1.Daily mean – adding the max and min daily temps and divide by two Daily range – finding the difference btw the max and min temps for a day Monthly mean – adding daily means for each day of the month and divide by the days in the month Annual mean – averaging the 12 monthly means Annual range – finding the difference btw the highest and lowest monthly means 2.Isotherms are use to show the spread of temperature at the Earth’s surface 3.The depth and shape of Death Valley influence its summer temperatures 4.A)Land is solid and doesn’t heat by convection however water is a liquid and produces convection and heat is distributed over a longer difference between the heating and cooling of land water H) It take less energy to change temperature of land compared to water. Heat is only at the surface of the Earth and evaporation consumes a lot of energy on water C) Atmosphere gets heated by Earth’s surface ; air gets heated from bottom up 5.Annual temperature range is small near the equator and it increases with increasing latitude, so it will be higher at the middle to high latitudes compared to the equator 6.
