Describe how weather and climate involve the transfer of energy in and out of the atmosphere.
Explain how unequal heating of the air, ocean and land produces wind and ocean currents.
Analyze the energy transformations that occur during the greenhouse effect and predict the long-term effects of increased pollutant levels in the atmosphere.
Analyze the mechanisms that drive a weather phenomena (e.g., El Nino, hurricane, tornado) using the correlation of three methods of heat energy transfer.
