S6E4. Gather, evaluate, and communicate information about how the sun, land, and water affect climate and weather.

A. Analyze and interpret data to compare and contrast the composition of Earth’s atmospheric layers (including the ozone layer) and greenhouse gases. Earth’s atmospheric layers include the troposphere, stratosphere, mesosphere, and thermosphere.   Items 1-8

B. Plan and carry out an investigation to demonstrate how energy from the sun transfers heat to air, land and water at different rates.  Heat transfer should include the processes of conduction, convection, and radiation.  Items 13-16

C. Develop a model demonstrating the interaction between unequal heating and the rotation of the Earth that causes local and global wind systems. Items-17-28

D. Construct an explanation of the relationship between air pressure, weather fronts, and air masses and meteorological events such as tornados and thunderstorms. Items 34-36

E. Analyze and interpret weather data to explain the effects of moisture evaporating from the ocean on weather patterns and weather events such as hurricanes.  Items 37-41
