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
mountain barriers

Rain Shadow Effect

    • Mountains block wind and rain
Mountain Barriers
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
slide14

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
