ES 21, August 28, 2017

Standard: SES5. Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information to investigate the interaction of solar energy and Earth’s systems to produce weather and climate.
a. Develop and use models to explain how latitudinal variations in solar heating create differences in air pressure, global wind patterns, and ocean currents that redistribute heat globally.
b. Analyze and interpret data (e.g., maps, meteograms, and weather apps) that demonstrate how the interaction and movement of air masses creates weather.
c. Construct an argument that predicts weather patterns based on interactions among ocean currents, air masses, and topography.
Learning Targets: List the gases in the atmosphere by percentage.
Explain how dew forms.
Explain how clouds form.
Activity: Complete notes on 11.2.  Turn in section assessments.  Make a cloud organizer- see page 300 for an example.
