  1. Time is running out. Are you ready to defuse the dastardly Gang of 14?

  2. Who can help us? • The Awesome Aero Travelers • The Bionic Bomb Squad • The Clever Crime Stoppers • The Jiffy Geographers • The Rancid Ringsters

  3. How will climographs help? A CLIMOGRAPH shows the following information for a particular location: latitude & longitude; elevation; mean (average) monthly temperature in °C or °F; and mean (average) precipitation in centimeters or inches.

  4. DIRECTIONS: Read the clues on the screen. Match the Locations to one of the 14 Climographs your group has. Show your Location guesses to your teacher. Keep all clue slips safe.

  5. Location #1 • June, July, and August appear to be the driest months. • The elevation of this city is just above sea level. • This Northern Hemisphere city lies 12.5° from the Prime Meridian. • January and February temperatures fall below 10° C.

  6. Location #2 • The elevation of this city exceeds 500 m. • Four months out of the year show little or no precipitation. • Its coolest months are June, July, and August. • Its latitude is south of the Tropic of Capricorn.

  7. Location 3 • This Northern Hemisphere city is located just south of the 38th Parallel. • Its elevation is below 50 m. • October through March temperatures may fall below 20° C. • June through September provide the warmest temperatures.

  8. Location #4 • The latitude of this city is near the Arctic Circle. • No month sees more than 10 cm of precipitation. • The elevation of this city is just above sea level. • December, January, and February temperatures are 0° C.

  9. Remember • The bomb is NOT in one of your climograph cities. The clues you receive from your teacher will lead you to the location of the bomb.

  10. Location #5 • The elevation of this Southern Hemisphere city is below 50 m. • Monthly temperatures range between 20° C and 30° C. • The latitude is 23° from the Equator. • December, January, February, and March are the wettest months.

  11. Location #6 • The elevation of this city is below 500 m. • The lack of monthly precipitation indicates an arid climate. • Its latitude is nearly 35° from the Equator. • Its warmest months see temperatures over 30° C.

  12. Location #7 • The elevation of this city is below 100 m. • It is found less than 60° from the Equator. • February, March, and April appear to be its driest months. • Winter temperatures often dip below - 10° C.

  13. Have you begun to use the clues? Some clues are valuable, while others are useless. Some clues will guide you to a certain part of the earth.

  14. Location #8 • The elevation of this city is just above sea level. • September appears to be its wettest month. • Its tropical latitude is 26° from the Equator. • June through September are its warmest months.

  15. Location #9 • Monthly temperatures never rise above 0° C. • There is little or no monthly precipitation. • The elevation of this location is just above sea level. • The longitude of this location is 13° from the International Date Line.

  16. Location #10 • The elevation of this city rises above 2200 m. • This city is found nearly 100° from the Prime Meridian. • December, January, and February show little precipitation. • Monthly temperatures range between 10° C and 20° C.

  17. You have 6 chances to locate the bomb. Guess carefully.

  18. Location #11 • This city’s elevation lies below 25 m. • December, January, and February are its driest months. • June, July, and August are its coolest months. • This Southern Hemisphere city lies 116° from the Prime Meridian.

  19. Location #12 • The rainy season of this location runs from March through October each year. • Its elevation is just above sea level. • Because of its tropical latitude, April through October temperatures remain constant. • This city is found east of the Prime Meridian.

  20. Location #13 • This desert location shows nearly no monthly precipitation. • Its latitude is 30° away from the Equator. • July and August temperatures average nearly 30° C. • Its elevation is below 75 m.

  21. Who will locate the bomb? Will it be you?

  22. Location #14 • This city is located 7° from the International Date Line. • July marks the coldest part of its winter. • Its elevation is just above sea level. • April appears to be its wettest month.

  23. Time is running out. Where is the bomb located?
