Reference Lines on Earth, Continued - 14220_27
Reference Lines on Earth, Continued Parallels  of Latitude Parallels  are  the  small  circles around  and  on  Earth’s  surface. For  navigation,  parallels  of latitude  have  been  established. They  are  all  parallel  to  the plane  of  the  Equator.  Figure 1-7  illustrates  parallels  of latitude.  Since  they  are  all parallel  to  the  Equator,  latitude can  be  measured  towards  the North  Pole  and  South  Pole. How  Latitude  is  Latitude  is Measured measured  in degrees   (°), minutes  ('),  and seconds  (")  north  or south of the Equator. Measurements   of latitude  cannot exceed  90°  in  either direction.   This   is due  to  the  fact  that the  Equator  is always perpendicular  (at  a right  angle)  from the  great  circle  that forms  the  plane through  the  North Pole  and  South  Pole. Figure  1-7.  Examples  of  parallels  of latitude. Figure  1-8.  Measurement  of  latitude. Figure  1-8  illustrates  this  clearly.  Do  not  confuse  angular  expressions  of minutes  and  seconds  with  units  of  time  because  they  are  unrelated. 1-10
