Transcript of Mountain Climate

Mountain Climate
The higher, the colder.
Although there are mountains all over the world and have different climates ranges, all mountains will be snowy at the top,if they are high enough in the atmosphere. Most mountain temperatures will range from 23 to 50 degrees Fahrenheit. This happens because the higher up in the atmosphere you go, the air becomes so thin that it cannot hold enough heat to melt the snow. Also, when the sun is shining, it is hitting the mountain at an angle, so it isn't directly heating the top of the mountain. therefore, the higher up you go on a mountain, the colder and snowier it will get!
Question 1- How do mountains affect climate?
Answer- one side of the mountain will always get a lot of rain, while the other will not get barley at all because all of the rain was emptied out of the cloud on the other side of the mountain.
Question 2-What makes mountains so cold all the time?
Answer-The air can hold less heat the higher up you go.
When the air around a mountain rises, it will cool and condense around it, it will cool around the mountain a lot faster because of the higher altitude and the cooler environment. this will cause there to be a lot of precipitation around the mountain.
Some mountains have very small amounts of soil, while others have an abundance of it. The soil needs organic matter for new trees and plants to grow. Such as in the Appalachian mountains, there is a moderate climate. As a result, there is a well balanced moisture content in the soil, and there is also high organic matter. Also, the soil there is made from heavily weathered Shale, Sandstone, and Siltstone.
Soil Quality
Scientists classify mountains as a land form that rises at least 1,000 ft. above the surrounding area. Thirty of the highest mountains lie in the Himalayas, one of which is the highest mountain in the whole world called Mt. Everest.
