Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information to investigate the interaction of solar energy and Earth’s systems to produce weather and climate.
No resources have been tagged as aligned with this standard.
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.
Analyze and interpret data (e.g., maps, meteograms, and weather apps) that demonstrate how the interaction and movement of air masses creates weather.
Construct an argument that predicts weather patterns based on interactions among ocean currents, air masses, and topography.
Analyze and interpret data to show how temperature and precipitation produce the pattern of climate regions (zones) on Earth.
Construct an explanation that describes the conditions that generate extreme weather events (e.g., hurricanes, tornadoes, and thunderstorms) and the hazards associated with these events.
