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