Oceans and Weather

Teacher: Whitehead
Across
Global air circulation patterns within the atmosphere held to Earth by gravity and warmed as heat radiates from Earth; influenced by convection of warm less dense air (rises and spreads out) and cold dense air (sinks).
Amount of water vapor or moisture content in air.
Change from liquid state to gas state.
A directional movement of ocean water; surface currents result from steady winds over the ocean surface; deep currents result from density variations due to temperature and salinity differences.
A map or chart that shows the weather conditions at a specific point in time over a specific region.
An air mass with greater atmospheric pressure than the surrounding air masses; air moves away from the high pressure, traveling in a clockwise direction.
Bodies of air extending over large areas (1,000 miles or more) that develop and retain specific characteristics of pressure, temperature, and humidity.
A natural movement of air sometimes with considerable force from an area of high density and pressure to an area of low density and pressure.
An instrument that measures the amount of atmospheric pressure.

Amount of water vapor or moisture content in air.
An air mass with less atmospheric pressure than the surrounding air masses; air moves toward the low pressure, traveling in a counter-clockwise direction.
The day-to-day state of the atmosphere.
A specific set of weather conditions occurring in the lowest levels of the atmosphere reflecting the configuration of air movement.
Change from gas state to liquid state.
The force exerted by the atmosphere on Earth's surface by the weight of the air above the surface.
A large tropical weather system consisting of an extremely low pressure air mass with heavy rains and wind speeds of at least 119km/h.
Forms at the surface of Earth when a warm, moist air mass overtakes a cool , and dryer air mass.
Forms at the surface of Earth when cold, dry air mass overtakes a warmer, humid air mass.
