  • Q8
    What best describes the influence of latitude on climate?
    The higher you go the thinner the air and the colder it gets due to latitude.
    The sun's radiation is focussed on the equator but as you move north or south the radiation becomes more distributed and has to pass through more atmosphere leading to cooler temperatures.
    Latitude causes warm water to flow from the Gulf of Mexico past the east coast of the UK leading to increased temperature.
    The sun's radiation is more intense around the poles leading to lower temperatures around the equator.
