The Sun is the major source of energy for circulating the atmosphere and oceans.
Generate a conclusion about energy transfer and circulation by observing a model of convection currents.
Circulation of water in marine environments is dependent on factors such as the composition of water masses and energy from the Sun or wind.
An ecosystem includes all of the plant and animal populations and nonliving resources in a given area. Organisms interact with each other and with other components of an ecosystem.
Plants are producers: They use the energy from light to make food (sugar) from carbon dioxide and water. Plants are used as a source of food (energy) for other organisms.
All animals, including humans, are consumers that meet their energy needs by eating other organisms or their products.
Illustrate the flow of energy (food) through a community.
The transfer of thermal energy by conduction, convection, and radiation can produce large-scale events such as those seen in weather.
Relate the transfer of heat from oceans and land masses to the evolution of a hurricane.
