#### Slide 10 -Slide

Wind
What is wind?

• Moving air

• Movement because of difference in air pressure

#### Slide 11 -Slide

Air pressure
Note:
Air pressure is the amount of air pushing down on the earth. This pressure can be high or low.
• Low pressure: in areas where the air is ascending
• High pressure: in areas where the air is descending

Air pressure

#### Slide 13 -Slide

In which direction do winds move?
A
From a low to a high pressure area
B
from a high to a low pressure area
C
Always from sea to land
D
Totally random

#### Slide 14 -Quiz

High or Low?
• Decide for each area if it is a high pressure or a low pressure area.
• Think of a reason why the winds don't move in a straight line.

#### Slide 15 -Slide

Winds move
A
towards the equator
B
away from the equator

#### Slide 16 -Quiz

Winds move

B

#### Slide 17 -Quiz

Winds move in a straight line
A
True
B
False

#### Slide 18 -Quiz

The wind System
Note:
• Buijs Ballot's Law is says that wind travels from a maximum (high pressure area) to a minimum (low pressure area).
• The wind doesn't move in a straight line because of the earth's rotation.
• The wind in the Northerns hemisphere turns to the right, wind in the southern hemisphere turns to the left (standing with your back to the wind!)

Monsoon
Note:
A monsoon is a wind that reverses its direction every six months.
The winds change around the geographical equator because the tropical minimum moves along with the earth's axis.

See GG nr. 47 & figure 3.22
