**Climate Graphs Each climate graph is made up of 2 major parts.**

A line graph for temperature. Always represented by a red line. A bar graph for precipitation. Always represented by blue bars

**Climate Graphs Line Graphs.**

Temperature is easier seen with a line graph than by statistics. The horizontal axis is used to show the time period (months), and the vertical axis is used to show the temperature (degrees Celsius). The first step is finding the average temperature for each month and then plotting it on the graph. Once you have done this you can connect the dots with a flowing line. You should not see the dots when you are finished.

**Climate Graphs Bar Graphs.**

They are similar to a line graph and easy to interpret. The horizontal axis shows the time period (months), and the vertical axis shows the precipitation quantities (mm). Bars are joined together to show a continuity from one month to the next. You need to have the average precipitation for each month to construct the bar graph.

6
Climate Graphs It is when the temperature line graph and precipitation bar graph are put together that you get a climate graph. From a climate graph you can determine: Temperature and temperature ranges for a particular place. Rainfall and the seasonal distributions of rain. Approximate latitude and elevation. Northern or southern hemisphere. You can identify climate types by carefully looking at the temperatures, the temperature range, the rainfall amount and the pattern of rainfall.
