Thanks for the feedback!
The wind appears to travel clockwise around high pressure systems in the Northern Hemisphere and counterclockwise in southern Hemisphere. What phenomenon does this describe?
It's the Coriolis Effect.
In which direction do surface winds around low-pressure centers in the Northern Hemisphere generally move?
counter clockwise and towards the center of the low-pressure
in the northern hemisphere a high-pressure system rotates in a clockwise direction. a low pressure system in the northern hemisphere rotates in a counterclock-wise direction.
counterclockwise and outward from the center
What causes the clockwise circulation of air around a center of high pressure in the northern hemisphere?
The Coriolis effect. This is due to the rotation of the Earth and the heating of the Earth by the Sun.
They circulate clockwise in the Northern Hemisphere, and counter clockwise in the Southern Hemisphere.
A low pressure system in the northern hemisphere rotates counter-clockwise.
In the Northern Hemisphere a wind blowing from the south to the north will cause a current of water in which direction?
Winds in a northern hemisphere low pressure system rotate counterclockwise around the low pressure center.
It would blow from the mass of high pressure to the mass of low pressure. Answer 2 Looking down from a satellite, the northern hemisphere high pressure systems move in a clock…wise direction and anticlockwise in the southern hemisphere. Low pressure systems are the reverse of these, IE clockwise in the southern hemisphere and anticlockwise in the northern hemisphere.
In the Northern Hemisphere what is the direction of surface wind circulation in a low-pressure system?
The wind blows clockwise around a high pressure area and counterclockwise around a low pressure area.
How will the winds blowing out of a high pressure system in the northern hemisphere and southern hemisphere blow?
They will blow in opposite directions.
In the northern hemisphere, air spirals counter-clockwise around centers of low pressure and clockwise around centers of high pressure.
