Understanding Atmospheric Circulation Patterns // Published on Apr 10, 2017
I teach you how (the layperson, or not) to draw the atmospheric circulation patterns of the Earth. All you need to know is that “hot air rises”, there are 3 main cells, and moving objects north of the equator turn to the right (opposite in the south).
With this knowledge in your “toolkit”, you can better understand how the jet streams form, and how they change as the Arctic rapidly warms.
Patterns in Global Ocean Currents & Changes // Published on Apr 12, 2017
Draw a MAP of Earth from memory. Practice until it is somewhat recognizable. On this map, I teach you how to draw the ocean currents around the planet, including surface water flows and seafloor flows.
All you need to remember is that movement is deflected to the right in the northern hemisphere; opposite in the south. Also, that the Gulf Stream flows NE off the US east coast. Everything else flows naturally, including the location of the 5 main ocean gyres. I discuss how climate is changing these patterns.
