What is caused by the uneven heating of Earth and its atmosphere?


The uneven heating of Earth's surface has a great effect on the air in the troposphere. For example, the air in the troposphere above a Canadian forest is colder and drier than the air above the ocean near the equator. A large body of air that has the same characteristics throughout is called an air mass. Air masses form in the troposphere and help determine the weather. The heat and humidity of an air mass are determined by the conditions where it forms.

Differences in pressure, which is what drives wind and the redistribution of this heat poleward through storms, largely. This is basically why we have weather.

The heat flux from the Earth's core to the surface is about 10 mW / m^2. The Sun's insolation is about 342 W / m^2, or 34200 times more. So .. I would guess that the Earth's own heat
Usually midway between Plants and Carnivores. A Herbivore, as their name implies, only eat plants. They in turn provide food for Carnivores (Big Cats, Wolves and some Bears)
