Hemispheres

Parent Category: Geography
The earth is divided by the equator and the meridian into four hemispheres: northern, southern, eastern and western.
At that time of year, the northern hemisphere is angled toward thethe sun so it gets more light and longer days.
Clockwise in Northern Hemisphere. Counterclockwise in Southern Hemisphere.
The Southern Hemisphere compass will naturally align it self with the South Pole answer 2 A compass designed to work in the southern hemisphere will have the needle/card balanced differently, for in the S hemisphere the S pole will cause the compass to dip slightly - and opposite to the...
The change can be measured and needs to be allowed for when making calculations in navigation.
There are four layers of vegetation in a rainforest. They areEmergent layer, canopy layer, understory layer and forest floor.
Be aware that Latin America includes Mexico, Central America, the Caribbean and South America. This means the whole region spans two hemispheres. With that being said, the hemispheres don't affect the climate at all. It however, reverses the seasons for those countries located on the southern...
yes, but in a cold habitat area.
Both, and not forgetting the Southern Hemisphere as well.
The South Pole is entirely in the southern hemisphere, and half inthe eastern hemisphere and half in the western hemisphere.
The equator is an imaginary line that runs around the middlesection of the earth. It is hotter there than at the north andsouth poles because the tilt of the earth on its axis causes theequatorial region to receive more direct sun rays than the poles.
In the winter the temperature stays at around -65 degrees Celsius. The highest temperature recorded was -13.6 degrees Celsius and the lowest was -82.8 degrees Celsius
Like North America and all islands in the Caribbean, Jamaica is in the Northern hemisphere. It is also in the Western hemisphere.
No. It's in the northern hemisphere.
It is in the Western and Northern hemisphere
MEDC = more economically developed country Well technically it isn't, Dubai is an emirate and a city within the United ArabEmirates, as such is not a country . The UAE as a whole can be considered to be a MEDC country though;it has a high GDP, well developed infrastructure,...
South America including Ecuador, Colombia and Brazil.
If standing on 0 latitude and longitude ( doesn't matter whichpole) the compass would go crazy
The Northern and Western Hemispheres.
the northen hemisphere doestnt have a sun so it isn't a planet and what is the northen hemisphere coz i am confused
southern has more water than northern xD
The north pole and the south pole are two sections of one line which is the earth's rotational axis. did you meant the area at the north pole? that's the Arctic
You can find the Trans-antarctic Mountain Range North and West ofthe South Pole.
what are three countries with the largest land areas in the western hemisphere
same as in the northen hemisphere . The average time from the September equinox to the December solstice is about 89 days and 20½ hours.
Answer . It drains straight... no spinning. I was recently at the equator in Kenya and they had a demo to show this. It was quite intriguing to witness!
There are no houses at the North Pole, in fact there is nothing, except a vast featureless ice sheet floating on the Arctic Ocean.
Depends on how you plan to travel. Anything from hours to weeks.
since it is really hot in central africa, you would need lighter clothing there.
The north pole gets no sunlight in winter - meaning it's dark even at noon..
The country Taiwan is located in the Northern Hemisphere.
The North Pole is not located in any country as it is in the Arctic Ocean.
Roughly 69 miles, it varies a little because of the earth's shape.
The axis of rotation of the Earth puts the poles at a less direct angel facing the sun.
Southern and western hemispheres
There are two, Australia and Antarctica.
\nActually no. Magnetic north shifts over time. It has to do with the rotation of the liquid iron inside the earth. I can't remember the exact number but I think you can estimate true north by adding 5 degrees to your compass.
The Tropic of Cancer is about 23 degrees north latitude and the Tropic of Capricorn is 23 degrees south. They signify the highest and lowest latitudes in which the sun appears directly overhead.
The South Pole has a desert climate, almost never receiving anyprecipitation. Air humidity is near zero. You probably mean to ask if Antarctica is a desert, because thesouth pole is just one tiny dot out in the middle. Yes, Antarctica is considered a desert, the largest and coldestdesert in the...
