Polar High -Snow+Ice - 80 N, 90 N Thermally Induced Equatorial Low N+S Polar Highs Mechanically induced N+S Subtropical High N+S Subpolar Low *Need to know* Warm air always rises. (The warm air comes from the equatorial low) Cold air descends, which causes higher air pressure (The descending air flows towards the equator) In S. Pole ice can be 2 miles thick In the N.
