The air descends dry and hot to create a desert on the leeward side of the range. including forests of towering Sequoia trees, but on the east side is the Great Basin, a desert known for its sagebrush and tumbleweeds. Wrap-Up Factors besides latitude have a large effect on the climate of a region. The presence or absence of a nearby ocean will determine if the climate is moderate, as with a maritime climate, or if it is more extreme, as with a continental climate. The temperature of the nearby ocean currents also influence nearby climate.

This is the reason the sky is blue. If the particles do not absorb any wavelengths, the scattered light appears white. 23 24 Atmosphere Clouds appear white because tiny water droplets scatter all wavelengths of light. As clouds grow larger and taller, much of the incoming sunlight is reflected and less light penetrates through. This is why the base of a large cloud appears dark. The cloud appears even darker if the droplets at its base grow large enough to absorb rather than scatter light. This often happens before the drops fall to the Earth as rain.

Conduction is the transfer of heat through a substance that has different temperatures in different parts. Because warm atoms and molecules move more vigorously than cold ones, the particles in the warmer region strike their neighbors, transferring heat until it is evenly distributed. Convection transfers heat by the movement of currents. Think of a room with a floor heater. As the air near the heater becomes warmer, the air’s density decreases and it rises. The air near the ceiling is pushed sideways by the rising air.
