Transcript of Cold Climate

Cold Climate Polar Climate Continental Climate Precipitation Formation of precipitation in the middle latitudes usually includes ice and beings as snow at latitudes above the freezing level
Form of the precipitation reaching the surface depends on the temperature structure of the atmospheric layers precipitations goes through

It totals 6-10 inches of rain a year (including melted snow)
It is cold and dry in winter (Summer in the Southern polar regions)
It is wetter and more soggy in tge summer (Winter in the Southern polar regions)
It spans from most
Greenland to parts of
Alaska, Northern Canada,
and Northern Russia
Latitude Range: 60°N - 75°N
Temperature Winter
* Cold
* -29- -35°C

* Warmer but even the sun does not warm up that
* 6-10 weeks only
* Sun throughout 24 hours
* Maximum: 7-10 °C
Tundra: Ice Cap: Coldest temperature on earth
Located near poles (arctic and Antarctic)
High latitude causing low temperature = lack of sunlight
Sun never rises the horizon during "polar night"
Even sunlight reaches, it is reflected by the color of the snow and ice and the low angle of the sun reduces temperature
Never over freezing temperature
Temperature Mostly 30-55 degrees N
Winter = cold enough to snow because northern latitude
Summer = moderate precipitation
They exist where cold air masses infiltrate in winter, and warm air masses infiltrate in summer
Continental factors change as it gets closer to the equator or ocean
Range of temperature (day time)
Maximum: 7-32 °C
Minimum: -12 - 21 °C
Ice Cap: Winds Are dry
Are strong
people feel colder
Low pressure to high pressure
Bring the risk of frostbite
Are cooled down when it is warm
Bring rain when it is coming from the sea
Turns into snow
