Global Winds

Global winds are the dominant wind patterns that blow at a steady pace in the same directions on Earth.
These winds are found all over the Earth in each of the three hemispheres.

Global Convection Currents

Global convection currents temperature differences between the equator and the poles produce giant convection currents in the atmosphere
They are found all around the equator

CORIOLIS effect

The Coriolis effect is a deflection of moving objects when they are viewed in a rotating reference frame.
It is found in the Northern Hemisphere

Global Wind Belts

Winds that move over the world constantly.

Doldrums

The area of the equator with no wind

Horse Latitudes

A belt of calm air and sea occurring in both the northern and southern hemispheres between the trade winds and the westerlies.

Trade winds

The trade winds are the prevailing pattern of easterly surface winds found in the tropics, within the lower portion of the Earth's atmosphere, in the lower section of the troposphere near the Earth's equator.

Prevailing Westerlies

Prevailing westerlies, are prevailing winds from the west toward the east in the middle latitudes between 30 and 60 degrees latitude.

POlar Easterlies

Prevailing westerlies, are prevailing winds from the west toward the east in the middle latitudes between 30 and 60 degrees latitude.

Jet Streams

They are found 10km above the surface of the Earth.
They are fast moving air currents.
