the current state of the atmosphere
the study of atmospheric pressure
the average of weather over the coarse of many years
the curving of the path of a moving object from an otherwise straight path due to earth's rotation
narrow air currents that flow quickly through the amosphere
prevailing winds that blow from east to west between 60 degrees to 90 degrees latitude in both hemispheres
prevailing winds that blow from 30 degrees and 60 degrees latitude some of the desending air moving toward the poles is deflected by the coriolis effect
prevailing winds that blow from 30 degrees to 0 degrees in both hemispheres that blow from east to west
trade wind system of the northern and southern hemisphere meet at the equator in a narrow zone
a large body of air that takes on the characteristics of the area over which it forms
is formed when the land surface cools down faster than the water surface
is formed by water heating up slower than the land
the transition zone where a warm air mass is replacing a cold air mass
a zone seperating two air masses of which the cooler, denser mass is advancing and replacing the warmer air
is the boundary between two air masses that neither of which is replacing
occurs when a cold front eventually cathches up to warm front and collide to form
high pressure system
region when the atmospheric pressure and the surface is greater than the enviroment
low pressure system
is when the barometric pressure is lower than the surrounding area
