polar zone: cold climates at the North and South poles that get only indirect sunlight
marine climate: affected by the ocean, this climate has mild winters and cool summers
continental climate: surrounded by land, this climate has cold winters and hot summers
temperature factors: latitude, altitude, distance from large bodies of water and ocean currents
precipitation factors: prevailing winds, seasonal winds, and mountains (shadow effect)
monsoons: winds that change direction with the seasons
rain shadow effect: windward side of the mountain is wetter than the leeward side
altitude: how high the land is, mountain tops are colder than the base
ocean currents: carry warm water from the equator to colder areas and cold water from the poles to warmer areas
prevailing winds: winds that blow in one direction
latitude: distance from the equators.
