Year 10 Geography Option

Air Pressure Systems 2: Depressions

In this lesson we will learn about the typical sequence of weather brought about by the passage of a mid-latitude depression. We will understand the meaning and sequence of the warm front, warm sector, cold front and occluded front and the typical weather associated with each. We will also learn how to recognise a depression on a weather chart and be able to forecast the weather for a particular locality shown on a weather chart that shows a mid-latitude depression.

Hurricane Katrina

In this lesson you will locate the origin and course of hurricane Katrina, describe the weather conditions over New Orleans during the storm and list the destructive results of the hurricane as it affected the population, building and property, places and the economy in general.
