reefs
    • El Nino
    • Review part 2
  • Review activity for tomorrows CBA!!!
which of the following is an el ni o weather pattern
Which of the following is an El Niño weather pattern?

Which picture has the normal upwelling that brings up the deep, nutrient rich water to the surface?

1

El Niño

Winds blow east  instead of west

Why does the surface current switch directions in an El Niño year?

2

Normal Upwelling

what type of pressure system forms a hurricane
What type of pressure system forms a Hurricane?
  • Low Pressure

When do Hurricanes form?

  • Summer & Fall

Why do they occur then?

  • Atlantic Ocean is so warm that water evaporates very quickly
  • -Forming HUGE Clouds as it sucks water up while it slowly moves across from Africa to the United States
which terms best describe the air mass that forms a hurricane
Which terms best describe the air mass that forms a Hurricane?
  • Continental tropical
  • Continental polar
  • Maritime tropical
  • Maritime polar
why do hurricanes fall apart
Why do hurricanes fall apart?
  • Move over colder water (not able to evaporate as fast)
  • Or
  • Move over land (no water to evaporate)
what type of energy is responsible for the different temperatures on the earth
What type of energy is responsible for the different temperatures on the Earth?
  • Radiant Energy from our SUN
does warm or cold air masses have more density
Does warm or cold air masses have more density?

Which is warm & which is cold?

  • Cold

ColdWarm

Which will exert more air pressure, warm or cold air masses? Why?

  • Cold
  • Denser – more air molecules pushing outward
the movement of air from one area to another is called
The movement of air from one area to another is called __.
  • Wind

What is the root cause of wind?

  • Differences in Air pressure caused by the
  • Uneven heating of the earth!
  • The sun heats the Equatorial regions more (due to direct sunlight)
  • The poles are colder (due to indirect sun)
slide10

If cold air has more pressure than warm air, in general, what direction does air move on the earth?

  • From the poles (where it is cold/dense) towards the equator where it is warm.
what type of breeze is this
What type of Breeze is this?

Sea Breeze.

How do the temperatures at 1 and 7 compare? How do you know?

Warmer at 1 - warm air is rises

Colder at 7 - cold air is sinks.

The rising of warm air and falling of cold air is a type of heat called _____________

Convection

slide12

Identify all the fronts &

weather associated with each.

Warm Front– Drizzly Rain followed by warmer temps.

Occluded Front–

Large amounts of precipitation & cooler

temperatures

A

D

Atlantic City

B

San Francisco

Colorado Springs

Cold Front–Stormy weather

followed by cooler

weather

Knoxville

Dallas

Stationary Front–

Drizzly Rain that lasts for days

Atlantic City

San Francisco

Warm Gulf Stream Surface Current

Colorado Springs

slide20

Between San Francisco, Dallas, & Atlantic City which city will have:

-The biggest temperature differences. Why?

-The coolest summers? Why?

-The warmest winters? Why?

Warmest Winters – Atlantic City – On Warm Current

Cool Summers = San Francisco – On Cold Current

Atlantic City

San Francisco

Big temp Differences =Dallas – Continental Climate

Dallas
