    Note: Perspective - as seen from the Northern Hemipshere
    Seasons are caused by the tilt of Earth's axis. Earth's axis is not straight, but instead it is inclined at an angle of 23.5 degrees. Earth's tilt (23.5 degrees) coupled with Earth's revolution causes the seasons.

    The brighter areas of the moon are the mountainous highlands. The darker areas are the level maria (smooth plains with huge circular basins). Every area labeled Mare is an area of maria.
    Sources of info
    There waswere some notes
    do any labs on the moon basics only rotation
    All are stuff is from chapter 24 in the text book for us pages p.433-443

    Textbook use:
    We used the textbook to convert light years into miles, and we used our class notes to find the average distance of the earth and sun.

    Meanwhile, warm moist air is moving over the ocean taking the place of the water vapor that has just risen
    This creates a wind and repeats itself until a cyclonic pattern forms {http://web.mit.edu/12.000/www/m2010/teams/neworleans1/hurricane%20science_files/image004.jpg}

    What is a Hurricane?
    Severe tropical storms that rotate in a counter-clockwise direction around an "eye."
    ...
    Warm temperatures
    The water emperatures for a hurricane must be at least 80 degrees farenheit to a depth of 50 meters. This and warm temperatures from the sun cause the water to evaporate and to make an unstable atmosphere which creates the actually thunderstorm and convection to kickstart and sustain a hurricane.

    Tropical winds (near the equator)
    The coriolis effect deflects the winds, such as the tradewinds, moving twords the low pressure points. These two winds counteracting eachother creates circulation and movement.

    Hurricane Steps to Formation
    The warm temperatures create water vapor that rises
    ...
    This water vapor and condensation makes the air lighter and it continues to rise
    Meanwhile, warm moist air is moving over the ocean taking the place of the water vapor that has just risen
