Factors that affect an area s climate

Factors that affect an area’s climate?

  • LAWT-O!


Factors that affect an area s climate

3. temp of water

4. sinking/floating

5. Temperature

6. Salinity

7. Flow of ocean water caused by changes in density(temp and salt).Occurs at poles and equator

8. Both driven by density & temp differences. One in ocean other in atmosphere.

9. Moderates global climate as well as local climate.

10. Wind


Description of climate

Description of Climate

  • Average temperature

  • Average precipitation


Factors that affect an area s climate

decreases

deserts

glaciers

cooler

milder

As air rises it expands and cools. This is called adiabatic cooling

O ⁰, 60⁰

Unequal heating (of the earth’s surface)

Cloudy and stormy

Clear and sunny


Factors that affect an area s climate

Mesosphere

Stratosphere

Mesosphere

Stratosphere (and Thermosphere)

Thermosphere

Thermosphere

Troposphere

Exosphere (Thermosphere)

Troposphere


Factors that affect an area s climate

Hot / Sub humid

Hot / Sub humid

Hot / Arid

Cold/ Arid

Cold/ Semi arid

Temperate/ Semi arid

Cold/ Semi arid

Temperate/ Semi arid

Rain shadow effect – as air rise up over the mountain the air will cool, form clouds and rain (on city H). By the time the air makes it to the other side of the mountain, it is dry and will produce no precipitation


Biomes

Biomes

  • The world’s regions that have been classified by its climate (temperature and precipitation) as well as its plant growth


Climograph

climograph

  • a graphical representation of basic climatic at a certain location.

  • valuable tool in studying climate

  • used to infer connections between climate and human conditions

  • You will learn to read, analyze, and practice matching climographs to locations on earth

  • Why does the position of the Farallon Islands make them such a magnet for marine life? How does the upwelling of the Gulf of the Farallones affect life in and around the islands?

  • How have humans impacted animal populations on the islands throughout history?

  • What alarming changes have researchers seen in and around the Farallon Islands in recent years? What positive changes do they see?
