land breeze the flow of air from land to a body of water when at night when cooler air from above the land moves over the water, forcing the heated, less dense air above the water to rise
sea breeze movement of air from sea to land during the day when cooler air from above the water moves over the land, forcing the heated, less dense air above the land to rise
Coriolis effect Causes moving air and water to turn left in the southern hemisphere and turn right in the northern hemisphere due to rotation of the earth's axis
convection currents the upward movement of warm air and the downward movement of cool air
Latitude distance north or south of the Equator, measured in degrees
Longitude Distance east or west of the prime meridian, measured in degrees
Equator an imaginary line drawn around the earth equally distant from both poles, dividing the earth into northern and southern hemispheres and constituting the parallel of latitude 0°.
Earth's axis point earth spins on and when this changes so do the seasons
