Atmospheric Circulation Diagram
OCE1001 Chapter 6. The large atmospheric circulation cells that occur between the equator and 30° latitude in each hemisphere are called Hadley cells.
Atmospheric Circulation. Atmospheric and Oceanic Circulation Draw a diagram of the global pattern of wind and pressure from the equator to the poles. Do this on a separate piece of paper. 5. Explain how the monsoon circulation works. 6. Explain how cold and warm ocean currents are created.
Atmospheric circulation cells. At the equator, the air rises up, because of strong heating by the sun. At the tropopause (temperature inversion in about 18km above ground), the air masses will deflect to the North and South. Through area correction, the air masses slide down to the poles.
The names of the cells are shown in the diagram. Global atmospheric circulation creates winds across the planet and leads to areas of high rainfall, like the tropical rainforests, and areas of dry
Global circulation on our rotating Earth splits the atmosphere into three cells in each hemisphere: the Hadley cell, Ferrel cell and Polar cell. In this vide
