Warmup:

Get ready for the quiz


Lame cow

LAME-COW

Climate and Vegetation


What is climate

A Measure of Temperature and Precipitation over time.

What is Climate?


Foldable

  • On the front:

    • Write L, A, M, E --- C, O, W vertically on the front

  • Write the following words beside the corresponding letter.

    • L – Latitude

    • A – Altitude

    • M – Mountain Barriers

    • E – Earth-Sun Relationship

    • C – Continental Location

    • O – Ocean Currents

    • W – Wind

Foldable


Latitude

  • Measures North-South of Equator

    • Biggest effect on climate

    • Equator=Direct Rays=HOT!

    • Poles=Very Indirect Rays=COLD!

Latitude


Altitude

  • Increase in height = Decrease in temperature

    • 1000 ft = 3.6oF

Altitude

Cold

Cool

War

Hot


Mountain barriers

  • Rain Shadow Effect

    • Mountains block wind and rain

Mountain Barriers


Earth sun relationship

Effects the temperatures and seasons

Earth-Sun Relationship


Continental location

  • Oceans are solar collectors

    • Water heats and cools more slowly than land

      • Coastline has a stable temperature

      • Interior of continent has extreme temperatures

Continental Location


Ocean currents

  • Surface Currents caused by spinning of Earth & Wind

  • Flow in circular paths

    • Warm currents carry water from low high lats

    • Cool currents return cool water from high low lats

Ocean Currents


Get ready for the quiz

  • Movements of air pressure from high pressure to low pressure

    • Trade Winds=blow east around equator (Low Lats)

    • Westerlies=blow west (Mid Lats)

    • Polar Winds=push cold air toward mid-latitudes

Wind
