Transcript of Climate Factors
Climate factors are what affects the climate on Earth, different regions have different climates.
The Equator is more hot because the rays are more closer and more intense.
In the poles, the rays of the sun are less intense, so it is colder in the north and south poles.
The Earth is on a 23.5 Degree tilt, so there that is why there are seasons.
1 Orbit around Sun = 365.25 days
1 Earth rotation = 1 day
The Coriolis effect causes hurricanes to spin because the Coriolis is created by the Earth's rotation on the axis making the traveling of the wind of the hurricane spin either counter-clockwise in the north or clockwise in the south. The eye of the hurricane has low pressure while the place with lots of air winds has high pressure. In the north the direction of things curve to the right, and in the south they curve to the left. Also in the Earth spins at 1600km/sec in the equator and much slower in the poles.
Since warm air rises, and cool air sinks, usually your lower floors are colder than your top floors, causing different climates. Air pressure is also involved.
The higher you go the less air molecules there are, so there are no molecules to absorb the suns' rays. Therefore it gets colder the higher you go.
Places near large bodies of water have cool winters and warm summers. While places not near large bodies of water have cold winters and hot summers.
This happens because bodies of water keeps the temperature of the atmosphere and then releases after about 6 months. So the hot air from the summer would be released into the winter when it is cold and the other away around.
Currents from the equator are warm and flow to the poles while currents from the poles are cold and flow to the equator.
These currents affect the climate
near coastal areas.
If you live near mountains, there is more rain than living not near the mountains.
Hurricanes are made mainly by the Coriolis effect and the rotation of Earth. There is lots of humid air, and in the eye there is no winds. The strongest winds are from the right side. Hurricanes usually form in June to November.
