**Chapter 1 (Cushman-Rosin)**

problems 3, 4

1-3) The land sea breeze is a lighrt wind
blowing from the sea as a result of the temperature difference
between the land and the sea. As this temperature difference reverses
from day to night, the daytime sea breeze turns into a nighttime land
breeze. If you were developing a numerical model of the sea-land
breeze, should you include the effects of the earths rotation?
Justify!

1-4) The Great Red Spot of Jupiter, centered
at 22 degrees south and spaning 12 degrees in latitude and 25 degrees
in longitude, exhibitswind speeds of 100m/sec. The planets radius is
71,400 km and the rotation rate is 1.763 x 10^{-4
}sec^{-1}. Is the Great Red Spot influenced by the
planet's rotation? Justify!
