Colder regions generally receive less precipitation than warmer areas Temperature regimes GEOG 1F91 Physical Geography The Global Scope of Climate npilger@brocku.ca Temperature regimes (climographs) : Patterns of mean monthly temperature and precipitation Time Cycles of Climate GEOG 1F91 Physical Geography The Global Scope of Climate npilger@brocku.ca Temperature regimes (climographs) : Annual cycles of precipitation and temperature averaged over many years Climate GEOG 1F91 Physical Geography The Global Scope of Climate npilger@brocku.ca Understanding Climographs GEOG 1F91 Physical Geography The Global Scope of Climate npilger@brocku.ca Time Cycles of Climate Global Precipitation GEOG 1F91 Physical Geography The Global Scope of Climate npilger@brocku.ca Global precipitation patterns largely determined by air masses and their movements Global Precipitation Pattern Produced by...
