Latitude

FIGURE 8.5 Evaporation and precipitation zones across latitudes on the Earth, which are influenced by solar radiation (Fig. 7.1) and wind regimes from the doldrums near the equator to the trade winds at mid-latitudes to the cyclonic gyres at high latitudes (Fig. 8.4). Ocean salinities (Table 7.2) are highest in the evaporative mid-latitude regions. Modified from Garrels et al. (1975) and Pickard and Emery (1982).
