4 Matching questions

  1. type of air pressure at the horse latitudes
  2. global wind
  3. sea breeze
  4. warm air is less dense and
  1. a rises
  2. b movement of air from sea to land during the day when cooler air from above the water moves over the land, forcing the heated, less dense air above the land to rise
  3. c high pressure
  4. d Winds that blow steadily from specific directions over long distances and caused by uneven heating of the earth which creates pressure differences

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. movement of air from land to sea at night, created when cooler, denser air (high pressure) from the land moves out to sea to replace warmer rising air (low pressure) over the sea
  2. Prevailing winds that blow northeast from 30 degrees north latitude to the equator and that blow southeast from 30 degrees south latitude to the equator
  3. the unequal heating of the earth's surface causes differences in air pressure that results in wind
  4. faster
  5. low pressure

5 True/False questions

  1. Number of global wind types in Northern hemisphere3 - trade winds, westerlies, polar easterlies


  2. type of air pressure found at the doldrumslow pressure


  3. Polar easterlieswind belts that extend from the poles to 60 degrees latitude in both hemispheres


  4. during the night, land cools ___________ than waterfaster


  5. jet streama narrow belt of strong winds that blow in the upper troposphere and directs storms in the United States
