Hadley cells are mirror image circulations of air north and south of the equator. In each hemisphere, trade-wind air flows equatorward into the Intertropical Convergence.  The air rises to the top of the troposphere and spreads northward and southward (the antitrade winds). At 20-30 degrees away from the equator, air subsides and warms to form subtropical highs. On the equatorward side of the subtropical highs, air diverges to form the trade winds.
