Which statements are true about atmospheric circulation patterns?
Wind is another name for atmospheric circulation patterns.
Atmospheric circulation patterns keep the temperature of an area constant.
Atmospheric circulation patterns are often responsible for hurricanes.
Wind that moves from west to east is called a westerly.
Air circulation patterns generally follow a straight line.
easily across the plains.
Atmospheric circulation is the large-scale movement of air, [ [ and the means (together with the smaller ocean circulation) by which thermal energy is distributed on the surface of the Earth.The wind belts and the jet streams girdling the planet are steered by three convection cells: the Hadley cell, the Ferrel cell, and the Polar cell.
While the Hadley, Ferrel, and Polar cells are major
players in global heat transport, they do not act alone.
Disparities in temperature also drive a set of longitudinal circulation cells, and the overall atmospheric motion is known as the zonal overturning circulation. ] ]
