QFD: “Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple.” ― Dr. Seuss
?FD: Name the layers of the atmosphere from the ground upward and 1 feature of them
Objective 5. Heating of Earth’s surface and atmosphere by the sun drives convection within the atmosphere and oceans, producing winds and ocean currents. As a basis for understanding this concept:
a. Students know how differential heating of Earth results in circulation patterns in the atmosphere and oceans that globally distribute the heat.
b. Students know the relationship between the rotation of Earth and the circular motions of ocean currents and air in pressure centers.
