  1. tundra
  2. temperate forests
  3. prevailing winds
  4. savanna
  5. doldrums
  1. a An area of calm or very light winds caused by moist air at the equator rising due to being heated by the direct rays of the sun.
  2. b Major global air movements, resulting from the rising and falling of air masses and Earth's rotation.
  3. c The biome located in the Arctic surrounding the North Pole and Alpine meadows, characterized by very long, cold, harsh winters and minuscule summers. Ground is covered in permafrost most of the year.
  4. d (Aka deciduous forests/broadleaf forests) Biomes in midlatitude regions where the moisture is sufficient enough to support the growth of large trees. Temperatures range from very cold in the winter to hot in the summer, with average rainfall around 75 to 150 cm.
  5. e A biome dominated by grasses and scattered trees with a year-round warm temperature. The soil is poor and there is a lack of moisture. Rainfall is is around 30-50 cm per year.

5 Multiple Choice Questions

  1. Treeless grasslands found in regions with relatively cold winters and average between 25 and 75 cm of rainfall a year.
  2. Submerged parts of continents.
  3. River-like flow patterns in the oceans caused by the prevailing winds, the planet's rotation, unequal heating of surface waters, and the locations and shapes of the continents.
  4. (Aka rainforest) These biomes occur in equatorial areas where the temperature is warm and the days are 11-12 hours long year-round. Rainfall is variable (200-400 cm per year) and the amount of organism diversity is extremely high.
  5. Continuously frozen subsoil.

5 True/False Questions

  1. estuaryThe biome located in the Arctic surrounding the North Pole and Alpine meadows, characterized by very long, cold, harsh winters and minuscule summers. Ground is covered in permafrost most of the year.

          

  2. intertidal zoneThe zone below the photic zone in the ocean, comprising of the twilight zone (200 to 1,000 m) and the lightless zone that is below 1,000 meters.

          

  3. trade windsDry air that descends and spreads back toward the equator; these cooling winds dominate the equator.

          

  4. coniferous forests(Aka taiga) A biome found south of the Arctic Circle dominated by cone-bearing evergreen trees such as spruce, pine, fir, and hemlock. They have long, cold winters and short, wet summers, with considerable precipitation.

          

  5. chaparralA biome dominated by grasses and scattered trees with a year-round warm temperature. The soil is poor and there is a lack of moisture. Rainfall is is around 30-50 cm per year.
