Asked in Meteorology and Weather
What general patterns do winds and currents follow?
Winds generally come from different directions depending where you are on the planet. The equator to 30oN the wind blows from the north east. The equator to 30oS the wind blows from the south east. 30oN to 60oN the wind blows from the west. 30oS to 60oS the wind blows from the west. if you are further than 60o North or South, the wind blows from the pole. a diagram that illustrates why winds blow this way is linked here. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Earth_Global_Circulation.jpg Ocean currents have no general flow, there are two different types, surface and deep ocean currents. Surface currents are linked here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Ocean_surface_currents.jpg The thermohaline current is a current that circulates warm water and cool water (thermo) as well as differently concentrated salt waters (haline) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Thermohaline_Circulation_2.png

Identify three patterns of inheritance in humans?
Asked in Astronomy, Planetary Science, The Moon
Is it the sun or moon that is directly linked to the earth's climate?
Clearly, they are both directly linked to the earth's climate, but in different ways. Without the sun there would be no climate at all that could sustain human life. The tidal movements caused by our relationship with the moon help to drive ocean currents that affect our climate, and the moon plays a major role in stabilizing our axial tilt. Perhaps I'm not getting your idea of 'directly', but these links and others are direct enough for me. We can put it this way. It might take a while for the sudden 'disappearance' of the moon to have its effect, but if we had never obtained our moon, the climate we enjoy would never have come about. Probably, neither would we.

How are animals and climate linked in an ecosystem?
Why are heterozygous individuals called carriers for non-sex-linked and X-linked recessive patterns of inheritance?
Asked in Plate Tectonics
How do convection currents and gravitational forces affect the earth' crust?
It affects the earth's crust as it is related to the action of divergent boundaries where two plates are moving apart causing the continents to move. This is linked to convection currents as hot rocks lower in the mantle are forced up to the surface by gravitational forces, cooling, sinking and then heating again, helping the movement of the rigid plates
