A reading that explains Earth’s equable climate in the past using the theories, Hadley Cells, Convective Cloud Feedback, Polar Stratospheric Clouds, and Tropical Cyclones.
Students will learn about Earth’s equable climate. They can use this reading to understand role of the Hadley Cell in detail, how Hadley Cells transport heat in the atmosphere and its contribution towards Earth’s equable climate in the past.
Use this tool to help students find answers to:
- What is the evidence for an equable climate on Earth in the past?
- How do Hadley Cells transport heat in the atmosphere?
