Presentation Transcript

Which graph best represents the general relationship between latitude and average surface temperature?

TIME

LATITUDE

SEASONAL

### SEASONS

TILT!

DISTANCE!

The diagram shows a model of Earth’s orbit

around the Sun. Letters A, B, C, and D representEarth’s position at the beginning of each season.

In which orbital position would Earth be illuminated as shown?

(1) A (3) C

(2) B (4) D

Viewed

from above the North Pole.

In New York State, summer is warmer than

winter because in summer New York has

(1) fewer hours of daylight and receives low angle

insolation

(2) fewer hours of daylight and receives high angle

insolation

(3) more hours of daylight and receives low-angle

insolation

(4) more hours of daylight and receives high angle

insolation

Earth’s tilt is always the same.

• Tilt causes seasonal difference in insolation over 365.25 d revolution
• DISTANCE TO SUN HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH IT!
