Textbook Problem

Draw the general pattern for the atmospheric circulation of the Northern Hemisphere (without looking at Figure 8.15). Now locate these features: the doldrums (or ITCZ), the horse latitudes, the prevailing westerlies, and the trade winds.

Expert Solution
To determine

The general pattern for the atmospheric circulation of the Northern Hemisphere and locate these features: the doldrums (or ITCZ), the horse latitudes, the prevailing westerlies, and the trade winds using a figure.

Explanation of Solution

Hadley cell, a Ferrel cell, and a polar cell are the atmospheric circulation cells that are present in the Northern Hemisphere. The winds that exist between 15 degree North and 15 degree South latitudes are known as trade winds. Westerlies are surface winds that are centred on 45 degree North and South latitudes
