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)

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 do the tilt of Earth's axis and earth's movement around the sun cause seasons?

The distance between the sun and the earth gives real meaning to temperature. We revolve around the sun in an oval-like pattern. At the furthest part we're in winter, we have (MORE)

Would Earth have seasons if it were not tilted on its axis?

because the earth is tilted, the sun's rays today hits more directly at either the northern or southern hemisphere at different times of the year.    If the earth had no (MORE)

Why earth's axis is tilted?

The simple answer is: A large mass collided into baby Earth billions of years ago. The long answer: The collision resulted in two things: The first being the axis being tilt (MORE)

How would the seasons be different if earth were not tilted on its axis?

The seasons would only vary with the distance of Earth from the Sun (summer when closer, winter when farther away). This would not be as great a difference since the differenc (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)

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)
