What would seasons be like if earth's axis were tilted at a higher angle more than 23.5?

The seasons would be more extreme, as in higher high and lower low temperatures. There would also be an increase in weather severity.

What might be the effect on seasons if the earths orbit became more elliptical and at the same time the angle of the tilt of Earth's axis increased?

A lot would depend on "How much?" additional tilt and eccentricity of the orbit. The Earth's axis of rotation is currently 23 and change degrees "tilted" to the ecliptic, the (MORE)

How would the general circulation of air appear in summer and winter if the earth were tilted on its axis at an angle of 45 degrees instead of 23.5 degrees?

The ITCZ would shift further north in the northern summer and  further south in the northern winter. Similarly the subtropical  highs and polar fronts would shift further fr (MORE)

What would e the effect on Earths seasons if the axis were tilted at 28.5 instead of 23.5?

The seasons would intensify, and the Summer would be hotter, and the Winter be colder. This would make for a completely different environment, since the change would be larger (MORE)

How does the earth's tilted axis cause seasons?

it isn't the earths tilted axis that causes the seasons but curcuit that we travel the sun, for example during winter we are further away from the sun and during summer we are (MORE)

What is the angle of tilt of Earth's axis?

Earth's axis of rotation is currently tilted  23.439 degrees measured from the perpendicular to the Ecliptic.    Earth's axial tilt varies from 22.1° to 24.5° over a 4 (MORE)

What would happen if the earth's axis were straight up and down at zero degrees instead of tilted at 23.5 degrees?

Basically, if the Earth were not tilted, the same amount of sun would fall on all parts of the Earth each day of the year. The polar regions would continue receiving less sola (MORE)

How does the tilt of earth's axis cause the seasons?

The Earth's axis is tilted from perpendicular to the plane of the ecliptic by 23.45°. This tilting is what gives us the four seasons of the year - spring, summer, autumn (fal (MORE)

What would our seasons be like if earths axis were not tilted?
