CA.ES. Earth Sciences
ES.3. Water on Earth moves between the oceans and land through the processes of evaporation and condensation. As a basis for understanding this concept:
ES.3.c. Students know water vapor in the air moves from one place to another and can form fog or clouds, which are tiny droplets of water or ice, and can fall to Earth as rain, hail, sleet, or snow.
ES.4. Energy from the Sun heats Earth unevenly, causing air movements that result in changing weather patterns. As a basis for understanding this concept:
ES.4.c. Students know the causes and effects of different types of severe weather.
ES.4.e. Students know that the Earth's atmosphere exerts a pressure that decreases with distance above Earth's surface and that at any point it exerts this pressure equally in all directions.
