What general pattern of winds near the equator

Answers

The region of Earth receiving the Sun's direct rays is the equator. Here, air is heated and rises, leaving low pressure areas behind. Moving to about thirty degrees north and south of the equator, the warm air from the equator begins to cool and sink. Between thirty degrees latitude and the equator, most of the cooling sinking air moves back to the equator. The rest of the air flows toward the poles. The air movements toward the equator are called trade winds- warm, steady breezes that blow almost continuously. The Coriolis Effect makes the trade winds appear to be curving to the west, whether they are traveling to the equator from the south or north. The trade winds coming from the south and the north meet near the equator. These converging trade winds produce general upward winds as they are heated, so there are no steady surface winds. This area of calm is called the doldrums. Between thirty and sixty degrees latitude, the winds that move toward the poles appear to curve to the east. Because winds are named from the direction in which they originate, these winds are called prevailing westerlies. Prevailing westerlies in the Northern Hemisphere are responsible for many of the weather movements across the United States and Canada.(: hope i helped

Answers

Answer:

Answer:

1. Atlas - Collection of maps

2. GIS  - Best tool to use to plan hurricane evacuation routes

3. Globe  - Best tool to use to compare the size of the continents

4. GPS  - Best tool to use to pinpoint your exact location

5. Mercator projection  - Areas near the poles appear larger than they are

6. Political map  - Best tool to use to locate the boundaries between countries

7. RADAR  - Used by cartographers when visibility is reduced

8. Relief map  - Colors show the earth's features

9. Topographical map  - Elevation is indicated by the distance between lines

10. Winkel Tripel projection  - Reduces distortion of distance, direction, and area

Explanation:

To complete this activity we need to understand the concepts of each of the geographical tools given

1. Atlas -  An Atlas is a collection of maps of Earth, or a region of Earth. They present geographic features, political boundaries, and often geopolitical, social, religious and economic statistics.

2. GIS  - Stands for Geographic Information System or Science, is a computer system for gathering, managing and analyzing spatial or geographic data. It can show many different kinds of data on one map, such as streets, buildings, vegetation, etc. Which allows people to see more easily, analyze and understand patterns and relationships, helping users make smarter decisions.

3. Globe  - It is a spherical model of Earth or celestial body. Globes do not distort the surface that they represent, only to scale it down, but the proportions remain faithful.

4. GPS  - stands for Global Positioning System, and is global navigation satellite system which provides geolocation and time information to a receiver anywhere on earth. The GPS provides critical positioning capabilities to anyone with a GPS receiver.

5. Mercator projection -It is a cylindrical map projection which became the standard map projection for navigation as it represents any course as a straight segment. The Mercator projection inflates the size of objects away from the equator, and shows objects far larger than they actually are as they get closer to the poles.

6. Political map  - Political maps are designed to show the boundaries of countries, states, the location of major cities. Different colours are often used to differentiate between nations.

7. RADAR - It is a detection system using radio waves to determine the range, angle and speed of objects. It's often used to detect aircraft, ships, spacecraft, missiles, weather formations and terrain. In navigation it's often used to identify obstacles in the route when there is low visibility.

8. Relief map - It is a three-dimensional representation usually of terrain. The layers of the terrain are overlaid with a color map to make it more realistic

9. Topographical map  - Is a map that shows in large scale a representation of relief, using contour lines. A contour line is a line connecting places of equal elevation.

10. Winkel Tripel projection  - It is a map projection of the world which minimizes three kinds of distortion: area, direction and distance. The equator and the poles are straight lines, while all other parallels are curved.

Answer:

1. Atlas:collection of maps

2. Gis: best tool to plan huricane evacuation plans

3:Globe: best tool to compare the size of the continents

4. Gps: best tool to pinpoint your exact location

5. Mercater Projection: areas near the poles appear larger then they are

6.Political map: best tool to locate the boundaries between countries.

7. RADAR: best tool to use when visibility is reduced

8. Relief map: colors show the Earth's features

9.Topographical maps: Elevation is indicated by the distance between lines

10: Winkel Tripel projection: reduces distortion of distance, direction, and area

A few scientists say global warming is largely due to a natural cycle. What is some evidence of the natural cycle? A. Humans have lived in areas with extreme temperature ranges.

B. Humans once settled in areas now covered by glaciers.

C. Humans have farmed in certain areas for centuries.

D. Humans have long settled in areas with tropical climates.

Answers

Answer:

Scientists say global warming is largely due to a natural cycle it is evident from the fact that humans once settled in areas now covered by glaciers.

Explanation:

  • It is seen on the geological timescale that the Earth has had five major ice ages that occurred as a result of tremendous changes in the climate from time to time.
  • It is now believed that another ice age is due and the climate change that we are getting to experience is an indication that the ice age about to occur soon.
  • Thus, a few scientists sat that global warming is largely due to a natural cycle.

Answer:

Humans once settled in areas now covered by glaciers.

A country in Africa is experiencing a long period of time with no rainfall. Which of the following events is most likely to occur as crops begin to die? A. an earthquake B. a flood C. a famine D. a hurricane Please select the best answer from the choices provided A B C D

Answers

Answer:

C. a famine

Explanation:

  • As the African countries don't generally have adequate rainfall they don't have proper crop yield and thus have more chances of famines and thus the long period of no rainfall is found to produce the rapid drying of the landmasses and hence as a result of this, the crops are going to die.
  • Hense a draught type of condition is going to be created and this will definitely impact the food supply of the areas as the land production capacity gets declined.
  • Also, the continent of Africa has faced certain crop failures in the past and the overpopulation and overgrazing in the lands caused a greater chance of erosion and thus leading to these food shortages.
It is C because a Famine is an extreme scarcity of food.
