How can you best remember normal global wind patterns (without the interference of El Nino or La Nina)?
I think it is best to remember the wind patterns by looking at them as convection currents. From the equator, we see Hadley cells rising up from the equator, so the winds blow toward down toward the equator. Then, from there it flip-flops. Ferrell cells curve upward. Then, polar cells curve back down. For the southern hemisphere, it is the opposite (i.e. Hadley cells curve downward). Does that answer your question? Here is a brief study guide that covers this: https://app.fiveable.me/apes/unit-4/global-wind-patterns/study-guide/eVG86e42B0MvmzUs3FYI
