Chapter 21 climate

This chart shows data suggesting an increase in global temperatures since 1880.


Chapter 21 climate

Name two factors that might have caused this increase and explain how they affected climate. Increased use of petroleum, cutting down forests and rainforests, and burning of the rainforests.

Burning of petroleum and trees releases carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. Reducing forests decreases the number of trees to absorb carbon dioxide.


Chapter 21 climate

Essay:

Describe two different methods that scientists can use to study climate changes for which no historical record exists.

Analysis of sediments and shells of microorganisms on the sea floor. Shells that lived at the surface can give a history of changes in temperature of the sea surface.

Drilling into glaciers to study oxygen isotopes create a climate history.

Study tree rings to identify climate history of the trees’ lifetime.


Chapter 21 climate

Essay:

Describe how climate might vary in the regions on two sides of a mountain range, and on two slopes of a single mountain.

Climate on the windward side is wetter and colder. Climate on the leeward side is drier and warmer. The mountains form a barrier to air masses, and rain falls on the windward side as air is forced to rise over the range. Climate on two slopes of a mountain can vary depending on directions the slopes are facing. In the Northern Hemisphere, a north facing slope might be colder and always snow covered.
