The Alexander Archipelago is a coastal temperate rain forest. It draws nourishment from the cycling of water between land and sea. Pacific weather fronts bumping up against the Coast Mountains spend themselves as rain at lower elevations and as snow in the high country. Some parts of the forest receive more than 200 inches of rain each year. The forest that grew up on these islands is a mosaic of muskeg, alpine scrub and lichen-draped conifer rainforest.
Luckily, there are oases, rivers, an ocean nearby, and relief from mountainous areas that make sure the park is not too dry. However, I have drawn more land than water in my poster to indicate fewer regions of water which shows the dry climate. To further add, because of the cold temperatures in this park, if it rains, the rain will most likely turn to snow (depicted on the ground and the mountainous regions of my poster). In addition, in the summer, the temperatures get a bit warmer (depicted on the left side of my poster). This means that in June, there will be a bit of snow, but July and August will be the only months without snow lying on the ground.
El Mapais is a United States National Monument located in western New Mexico. There are a multitude of plants and vegetation on the various terrains of El Mapais. There is everything from dessert conditions to areas with lava on the ground. With altitudes ranging up to over 11,000 feet many different species are able to grow here (Geology of National Parks). Along the side of the lava flow you will find short grass prairies in the lower elevations of the mountain.
Their summers were very warm and rainy, and in the winters, it was a mild climate so it did not get very cold. There were long growing seasons. Also, the Southern Colonies had long plains, some hilly regions, long rivers, and low, flat farmland. Like the Southern and Middle Colonies, the New England Colonies had some hills, but that is the only similarity of climate and geography between all of these Colonies. The New England Colonies had short and mild summers and the winters were long and cold.
Similarities and defenses in the new england and southern. There’s many similarities in the southern and new england. They both have the appalachian mountains bordering west. They both have fishing industries. They both have coastlines on the arctic.these are the similes in the new england and southern.
How that is happening is the acid in the rain erodes the rock but it is not dangerous acid to us humans. When the rock gets eroded then it turns into ions which is an atom or molecule. When these ions are made they get carried away rivers or runoff streams and they usually end in the ocean. When these ions end up in the ocean they dissolved and there is two ions, chloride and sodium and they take up 90 percent out of all the dissolved ions in the ocean. Chloride and sodium are salty so that is why there is a lot of salt in the ocean.
CLIMATE Yosemite is famous for it’s “Mediterranean” climate with most precipitation occurring during the winters. Other months are nearly dry, with less than 3% precipitation during the Spring Summer and Fall,. Average temperatures range from 25 °F (−4 °C) to 53 °F (12 °C) at Tuolumne Meadows at 8,600 feet. At elevations below 5,000 feet, temperature is comparatively warm. The mean daily temperature at Yosemite Valley (elevation 3,966 feet or 1,209 metres) varies from 46 - 90 °F (8 to 32 °C).
They have been found living in the northern states of the United States, such as, North Dakota, Minnesota, Alaska, Washington, Montana and Wisconsin. They have also been found living in the western and southwestern provinces of Canada, including, British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. The Northern Flying Squirrel prefers a very uncommon habitat. “The Northern Flying Squirrel lives in dense conifer or mixed conifer and deciduous forests.” (www.nhptv.org). This meaning that they live in extremely thick forests, due to the fact that they spend most of their life in trees and require a lot of cover and protection.
There are billions of people in the world, split up into thousand of cultures, some entirely different while others only have a language that differs. However, lots are very unique, particularly the Yup'ik Alaska Native and Australian Aboriginal cultures. Both cultures have their own history, spiritual beliefs, and even small aspects like clothes, language, trade, etc. Even with drastically different environments, they are still surprisingly both hunter-gatherer societies. The most noticeable difference between Yup'ik culture and Aboriginal culture, is the clothes that they wear.
Juneau is surrounded by a few large bodies of water such as the Gastineau channel, the Favorite channel and a few other bays and inlets. This affects the climate of Juneau because water has a very high specific heat, which means that it takes a lot of energy to raise the temperature one degree. Due to being on the coast of a large body of water, the temperature of Juneau doesn’t vary much because the water near or surrounding the city takes longer to heat up and longer to cool down than land masses, so cities near water tend to have less
It is not very populated, some major cities being Lubbock and Amarillo. This region is as dry and hot as the rest of Texas but gets snow. Its northern location in the Panhandle allows for cooler temperatures. There are many uses for this land, such as farming and cattle. This region also includes Midland and Odessa, two oil-rich cities known around the country for their oil, proving the variety of resources in the vast Texas.
They lived on the Labrador peninsula north of the mouth of the St. Lawrence river. The peninsula was separated into three main districts: the atlantic coast, the Ungava district, and the east coast of the Hudson bay. The climate of the Labrador peninsula was harsh and cold. “The lowest recorded temperature is 55 degrees below zero, although the actual range is probably greater. The temperature rarely rises above 80 degrees, even during the brief three months summer”(Hawkes 1916:26).
