What direction would the winds blow around a high pressure center in the northern hemisphere?
The wind blows clockwise around a high pressure area and counterclockwise around a low pressure area.
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.
High pressure systems turn anti clockwise in the southern hemisphere and clockwise in the northern hemisphere
counterclockwise and outward from the center
In the Northern Hemisphere, winds associated with a high-pressure system blow clockwise towards the center.
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.
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 winds blow to the between the subtropical high pressure zone and subpolar low pressure zone?
The winds that blow between the subtropical high pressure zone and the sub-polar low pressure zone are called westerly winds. These winds curve to the east because of 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
Near the Earth's surface, air will spiral from high to low pressure at a rate determined by the pressure gradient (and at an angle relative to that gradient). The Earth's rota…tion turns the air as it moves from high to low pressure, so the air doesn't make a bee-line from high to low as it would if the Earth didn't rotate. Higher up in the atmosphere, the air is deflected at nearly a 90 degree angle, so the air flows almost parallel to the pressure gradient.
Winds blow anti-clockwise around a low in the northern hemisphere, and vice-versa in the southern hemisphere
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.
Winds in a northern hemisphere low pressure system rotate counterclockwise around the low pressure center.
They circulate clockwise in the Northern Hemisphere, and counter clockwise in the Southern Hemisphere.
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 the northern hemisphere, air spirals counter-clockwise around centers of low pressure and clockwise around centers of high pressure.
