Sun, Ocean, Weather

How is Earth's Weather fueled Thermal Energy
Which part of Earth receives the most Thermal Energy Equator
How is weather formed Uneven heating in poles causes differences in temperature/pressure, this leds to air masses moving.
What is the definition of temperature Measures how fast air molecules move.
How do molecules act in high temperatures Molecules move faster and are farther apart
How do molecules act in cold temperatures Molecules more slower, and are more compact.
How does movement in temperatures occur Differences in air pressure cause wind, this works to balance the pressure.
What are fronts Boundaries between two air masses
How are cold fronts created, as well as there effects When cold air mass pushes under a warm air mass forcing warm air to rise, the effects are Shower, thunderstorms, form moisture in warm air mass rises, cools and condenses, a drop in temperature.
How are warm fronts created, as well as there effects When moist, warm air mass slides up and over cold air mass, the effects cloudiness/ light precipitation along, warmer weather.
How are stationary fronts created, as well as there effects When cold and warm air masses doesn't have enough force to move one another, the effects are clouds, fog form, may rain
How are occluded fronts created, as well as there effects Warm air mass gets caught between two cold air masses, the warm air mass rises, as the cold air mass push, these masses meet in the middle, the effects are temperature drops(When warm air mass is cut off, and pushed upward), strong winds, heavy precipita
What is climate Average weather of the area over many years.
What weather is associated with low pressure Cloudy/Rain
What weather is associated with high pressure Sunny
