Which of the following factors drives all the weather on Earth, including large-scale storms and local weather systems? A. The Sun heats up the air at different rates and the atmosphere must try to equalize temperatures and pressures. B. The Coriolis Effect curves the motion of wind due to the Earth's rotation. C. The ocean holds the heat of the Sun more efficiently than the land. D. The Greenhouse Effect ensures that some of the Sun's heat will be trapped close to Earth.
The correct answer is letter B. The Coriolis Effect curves the motion of wind due to the Earth’s rotation. It is a major factor that drives all the weather on Earth which also includes large-scale storms and local weather systems in the atmosphere. The Coriolis force also affects oceanic currents.
