areas that extend form about 66.5 degrees to 90 degrees north and south latitudes
the side of the mountain that is downwind
sea and land breezes over a large region that change direction with the season
areas located form about 23.5 degrees to 66.5 degrees north and south latitudes
5 things that cause climate
1. prevailing winds
4. ocean currents
5. distances from large bodies of water
Alaska is in the polar zone which doesn't get direct sun light because its a lower angle. this is because of its altitude.
the mountains have winds coming from the west and once the precipitation gets to the mountains the rain or snow falls on the west side. little precipitation is on the east of the mountains.
ocean currents affects the west coast. since those states are next to the large body of water it brings cooler climates.
explain how Earth's tilted axis causes the season
the earths tilted axis as it revolves around the sun affects the seasons. the axis is tilted at 23.5 degrees. an example is in June the Northern Hemisphere gets more direct sunlight, and the Southern Hemisphere is experiencing winter.
at what times of the year do both of earths hemisphere receive the same amount of energy form the sun? explain why this occurs.
in March and September both of the hemispheres receive the same amount of energy from the sun. this is because neither end of the axis is tilted toward the sun.
