A research station is located at the foot of a mountain at 70° latitude in the Northern Hemisphere. The mountain is located between the station and an ocean. Several decades ago, scientists detected a significant drop in the amount of ozone in the stratosphere above the region; in recent years, however, levels of stratospheric ozone have returned to normal. (10 points)

a. Describe the effect of latitude on the amount of sunlight the region receives. Describe how solar intensity will most likely affect the region's average temperature during the summer and winter months. 
b. What kind of convection cell would be found over a region at this latitude? Describe one way in which this cell affects the movement of air through the region in which the station is located, and one way in which this mass movement of air likely affects the region's climate. 
c. Describe two ways in which the region's topography is likely to affect its climate. 
d. Describe two ways that the recent increase in stratospheric ozone decreases risks to people living in the research station.
