There is a great difference between the windward and leeward side of a mountain. Windward and leeward sides are opposites.
The difference is that windward gets more rain, is wetter, and is the side of the mountain that is closest to the ocean. On the other hand the leeward is the farthest from shore and is drier but still gets rain.
Leeward and windward are the two sides of a mountain or structure. Leeward is the side sheltered from the wind, and windward is the side that absorbs the wind.
The climate on the leeward side of a mountain differs from that on the windward side mostly in
Rainfall on the windward and leeward sides of a mountain differ in the amount, whereby the windward side receives more rainfall.
It is called the 'windward side', the other side is called the 'leeward side'. The windward side is wet and the leeward side is dry.
it becomes a leeward.
More snow would be expected to fall on the windward side of the mountain than the leeward side. This is because the windward side of the mountain receives the most rain.
The windward side is cooler due to wind-chill.
The leeward side of a mountain is the side that is not exposed to wind or rain, the other side being the windward side.
the wind left his all moisture on windward side.
windward and leeward side(:
Windward is where the wind is coming from and leeward is where the wind is going to. So if you want to beach your boat on a relatively safe shore, you would want to beach your craft on the leeward side of a particular island, where it is sheltered from the wind.
rain shadows usually occur on the leeward side of the mountain ranges.
there will be a lower air pressure on the windward side causing more storms and a greater humidity
Actually the windward side has higher precipitation, the leeward side is a drier place
A dry area on a mountain side. Rain shadow effect relates to leeward of mountain
The direction of the winds.
It is the sloped side of a mountain that is colder and gets more rain. Why? Because the leeward side is the opposite of the windward side and is also dryer because when the clouds climb the mountain range (windward side) they loses all their water so there is none left for the leeward side.
The windward side of the mountain is where in (North America) the windward side of the mountain has an ocean climate condition and the leeward side has a dry climate. This is because of the dry air lapse rate. When a parcel of air rises it cools and when it goes down it does the opposite the parcel of air warms. So, for example, if the wind passes the windward side of the mountain it rises and cools the air around it. Therefore it will have more precipitation. Then the air rises over the mountain and the drops down and warms on the leeward side. This makes the leeward side of the mountain have a dry climate.
the answer would be polar
the taiga biome can be on either side of a mountain
