Anchorage, Alaska, USA
What is a mountain and how are they mountain formed?
Mountains are a type of landforms that elevates over surrounding land, it is a much larger and steeper version of a hill. Mountain Alyeska was formed by shifting tectonic plates causing them to crash into each other, creating a collision that lifts up the plates and climate and natural disasters help shape mountains and land.
What effects Climate?
The latitude and longitude of where the city is placed plays a crucial role in the temperature. Since Anchorage is in the northern hemisphere and further away from the equator, it will be colder. Also if the city if further away from sun exposure, due to the angle of the sun and the earth and where it is placed, it will be colder.
