Meteorology
A large-scale atmospheric convection cell in which air rises at the equator and sinks at medium latitudes, typically about 30° north or south.
Oraciones de ejemplo
  • The near-surface equatorward branch of the Hadley cell is transporting cool air to warmer regions.
  • This movement causes the three Hadley cells in the northern hemisphere to ‘elongate’ southwards.
  • This cell, in contrast to the Hadley cells, straddles the equator and thus is very asymmetric.
