Prevailing Winds & The Jet Stream

Unit 5: Meteorology
Lesson 10 of 17

Objective: SWBAT define and identify prevailing winds, and explain how the Coriolis effect manipulates global wind patterns (including on the ESRT) | SWBAT define and identify jet streams and the effect they have on “storm tracks” as they move across the atmosphere

Big Idea: This lesson incorporates some videos, in addition to an image used in their Earth Science Reference tables, to have them analyze the major wind belts that form as a result of the uneven heating of the Earth and the Coriolis Effect
