GEOG 1112 Possible FINAL EXAM Questions ( italics = maps, * = math, ** = visual) SINCE TEST #4 (mostly): 1. What is a difference between weather and climate? Which one is concerned with all the spheres, not just the atmosphere? Which one is most clearly governed by a set of known physics laws? Which one is more concerned with long time scales and global space scales? Which one is the focus of more research these days? 2. What’s wrong with the following arguments: “The global climate is warming because today is hot here in Athens.” “Global warming can’t be happening because the temperature hasn’t risen in every location on Earth.” 3. The Köppen system does what? It’s based on what two fundamental climate variables? (Note that the book needs some fixing here: the parameters are CLIMATE variables, i.e. not vegetation.) 4. What is Type B in the Köppen system, and where is it found? What large-scale cell determines its location? 5. Köppen Krush: What is the specific three-letter Köppen type for Athens and what does it mean? If your climate has a Type Am personality, approximately where do you live and do you need an umbrella? Where is a Cs climate found (outside of the U.S.)? The boreal forest or “taiga” is associated with which capital letter? If your climate type is ET, where are you phoning home from? Is “Cpa” a climate type? Is “BS” a climate type? Is “ENFJ” a climate type?
