The greenhouse effect is the trapping of heat in the Earth's atmosphere by certain gases, such as carbon dioxide and water vapor, leading to an increase in temperatures.

What’s the air circulation pattern around a cyclone and anticyclone?
Weegy: A Tropical Cyclone is produced by a large low pressure center, and numerous thunderstorms. They feed on heat released when moist air rises. Which results in condensation of water vapor contained in the moist air. User: What’s the air circulation pattern around a anticyclone (More)

What kind of air do we find beneath each pressure system?
Weegy: An area of relative pressure maximum that has diverging winds and a rotation opposite to the earth's rotation. This is clockwise the in Northern Hemisphere and counterclockwise in the Southern Hemisphere. [ It is the opposite of an area of low pressure or a cyclone. An area of a relative pressure minimum that has converging winds and rotates in the same direction as the earth. This is counterclockwise in the Northern Hemisphere and clockwise in the Southern Hemisphere. Also known as an cyclone, it is the opposite of an area of high pressure, or a anticyclone. Related terms: closed low, cold low, and cut-off low. ] (More)

Beneath a high-pressure system, we typically find descending air, which leads to clear skies and stable weather conditions. Under a low-pressure system, we find rising air, often resulting in cloud formation and unsettled weather.

How is California affected by the latitudinal seasonal shift in the pacific High?
Weegy: The California Current system is the eastern expression of the North Pacific subtropical gyre (Fig. 2). [ It carries cold, relatively fresh surface water out of the subarctic North Pacific and mixes it into warmer more saline water of the subtropical and tropical regions. The northern edge of the Leg 167 California margin drilling is roughly aligned with the modern position of the northern edge of the North Pacific subtropical gyre. Here the North Pacific Current flows across the Pacific, separating the cold nutrient-rich waters of the subarctic Alaska Gyre from the warm nutrient-depleted waters to the south. The southern Leg 167 drill sites reach into the southern reaches of the California current to permit latitudinal study of changes in strength of the California Current through time. ] (More)

The latitudinal seasonal shift in the Pacific High affects California's weather patterns, fire risk, agriculture, and water supply. During the summer, the shift northward causes warmer and drier conditions, while in the winter, the shift southward can bring wetter and cooler conditions. This shift can also impact crop yields and California's water supply, depending on the amount of precipitation.

Temperature vary between maritime and continental locations because: The temperature of offshore currents affect nearby land areas. A maritime climate is less extreme than a continental climate because the ocean moderates temperatures.
