    • Climate and Landforms
    • How would you describe this scene? And, where is it?

    • How would you describe this scene? And, where is it?
    • Weather and Climate: What’s the Difference?
      • Weather is relatively short-term and Climate is relatively long-term .
      • Examples:
        • Johnny was a real jerk at the party yesterday, which is weird because he is a pretty mellow guy.
        • San Diego is rainy in January, but is generally a fairly dry place to live.
    • Factors of Climate
      • O WELL!
      • Ocean Currents
      • Wind Currents
      • Elevation
      • Latitude
      • Landforms
    • Ocean Currents
      • “ Highways” of warm/ cold water affects climate of area
      • Oceans are huge
      • San Diego: hot or cold water?
      • Florida: hot or cold water?
    • Wind Currents
      • Same as Ocean. Why?
    • Elevation
      • Elevation:
        • In relation to sea level
        • Higher elevation= cooler
        • For ea. 1000 ft., lose 3.5 degrees
    • Latitude
      • Earth angled at 23.5 
      • Equator = MOST Sun (hottest)
      • Poles = Least / Most Uneven Sun (Coldest
      • Things in between = mix of hot and cold (storms)
      • Tilt = Seasons (more extreme farther N/S latitude)
    • Applying Latitude to Ocean and Wind
    • Landforms
      • Landforms can block clouds, affect rainfall.

    • Microclimates in San Diego County
