Unformatted text preview: EX: Subtropical High(STH) Polar High (PH) WINDS
Are dictated by: Pressure Gradient Force Coriolis Force Friction * On a global scale a simpliﬁed 3-cell model can be identiﬁed. But the interaction of these cells and overall weather processes create a more
complex system of winds. (Know the major pressure belts/ cells: ITCZ, STH, SPL, PHP.
Know whether the air is rising or sinking for each of these.) (Know the major wind patterns: Northeast and Southeast Trade Winds,
Westerlies, Easterlies. Know at what latitudes they will be found and which direction they ﬂow.) .____ -... M. “A. Imnnlnﬂhp lhrlclmnlzinq/diﬂGFOGl l l ULCCIUI...
