Based on monthly climate data of temperature and air pressure at the standard geopotential surfaces we construct the structure and intensity of zones of divergence of heat in the atmosphere of the North hemisphere. It was found that the heat zone of the atmosphere as the heat sources are located in the marginal zones of large-scale ocean–continent.
