A mixture of gases that surrounds the Earth
This process redistributes heat towards the poles and gives the broad patterns of air movement
is where warm air rises usually bringing wet, stormy weather.
is where air sinks giving dryer, calmer conditions
The cell that drives air around tropical regions
The cell that moves air from 30 degrees to 60 degrees in the mid latitudes
Weak circulation cell that occurs between 60 and 90 degrees latitude.
steady winds in tropical latitudes that blow toward the equator from the north and south
winds that blow west to east between 30 and 60 degrees in the northern and southern hemispheres
are ceated where air sinks on the model
