Answer to Question #83042 in Physical geography for Harriet

Question #83042
Explain how the global circulation of the atmosphere affects the track of tropical cyclones (4 marks)
Expert's answer

The global circulation of the atmosphere is formed under the influence of the uneven distribution of solar radiation, the action of the Coriolis force and the heterogeneity of the underlying surface. This process creates in particular the zone of high pressure, or subtropical ridge — a band of high atmospheric pressure covering the Earth at latitude of about 30 degrees as the Northern (30 ° N) and southern (30 ° S) latitude.

Cyclones move from East to West along the Equatorial periphery of constant baric maxima on the oceans.
