#13: In both February and August, SSTs off the California coast are _____. SSTs at the same latitude off
the southeast US coast. This temperature contrast can be attributed to the southward flowing cold
California current and coastal upwelling along the West Coast, and the northward flowing warm Gulf
Stream along the East Coast. (Coastal upwelling is the upward circulation of cold bottom water toward
the ocean surface).
#14: Compare the latitude positions of the 20°C isotherms at the two times of the year. Comparison
shows that the orange belt of solar-warmed waters (20°C and higher) that straddles the equator is more
northerly in _____.
#15: The same comparison of the two SST maps shows that the orange belt of solar-warmed waters
(20°C or higher) is more southerly in _____.
#16: From February to August the orange belt of solar warmed waters (20°C and higher) shifts _____.
#17: From August to February the orange belt of solar-warmed waters shifts _____.
#18: In both hemispheres, the orange belt where SSTs are 20°C or higher has its maximum poleward
location when that hemisphere is experiencing its ____.
