What determines climate in an area?
Is determined by long-term averages of temperature and rainfall.
The two most important factors in the climate of an area are temperature and precipitation. The yearly average temperature of the area is obviously important, but the yearly range in temperature is also important. Some areas have a much larger range between highest and lowest temperature than other areas.
People settle were there are certain resources. The climate determines were those resources are.It can be seen in all over the world mostly people live in plain areas. reason is that in plain areas mostly climate is moderate. Even if we look at global pattern of settlement we will see that mostly people in temperate regions rather than severe cold or hot climate. So, yes the climate affects settlement patterns of an area.
The Earth has three major climate zones. The location and latitude are what mainly determines the zoning. Temperatures that are freezing are always coldest and is considered the area known as the north climate zone. Other zones that are not considered the north temperature zone are what makes up the southern temperature zone.
On a large scale, yes. Geography affects climate, and climate determines how prone an area is to tornadoes. On a smaller scale, mountainous terrain can interfere with a storm's organization, making it harder for it to produce tornadoes. However, once a tornado forms it can pass over hills and mountains without being affected.
