The day to day conditions. It is raining outside… The weather conditions over time. Cold Winters. Weather or climate video.
Isotherms- lines that join temperatures of equal value Choose one colour shade from light to dark. Land only.
Stick the map in your book and write a brief description of the temperature pattern. As you move further South the temperature… For example, in the Scottish Highlands it is In London it is…
Choose one colour, shade from light to dark. Land only. Is the pattern different?
Stick the map in your book and write a brief description of the temperature pattern. As you move further South-West the temperature… For example in North-East Scotland it is In London it is …
Everest. The higher the relief, the lower the temperature, about -1C for each 100 metres.
Antarctica. Some surfaces reflect more heat than others. Ice reflects heat, Earth and Ocean retain heat.
Sea heats up slowly and cools slowly. Land heats up quickly and cools quickly.
In Summer the sea takes longer to heat up, places near the sea will be slightly cooler. But land heats up quickly, places in the centre of large landmasses will be very warm. The opposite happens in winter.
At the Poles the suns rays covered a larger surface area, therefore heating is less efficient. At the Equator, the suns rays covered a smaller surface area, therefore heating is more efficient. At the Equator the suns rays also have to travel through less of the Earths atmosphere, therefore more heat energy reaches earth.
Link to Al Gore video here. Also known as the North Atlantic Drift. A current of warm water that travels from the Gulf of Mexico. This, along with the prevailing South- Westerly wind, enables a relatively warmer climate compared to areas on the same latitude.
