    frequent, and wind is often mild (Department of Hydrology and Atmospheric Sciences, 2013). The air becomes cooler as it ascends closer to the tropopause at which, the air forks toward both the north and south poles. Applying the rotation of the Earth to the air under controlled circumstances – a constant surface temperature and no tilt; viola, Hadley’s theory gave westerly movement to the air and once again had them converging at the equator. What Hadley’s theory missed, however, was how far the winds traveled before returning to the surface to perform its cyclical ritual. Falling far short of the Polar Regions, cool air makes its way back to the surface much sooner; sinking down it becomes clear, warm, and dry near 30° latitude of both hemispheres. Divergence occurs again at the surface, this time the air warms as…

    equator descending from the North Pole in the winter the amount of sunlight is grows, until hitting a full 24 hours of daylight at the South Pole. However in the summer it is the opposite.

    As the Earth travels in its nearly circular orbit around the sun, it maintains a constant axial tilt of 23.4 degrees. This tilt causes the proximity of the northern and southern hemispheres of the globe to change during its annual trip around our local star. These changes in proximity and their impact on the amount of solar energy received by the northern and southern hemispheres are what causes the Earth to have seasons. As the incline of Earth’s axis brings the northern hemisphere closer to…
