To determine

The way in which the surplus energy in the low latitudes is transferred to higher latitudes.

Explanation

The energy budgets concerned with definite places are not balanced or stable. The lower latitudes received high amount of solar radiations compared to the energy these regions lost directly by reradiating it to space. Thus, the lower latitudes have surplus of energy. On the otherhand, the higher latitudes receive less solar energy than the energy reradiated back to space by these regions. Thus, the higher latitudes have a deficiency of energy...
