  • 4. Factors that Affect Climate 1. Latitude: distance north or south of the equator. a. Tropics: (between 23 degrees N. and 23 degrees S.); Sun shines directly from overhead, keeping temperatures high
  • 5. Factors that Affect Climate b. Polar Zones: (66 degrees N. & 66 degrees S. to the poles) ; Sun shines at a low angle, keeping Temperatures low c. Temperate Zones: (between the tropics and the poles); Moderate Temperatures

At the same latitude, the climate on a mountain is colder than the climate at sea level c. Mountains cause air to rise, cool, and condense, creating a wetter climate on the windward side of the mountain and a much drier climate on the leeward side (Chinook Winds)
  • 11. Chinook Winds
  • 12. Factors that Affect Climate  4. Cities: because of their large areas of solar radiation—absorbing pavement, cities frequently have higher temperatures that surrounding areas