\nMore Than "almost." the sun hits right on the equator. In fact, if you have a flagpole on the equator, there will be no shadow at noon. But the equator is not the only place where this happens. This happens Up to the tropics (tropic of cancer and tropic of Capricorn).
The Earths tilt is such that the northern hemisphere is pointing away from the sun more in the winter. The northern hemisphere receives less solar energy as the suns rays hit the earth surface at shallower angles during this time.
Mexico and the rest of the Americas form the Western Hemisphere.Mexico is north of the equator, so is also in the NorthernHemisphere.
Ask Your Momma! BURN ;D You Weirdo You Should Just Look It Up In Your Book Instead Of Asking On Internet You Little Kid. And Dont Think Fighting With ME Helps Cause Im 18 And Even I Know This.
The American explorer Frederick Albert Cook stated that he reached the North Pole in 1908, but his claim is not widely accepted. The conquest of the North Pole is traditionally credited to American Navy engineer Robert Edwin Peary, who claimed to have reached the Pole on April 6, 1909 but Peary's...
matthew henson is so important because he was the first person ever to be in the north pole he also traveled with peary henson
The north pole is defined as the meeting place of the earth's axis of rotation and the surface. It wasn't really "formed" except when the earth started spinning. Maybe you mean the magnetic north pole. Earth's magnetic field is generated and maintained by rotating molten iron in the earth's outer...
It has to do with the tilt of the earth with respect to it's orbit plane. In the months of April to September the northern half of the globe faces the sun and the southern half is dark. During the rest of the year it's reversed.
The north pole is the place where the axis of rotation meets theearth's surface in the northern hemisphere. It's in the middle ofthe Arctic Ocean, north of Alaska, Canada, Greenland, and Russia. You can stand at the north pole because there is a permanent icecover there in the ocean, and the ice...
Yes, Lisbon, Portugal is in the northern hemisphere.
No. If the earth's axis of rotation was perpendicular to its orbit plane, the earth would be like spring or autumn all year round and the north pole would stay in a perpetual state of dusk or dawn. Sunlight would be constant, but dim.
Other than the South Pole in Antarctica, the southernmost point is Cape Horn in South America, which is the closest point of any continent to Antarctica proper (Larsen Ice Shelf).
Over Water, the equator and prime meridian meet over the Gulf of Guinea in the Atlantic ocean a few hundred kilometers off the coast of Africa, about 385 miles south of Accra, Ghana, and 650 miles west of Libreville, Gabon. Also the international date line (180 meridian) and the equator meet over...
Detroit is in the northern hemisphere, the half of the earth above the equator that includes the North Pole.
The sun is north of the equator for 6 months every year, and south of the equator during the other 6 months. In order to accomplish these gyrations, it crosses the equator twice a year ... on March 21 moving north, and on September 22 moving south.
The South Pole is the farthest point south.
You have that the wrong way around, the South Pole is on Antarctica.
All penguins can be found in the Southern Hemisphere.
The Coriolis Effect is an apparent deflection of moving objects when they are viewed from a rotating reference frame. Moving objects on the surface of the Earth experience a Coriolis force, and appear to veer to the right in the northern hemisphere, and to the left in the southern hemisphere.
Who could know? There are many mysterious things in this world. Or you could just work out how many days there are in the Winter Months (mainly considered November+December) work out how many hours are in there etc!
No its in the eastern Europe but still the western hemisphere.
The Arctic is the region you will find the North Pole on.
The two continents that are located entirely within the SouthernHemisphere are Antarctica and Australia. Antarctica has the PrimeMeridian that runs through the continent and is also located in theWestern and Eastern Hemispheres.
All fifty states of the United States are above the Tropic ofCapricorn. The Tropic of Capricorn runs horizontally around theworld, cutting just below center of South America. The UnitedStates lies in the Tropic of Cancer.
There are seven continents in the world. Among the seven,Antarctica is on the southernmost of the Earth and it includes theSouth Pole.
The North Pole is on the surface of the Earth - percentage doesn't come into it.
