DETAILED CONTENT/LESSON FOCUS
SKILLS
Pattern and causes of seasonal atmospheric changes.
CLIMATE
CJ SCHEDULE
WEEKS 1-15
The general atmospheric circulation system:

· seasonal atmospheric changes;
movement of major atmospheric pressure belts;
· subtropical anticyclones and the inter-tropical
convergence zone ({TCZ).

· Hadley Cell and modifications.
· Changing position of overhead sun.
Movement of ITCZ (or ITD).
· Structure of atmosphere in the tropics - jet streams.
Evidence from satellite imagery.
Photograph
interpretation.
Seasonal changes within the tropical regions of Africa with wet and dry seasons and the influence on hydrology and ecology.

Seasonal Variations in wind direction, precipitation and temperature.

'Wet' season linked to low pressure as ITCZ moves poleward. Strong convection/instability 'dry' season as ITCZ moves equatorwards. Dry Trade Winds blowing from sub tropical high pressure.

Primary source collection and use of weather maps. Secondary source utilisation from:
photographs; published statistical data; remotely sensed imagery;
GIS.

Hydrological response to these seasonal atmospheric changes.


· Revisit flood hydrograph and river regimes.
Link to soil/water budget (water surplus).

Ecological responses to these seasonal atmospheric changes:

soil moisture budgets;


· High potential evapotranspiration.
· Variations (definitions) water surplus, soil moisture utilisation, water deficit, soil moisture recharge.

Organisation and presentation of evidence:
graphs (line and bar graphs).
Analysis and Evaluation of evidence:
map and photograph interpretation.
