Once the Wisconsin Ice Sheet fully melted, the basic dimensions of the lake were fixed. However, the rocks we see today needed to rebound by about 170 m from the weight of the glacier ice. The last ice age gives Blackstone a surface area of about 5.2 km², a volume of 0.1 km³, a mean depth of just over 20 m, a perimeter of nearly 35 km. As the world 's climate entered a warm inter-glacial period, about 7000 years ago with Blackstone 's region being about 1°-2° C above the 20th century norm. With this climate shift the lake was again inundated with water during the Nipissing Phase.
North Dakota is the most rural of all the states, with farms covering more than 90% of the land. It’s known for its rich oil from fosses that were left behind after Lake Agassiz dried up. In the book North Dakota History by Neil Howe, he explains how during the last Ice Age, northern North America was covered by a glacier, which alternately advanced and deteriorated with variations in the climate. Before the Ice Age, North Dakota had a sub-tropical climate much like Florida is today. This continental ice sheet covered much of central North America between 30,000 and 10,000 years ago (Howe 33).
The flooding also brought up thick loess on either side of the river. The glacial floods created most of the familiar land forms that have come to define this river, the "dry" falls, mystifying basalt formations, giant ripple marks and unusual gravel bars. Also seen are shoreline and glacial features and processes in my vicinity. The climate in Riverside State Park has an Average Annual Precipitation of 17.62 inches. The Average Maximum Temperature is 85.8°F in July, whereas the Lowest Average Minimum Temperature is 23.9°F in January.
Greeting Fellow tourists My name is Moses Trotman and today i will be talking about the Canadian Shield .Did you know that the Canadian shield is a landform region that covers more than half of Canada ?, located in northeast Alberta, northern Saskatchewan, northern Manitoba, southern Northwest Territories, Ontario, Quebec, and Newfoundland. Weather and Climate The climate in the Canadian Shield region varies throughout the year. The Canadian Shield region gets 200-300 mm of rain in summer, and 1250-1500mm of snow in winter. The climate in this region can be described as having longer winters and shorter summers. Vegetation This region has lots of precipitation in Quebec and Labrador, which makes a good growing season.
Until January 23rd Long Island had a relatively mild winter: then Blizzard Jonas swept the Eastern Coast. Storm Jonas originated in the Midwest and moved eastwardly, mainly hitting the Mid-Atlantic territory. A total of 31 states received snow from Winter Storm Jonas. Of those states 14 received at least a foot of snow, and 6 received 30 or more inches. The blizzard was the second largest snowstorm on record in New York City’s history.
Climate Muncie, Indiana, gets around 41 inches of rain per year. The US average is about 39 inches. Snowfall is 23 inches. The average US city gets 26 inches of snow per year. The number of days with any measurable precipitation is 121 days.
Although the weather differs from north to south, all areas receive a large amount of precipitation. Heavily influenced by the Pacific Ocean, winters are severe and summers are moderate. Further south, there is less precipitation than up north. All year round, the temperature is often low. Natural
The arctic tundra biome is a biome located in the arctic circle, in such places as north Canada, Russia, Alaska, Iceland, Finland, and most of Greenland. Covering approximately 20% of the Earth 's land surface, the arctic tundra biome is the coldest biome on Earth, with winter temperatures averaging at -34°C (-30°F), and summer temperatures of around 3-12°C (37-54°F). The moderate summer temperature allows this icy biome to sustain life. Yearly precipitation is a low 15-25 centimetres (6-10 inches). The ground in a tundra biome has very low nutrients,which accounts for the low amount of plant life.
In Florida and Massachusetts, the average temperature in the summer is 82 degrees. However, the lowest temperature in Florida during the winter is 61 degrees. In contrast, the temperature during the winter in Massachusetts is 25 degrees. In the winter, Massachusetts gains less than 50 percent of sunshine. While Florida acquires about 60 percent of sunshine during the winter.
Climate Most of Northern European Russia and Siberia has a subarctic climate, with extremely severe winters in the inner regions of Northeast Siberia (mostly the Sakha Republic, where the Northern Pole of Cold is located with the record low temperature of −71.2 °C or −96.2 °F), and more moderate winters elsewhere. Both the strip of land along the shore of the Arctic Ocean and the Russian Arctic islands have a polar Language Russia's 160 ethnic groups speak some 100 languages. According to the 2002 Census, 142.6 million people speak Russian, followed by Tatar with 5.3 million and Ukrainian with 1.8 million speakers. Russian is the only official state language, but the Constitution gives the individual republics the right to establish their own state languages in addition to Russian. Despite its wide distribution, the Russian language is homogeneous throughout the country.
3 Waves predominantly from the north east populate the St. Augustine Inlet. This creates a net southerly, longshore sediment transport 1. The wave climate is seasonal with wave energy usually the greatest during the winter season3. Winter seasons usually have subtropical frontal passages occurring every three to seven days3. Typically the wave heights during the passages average from 1.2 to 1.8 m with mean wave periods of 9-12 seconds.
Alaska, the final Frontier Overview:- Occupying the position as the 49th state in the United States, Alaska which is also known as the final frontier shares its borders with the country of Canada with the southern region sharing its borders with the British Colombia regions of Canada. The Northern sides of the states are in proximity to the Beaufort seas which form the southern tip of the Arctic sea, while the western and southern regions of the state give away into the Pacific Ocean. The state is the fourth least populous with most of the population of over 750,000 residents of the state residing in the city of Anchorage which is the largest metropolitan region in the state. The climate is very cold owing to its close proximity to the Arctic with the economy being
Lake Superior has been at its modern elevation for only about 2,000 years, when elevations of Lake Michigan and Lake Huron dropped, creating a rapids at Sault Ste. Marie. Lake Superior has its origins in the North American Mid-Continent Rift of 1.1 to 1.2 billion years ago, which produced a huge plume of hot mantle where the present lake sits. The crust tore apart, leaving an arc-shaped scar stretching form Kansas through Minnesota, then down to Michigan. Within its borders, Lake Superior has both the thickest, and nearly the thinnest, crust found anywhere in North America.When European explorers visited Lake
Haiti 's Climate Average daily temperatures in Haiti fall between seventy and eighty degrees Fahrenheit. However, high temperatures have topped one hundred degrees, and lows have dipped to a frigid sixty degrees. At night, temperatures usually fall to ten to twenty degrees. According to USA Today 's website, "November through March is Haiti 's dry season" it also includes, "the average rainfall is about 3.5 inches" during this period. Typically, the driest month of the year in Haiti is January.
If we noticed it or not, our planet is warming up. All the way from North Pole to South Pole. Since 1906, the global average surface temperature has gone up from 1.1 to 1.6 degrees Fahrenheit, this is more noticeable in the polar regions. This effects of the rising temperatures isn’t to be taken lightly just because the average surface temperature has gone up by .5. The small change in heat is melting the glaciers, not just the north and south poles but mountain glaciers, ice sheets covering West Antarctica and Greenland, and Arctic sea ice.
