SPRING 2008---INTRODUCTION TO OCEANOGRAPHY--- GEOL 107 Study Guide #4---Prof. W. Berelson Note: these guides are designed to help you decide what is important to know from the lecture and book material. They may not cover every single topic I might ask about on an exam, but they cover most topics. To study for exams, use this guide, use notes from class, use textbook. -Does the coriolis effect have any impact on the flight of airplanes? -Explain simple convective circulation, what is the Hadley Cell? -The position of the continents has an impact on how ocean currents circulate, for example, how is circulation in the N. Atlantic different than in the S. Atlantic? -Water flows downhill and coriolis deflects it to the right or left. How does water have the opportunity to flow downhill at the surface of the ocean? -What are gyres, how is the circulation described in the N, S Atlantic and N, S Pacific? -Why does the circum-antarctic current flow circum-antarctic? -How is a western boundary current different than an eastern boundary current?
