Natural Climatic variability: with emphasis on how it might affect climate change. -effects of land masses and water bodies on climate -effects of latitude and longitude and elevation (topography). -effects of Earth's mean temperatures, with emphasis on how changes might impact Earth's cryosphere, hydrosphere, biosphere, and atmosphere systems. -effects of plate tectonics on climate
Land masses tend to be darker in color, so they absorb much of the sun's rays as heat energy, causing temperatures to rise.
Land masses tend to be lighter in color, so they reflect much of the sun's rays as heat energy, causing temperatures to lower.
Land masses are usually darker in color, so they absorb most of the sun's as shortwave energy, causing temps to go up.
Land masses tend to be lighter in color, so they reflect much of the sun's rays as longwave energy, causing temps to go up.
