Transcript of Weather, Climate, and Earth’s Position

Weather, Climate, and Earth’s Position
Earth’s Position
Earth’s Position
-Tilt Earth is tilted 23 degrees

-Equator gets direct sunlight which makes it the hottest place

-Equinox and Solstice the Earth is Perpendicular

-Rotation occurs every 24 hours

-Revolution occurs every 365 days or on a leap year 366 days
Effects of the Sun
-The Sun’s energy affects both weather and climate patterns on Earth.

-About half of the Sun’s energy that reaches Earth is reflected back into space or Absorbed.

(Atmosphere) The trapped energy is known as greenhouse gas.

-greenhouse is natural affect

-global warming is man made effect
Air Pressure
-affects global wind patterns

-Winds move heat and cold across Earth’s surface horizontally

-The fastest of these high-speed westerly winds are called the jet streams.
-Currents are great rivers of seawater which carry warm water from the equator and cold water from the polar area.

-The Gulf Stream, along the U.S. East Coast, is an example of a warm current. This current keeps Europe at moderate temperatures
Water Vapor
-without there would be no clouds, rain, or storms.

-There are four common forms of precipitation. They are rain, snow, sleet, and hail.
High Elevation
-latitudinal regions

-the higher the topography the colder it becomes

-Mountains influence climates through the orographic effect. Rain shadow the mountain blocks rain on one side therefore making one side greener then the other.
-is the community of plants and animals in an area also known as a biome
