In this lesson, we will be studying how air circulates through the atmosphere, with a focus on the Hadley Cell.
Unit Overview: Climatic hazards
For next step we recommend the unit: Understanding natural hazards.
In this lesson, we will recap the Hadley Cell from Lesson 1 and learn how air circulates through the atmosphere via the Ferrel and Polar Cells.
In this lesson, we will learn about where tropical storms are formed and which conditions are required for formation.
In this lesson, we will learn about the structure and features of tropical storms. We will also learn about how tropical storms form and develop.
In this lesson, we will consider how climate change might impact the distribution, frequency and intensity of tropical storms.
In this lesson, we will learn about the primary and secondary impacts of tropical storms and the immediate and long-term responses.
In this lesson, we will be learning about Typhoon Haiyan - a named tropical storm example.
In this lesson, we will be learning about how to reduce the effects of tropical storms through monitoring, prediction, protection and planning.
In this lesson, we will be examining evidence to suggest that the UK's weather is becoming more extreme.
In this lesson, we will be learning about the location and causes of an extreme weather event in the UK: the Somerset Floods 2013-2014.
In this lesson, we will be learning about the impacts (effects) and management (responses) of the Somerset Floods 2013-2014.
