Intertropical Convergence, trade winds, subtropical high, westerlies, polar front, polar easterlies, and polar high. Because of the change in differential heating by latitude, the components shift north and south following the declination of the sun. For instance, the Intertropical Convergence shifts north of the equator during the Northern Hemisphere's summer. Various components expand and contract in size. For instance, subtropical highs are much larger in the summer than in the winter season.
