What factors determine climate?

The factors are:-

1. Distance from the sea

2. Ocean currents

3. Direction of prevailing winds

4. Relief

5. Proximity to the equator

6. The El Nino phenomenon

7. Recently it has accepted that Human activity is also affecting climate.

8. Location

or...

1. Latitude - Distance north or south of equator

2. Altitude - Distance above or below sea level

3. Global Winds - What winds are blowing/where they're coming from/warm or cold

4. Ocean currents - What currents are coming in/where from

5. Topography - Distance from mountains (how close they are)

6. Distance From Water - How close the area is to and ocean or lake (any body of water)

These are the main most important 6.
latitude, prevailing winds, mountains, large bodies of water, and ocean currents.
Precipitation, latitude, trapping of heat, winds and ocean currents, shape and elevations of land masses. (Prentice Hall Biology)

near water

A:The factors that determine climate are latitude, distance from water, elevation, and ocean currents A:it is sun, location, water, wind, and mountains.
Lattitude

The factors that determine climate are temperature, precipitation, altitude, location, latitude, tilt of the axis, surface currents, winds, and elevation.
The latitude, the transportation of heat by winds and ocean currents
Latitude, Altitude, Mountain Barriers, Ocean Currents, Land-Water Relationship, and Prevailing Winds.
five factors that determine climate is elevation, latitude, weather, ,and biome

What is arid biome?

Arid means the climate, where more water condenses than rain is falling. So it's a dry biome.

What is a dilemma zone?

When approaching a signalized intersection at high speeds and the light turns yellow, the dilemma zone is the space from the intersection to the point on the road where it may be difficult for the driver to discern whether they should run the yellow light or brake to be safe.

Why can some animals stay under the ground without eating during cold months?

Because they eat a lot of food which they store as fat in their bodies, so they don't have to come out of the ground. They gradually break down the fat for energy.

What do people of desert eat?

Millions upon millions of people around the world live in deserts and the vast majority (over 99%) live in cities and towns where food is readily available in stores and markets or restaurants. I live in the Chihuahuan Desert and have a Wal*Mart SuperCenter a half mile from my home where I can purchase nearly any food I desire. There are also a number of restaurants and fast food establishments within a short walking distance of my home. For those who live far from a town or city, many of them grow at least part of their own food and purchase other food items when they make an occasional trip into town to stock up on supplies. My home also has indoor running water but I am also able to purchase bottled water at the Wal*Mart close to my home. The same is available to most others who live in deserts.

What is the average temperature in the amazon forest?

The Amazon has a tropical climate, so it is warm all year and very wet (when it isn't raining, it is still very humid). The temperature is typically in the 80's during the day and doesn't often get below 70 at night.

Which biome has the highest net radiation budget value?

It's actually the rain forest because that is the biome closest to the equator, meaning that it has a net radiation budget surplus (more solar radiation is absorbed than reflected/re-emitted as infrared radiation), unlike the biomes closer to the poles which will have a net radiation budget deficit (more infrared radiation is re-emitted/reflected than solar radiation that is absorbed).

What animals live in a meadow?

Cows, horses, sheep, ducks, llamas, alpacas, buffalo, birds, moles, rabbits, most bugs, voles, worms, and if there is a stream in the meadow, you also have to consider fish and other types of smaller aquatic animals. Birds which live in or near meadows include sparrows, finches, hawks and other birds of prey.

What does it mean if your lips peel all year round?

It means you get chapped lips easily. Just wear more chapstick to protect your lips. In addition, avoid licking them. That might make it feel better short term, but in the long run, it makes it worse.

Are fingernails biotic or abiotic?

A finger nail is biotic because a finger nail is actually living considering a lot of celluar activities take place, but abiotic factors are normally sunlight, wind, water, and etc.

What are the biotic and abiotic factors in a savanna?

The biotic factors of a tropical savanna includes vegetation that is dominated by different types of tall grasses with some shrubs and trees. The animals tend to be bigger than in the jungles.

The abiotic factors of the tropical savanna include frequent fires from seasonal lightning, seasonal rainfall, times of drought and times of great rains, high temperatures, and a compact soil.

What they mean

Abiotic factors are chemical and physical factors of the environment like climate and soil type - 'non biology'

  • Solar energy input is affected by season, cloud cover and changes in the Earth's orbit.
  • Light is important for plants for photosynthesis, for seed germination and for the behaviour of animals like reproduction time
  • Climate are rainfall, wind and high temperature
  • Topography are the surface of the land like height of mountains, the positions of the slopes that affect drainage and the behaviour of organism
  • Oxygen availability
  • Edaphic is connected with the soil like the pH of the soil, mineral salt of soil, the soil texture for example sandy soils are well drained and dry out quickly in hot weather but are never water logged in wet weather. Clay soils don't drain and restrain water in hot weather but are waterlogged in wet weather. The edaphic factors affect the plant distribution
  • Pollution in the air, water land
  • Catastrophes are like earth quakes that disrupt the conditions

Biotic factors are things done by organisms like predation and competition - 'living'

  • Competition like for food, habitat and mates can be either interspecific (between species) or intraspefic (within species)
  • Mutualism is the relation between partners
  • Grazing, predation, parasitism is the relationship between 2 species where one benefit from the other

Biotic factors are density dependent which describes the factors that affect the size of the population relative to the area of the land. The bigger the population the greater the competition for food, habitat due to less land.

Example- poor weather can reduce the number of animals that can have a nock on affect for predators. If the pH on the soil fails then it can affect the bacteria living there and the rate of decomposition will change
