    3. Winds over water are faster than over land. Why do you think that might be so? 
    4. In which atmospheric layer are winds the fastest? Can you think why? 
    5. Describe the northern jet stream, found at a height of 250 hPa.  Does the Jet Stream circle the earth? Is it straight or kinked? 
    6. Share a screenshot of the jetstream.  Be sure you are in the 250 hPa atmospheric level.
    7. On what date did you take an image of the jet stream? 
    8. Is there a southern jet stream? If so, how is it different from the northern jet stream?  For example, does it move in the same direction?
    9. Post a screenshot of the Southern Jet Stream, if you find one. 
    10. What other map feature would you like to point out to your Globallab classmates?
