Climate November 2011
Climate Average weather conditions of an area over a long period of time 3 Climate Zones on Earth Tropical Temperate Polar
Natural Factors that affect climate Latitude (distance from the equator)
Natural Factors that affect climate Prevailing winds in the Atmosphere
Natural Factors that affect climate Mountain formations
Natural Factors that affect climate Large Water Bodies
Natural Factors that affect climate Ocean Currents
Biomes Region of similar climate Similar plant/animal life Examples: Tundra Tropical rain forest
Tropical (near equator) Rain Forest Very poor soil Most diverse place on Earth
Tropical Savanna Tall grass Few trees Poor soil Large mammals
Tropical Desert Very hot and dry Sandy Warmer days, cooler nights Small animals Many plants have waxy outer layer
Temperate (middle latitude) Forest Deciduous trees mostly Fertile soil Diverse animal life We live here
Temperate Grassland Warm summer Cool winters Most fertile soil (farming)
Temperate Chaparral Hot, dry summers Cool, wet winters Moderate precipitation Low lying plants mostly Poor soil
Temperate Desert Little precipitation Very cold nights (little clouds) Waxy vegetation
Polar (near N or S pole) Tundra Short rooted plants Grow close to ground Short summer Very muddy Long winter
Polar Taiga Long cold winters Short summers Coniferous trees (needles) Precipitation is moderate
Biomes Chapter 6.
B(4-4) What are biomes? Vocabulary Biome.
BIOMES. TUNDRA Characteristics – Very Cold (average 18 Fahrenheit). – Little Precipitation (6 inches annually) – Permafrost ground only allows small.
1. Of all the biomes on the planet, this one has the greatest biodiversity. A) temperate grasslands B) temperate deciduous forest C) tropical rain forest.
Tropical Rain Forest Located Near the Equator High Precipitation No Seasons Temperate Rain Forest Middle Latitudes High Temperature Moderate Temperatures.
Terrestrial Biomes. Terrestrial Biome Determining Factors Geography- biome’s location on earth, latitude and altitude Climate- precipitation and temperature.
Chapter 5 By: Genevie Lopez.
Climate Regions Categorized by average temperature & precipitation.
Climate and Climate Change
Biomes and Climate.
Biomes of the World. Weather vs. Climate Weather – the day-to-day condition of Earth’s atmosphere at a certain time and place. Climate – the average yearly.
“Climate is what we expect. Weather is what we get”.
Earth’s Biomes Chapter 23 Section 4.
Terrestrial Biomes. 1.What is climate? 2. weather – the condition of atmosphere at a specific place and time 3. meteorologists tell us the weather on.
Ecosystems and Biomes. Ecosystems Areas formed by plants and animals that have adapted to the environment.
