  4. Polar easterlies
  5. land breeze
  1. a low pressure
  2. b 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
  3. c the measure of the force with which air molecules push on a surface
  4. d sinks
  5. e wind belts that extend from the poles to 60 degrees latitude in both hemispheres

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. more dense
  2. Winds that blow steadily from specific directions over long distances and caused by uneven heating of the earth which creates pressure differences
  3. prevailing westerlies
  4. low pressure
  5. 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

5 True/False questions

  1. the type of air pressure found at 60 degrees North and South latitudelow pressure


  2. latitudeair moving from an area of high pressure to an area of low pressure


  3. What causes windthe unequal heating of the earth's surface causes differences in air pressure that results in wind


  4. horse latitudesregions of high pressure and gentle winds at about 30 degrees north and south latitude.


  5. the warm air at the equator is ________ dense than colder air found at the polesmore dense
