Daylight Length Parker

  1. 1. Daylight Length
  2. 2. <ul><li>Every day the movement of the sun's disk, the appearance of the sun in the sky, appears, then disappears later, below the horizon. There is still a little bit of daylight when the sun is just slightly below the horizon. This is because the sun doesn't go away, the part of Earth that you are on just isn't directly facing the sun. </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>The length of daylight varies throughout the year and depends upon latitude. The higher the latitude in the northern hemisphere during winter, the lower in the sky the sun appears, and there are fewer hours of daylight. The lower the latitude for the southern hemisphere in the northern hemisphere summer (southern hemisphere winter), the lower the sun appears, and the less hours of daylight . </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>The tilt makes it so that when the Earth is revolving around the sun, different parts get different amounts of sunlight, therefore causing different daylight lengths.  At the summer solstice (which is about June 21-22) the northern hemisphere experiences days that range from slightly less than 12 hours of daylight to 24 hours. Therefore, the north pole is tilted toward the sun during the summer solstice. In the northern hemisphere, the higher the latitude, the shorter the daylight is during the winter. Between the winter and summer solstice, the length of each day increases. The higher the latitude the larger the rate of increase in daylight </li></ul>
