Erin Riche OCS Chapter Six 6. Describe the Coriolis effect in the Northern and Southern hemispheres and include a discussion of why the strength of the Coriolis effect increases at higher latitudes. In the Northern Hemisphere, because The Corolis effect causes certain things on Earth to trail a curved route, it will go right of its intended course. Vice versa with the South Hemisphere, it will curve left. The strength of the Corliolis effect increases at higher latitudes because as latitude increases and the speed of the earth's rotation decreases (at higher latitudes), Coriolis effect increases because the greatest influence of the Coriolis effect is at the poles. Also, because of the difference of velocity at the north and south poles (which has different latitudes) also contributes to increase of the Corliolis effect at higher latitudes. 7. Sketch the pattern of surface wind belts on Earth, showing atmospheric circulation cells, zones of high and low pressure, the names of the wind belts, and the names of the boundaries between the wind belts.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
