Transcript of How Heat Transfer Affects Weather

Then the surface transfers heat to air surrounding the surface, causing the air to lose density. When this happens, the air will rise above lower air. Then the lower air sinks and when the airs of different densities switch places, that is known as convection taking place in a convection current. This cycle will continue until the surface and the atmosphere come to the same temperature. Wind Heat transfers pretty much drive the wind itself. heat High and low pressure the ultimate source of energy for all life here on earth. It is also a huge provider of heat through RADIATION where the sun transfers the heat it gets from thermo-nuclear reactions through the absolute nothingness of space to here on earth. heat is the transfer of thermal energy. It flow in one direction only; from matter that has more thermal energy to matter with less, until the thermal energies between the two are even. High and low pressures deals with winds of different densities, which we know is directly related to the amount of thermal energy in matter. High pressure has low density air while low pressure has warmer air. But, such matters are have a balance and when pressures go haywire... The heat transfers to the atmosphere from the surface by conduction, or a direct transfer of heat.
