It has lake effect snow and high winds. This is a rare type of blizzard. Lake effect snow is produced during cooler weather and moves across long areas of warmer lake water. This warms the lower layer of air which picks up water vapor from the lake. Then, it rises through the cold air above and it freezes.It is placed on the downwind shores.
Two factors that affect Nashville’s climate are the proximity to water and the urban island effect. The Cumberland River, which winds through the heart of Nashville, is one factor that affects Nashville’s climate. The Cumberland River begins in Harlan County, KY and flows for 688 miles before joining with the Ohio River northwest of Paducah, KY. Water bodies provide a source of moisture for the land masses and have a moderating affect on the climates of the land masses near them. In the summer the water from the Cumberland River acts like an air conditioner to keep the air temperatures cool and in the winter, the water acts like a heater to keep the temperatures from getting too cold. On a sunny day, the land absorbs heat from the sun more quickly than the water does.
Geography has a lot to do with the shaping of Mendocino for a few different reasons. One reason is of the Pacific Ocean being so nearby. The Pacific Ocean causes the town to have snow either on extremely rare occasions or not at all. This also causes there to be fog constantly. Another reason is climate.
How the landscape and soil shape middle,new england and southern colonies New England ; the Soil in the New England region is quite rocky, hilly, and shallow. It made England hard to plant and export cash crops England was by the Atlantic ocean. The land in New England was shaped by glaciers. During the Ice Age, thick sheets of ice cut through the mountains. Glaciers pushed rocks and rich soil south.
2. Ocean currents affect climate because it 's temperature affects the temperature of the air that passes over it.Therefore, that air can get hotter or cooler which might give a certain region a milder or damper climate. 2. a) For example, since the Labrador Current flows southward from the Arctic, it makes the air of coastal locations in Labrador
On page 191, Hosseini uses imagery to appeal to the reader’s senses and create a more realistic setting. Baba’s study is described, and it’s mentioned that Amir can smell the sweetbrier-scented breeze. This, along with description of the “twin columns of smoke” that are coming from Baba and Rahim Khan, creates a calm and pleasant setting for the audience to imagine. Further down on the page, a different setting is introduced. Golden Gate Park is described with imagery that appeals to the reader’s visual senses, such as the sun sparkling on the water or the miniature boats on the lake.
The North's climate is temperate with humid summers and crisp icy winters. The north struggles with farming due to the cold templates and short growing seasons for farms. Luckily, the north has clear, fast rivers as well as coastlines full of lagoons. This allowed for masses of towns and cities to thrive from trading over these waterways; hence, many cities developed near said rivers and bays. With the waterways, these cities gradually became world trading centers.
There is water on three sides of the city, so the weather significantly affected by cold ocean currents, which leads to the presence of microclimates in the region. The rainy season lasts from November to March, and it snows very rarely. At the end of the summer and from September to October, the city, especially its western regions, suffers from the fog that cannot fall off during the day. This feature of the San Francisco climate the townspeople were able to turn into a tourist attraction. However, peculiarities of the lithosphere of the city can scare the newcomer.
Landslides have historically have had an impact on the town. The harsh winter climate that Juneau faces causes permafrost. Permafrost when thawed can cause serious landslides. Between permafrost and human activity landslides in Juneau occur frequently. In the city of Juneau landslides are common but are often very minor.
More specifically, the emphasis will be on two major cities in the Coastal Bend of South Texas: Corpus Christi and Galveston. In a brief, yet concise manner, these two cities will be compared to Houston, the closest and largest metropolitan city to us. Found in areas that “are largely arid and treeless” (Neilsen-Gammon 4), these two cities are relatively near the water; consequently, the weather varies from other regions in Texas due to the structure and circulation of the ocean. Furthermore, Neilsen-Gammon firmly establishes that “the Gulf of Mexico provides a source of warm, moist air throughout the year” (4). Nonetheless, at times, the hot temperatures cause devastating weather events which impact the
The climate in this region can be described as having longer winters and shorter summers. There is a wide variety of wildlife in the canadian shield landform. Some of these animals include the Peregrine Falcon, the Golden Eagle, Barren Ground Caribou, and the Arctic Fox. These animals live in this region because they can stand the cooler
