T2 w1 monsoon and climates

  1. 1. weather 
 & climateMonsoon winds Climatic types
  2. 2. by the end of the lesson, I am able to… 1) Explain how monsoon winds affects rainfall patterns 2) Describe and identify 3 climatic types
  3. 3. 1) Refer to handout from last week (pg 2) ! Self Marking
  4. 4. (i) Explain how the monsoon winds affect the amount of rainfall received by Thailand in June and December. Thailand
  5. 5. In June, the Southern Hemisphere experiences winter while the Northern Hemisphere experiences summer. Thailand Summer Winter This means that the air over Australia sinks and the air pressure is higher than the Central Asia. As the Southeast Monsoon winds leaves Australia, the Coriolis effect causes the winds to deflect to the left. ! As a result, the Southeast Monsoon winds cross the Indian Ocean as it moves towards the equator, warming up and picking up more moisture.
  6. 6. As the Southeast monsoon winds crosses the Equator, the Coriolis effect cause it to deflect to its right. Thus, the winds became Southwest monsoon winds, blowing towards Thailand. Thailand Summer Winter As a result, by the time the Southwest monsoon winds reaches Thailand, the air is saturated, bringing high rainfall in June.
  7. 7. In December, the Northern Hemisphere experiences winter while the Southern Hemisphere experiences summer. Thailand Summer Winter This means that the air over Central Asia sinks and the air pressure is higher than Australia. As the monsoon winds leaves Central Asia, the Coriolis effect causes the winds to deflect to the right, causing the winds to become the Northeast Monsoon. 
 As the Northeast monsoon winds blows over the land, the air is cold and dry.
  8. 8. As a result,Thailand would experience little rainfall during this period. Thailand Summer Winter
  9. 9. Thailand and India June Raining Cats and Dogs Dec Cool and Dry Realise any patterns?
  10. 10. Central Asia and Australia Summer - Hot, High Rainfall Winter - cold Realise any patterns?
  11. 11. Central Asia and Australia Summer - Hot, High Rainfall Winter - cold Realise any patterns?
  12. 12. Central Asia and Australia Summer - Hot, High Rainfall Winter - cold Realise any patterns?
  13. 13. same pattern = c same climate type Tropical Climate
 High temp. and rainfall all year round Monsoon Climate
 Rainy season + Dry Season Warm Temperate
 4 Seasons (Spring, Summer,Autumn,Winter)
  14. 14. refer to your handout What are the characteristics of each climate? How do we determine which climate a place is
