Factors affecting climate

  1. 1. The day to day conditions. It is raining outside… The weather conditions over time. Cold Winters. Weather or climate video.
  2. 2. Everest. The higher the relief, the lower the temperature, about 0.6C for each 100 metres.
  3. 3. Antarctica. Some surfaces reflect more heat than others. Ice reflects heat, Earth and Ocean retain heat.
  4. 4. Sea heats up slowly and cools slowly. Land heats up quickly and cools quickly.
  5. 5. In Summer the sea takes longer to heat up, places near the sea will be slightly cooler. But land heats up quickly, places in the centre of large landmasses will be very warm. The opposite happens in winter.
  6. 6. FACTORS INFLUENCING CLIMATE LATITUDE
  7. 7. At the Poles the sun’s rays covered a larger surface area, therefore heating is less efficient. At the Equator, the sun’s rays covered a smaller surface area, therefore heating is more efficient. At the Equator the sun’s rays also have to travel through less of the Earth’s atmosphere, therefore more heat energy reaches earth.
  8. 8. Also known as the North Atlantic Drift. A current of warm water that travels from the Gulf of Mexico. This, along with the prevailing South- Westerly wind, enables a relatively warmer climate compared to areas on the same latitude.
  9. 9. Also known as the North Atlantic Drift. A current of warm water that travels from the Gulf of Mexico. This, along with the prevailing South- Westerly wind, enables a relatively warmer climate compared to areas on the same latitude.
