Transcript of Canada's Climate
6 Main factors affect climate:
W-inds and Air Masses
Near Water Remember, L-O-W-E-R -Near Water! Latitude Canada is a geographically large country
Lowest ->Pelee Island, ON 41°N
Highest ->Alert, NU 83° N Generally, As latitude increases, temperatures decrease
As latitude decreases, temperatures increase Energy from sun also a significant factor Ocean Currents Temperature of an ocean current affects air above it
Warm current + air = Warm moist air
Ex. BC's climate = Warm, moist weather
Due to warm North Pacific Current heating air above it Pelee Island = Warm, moist-like climate
Alert = Bitterly cold, dry conditions British Isles' climate mild and wet
Warmer than expected at its latitude Air Masses Large Volume of air that takes on traits of climate of where it was formed
(I.E. Northern arctic creates cold, dry air masses) Air moves from high to low pressure areas causing wind
