Earth is made up of both land and water. The interaction of land and
water influences the weather dramatically. The weather is local, and to
understand your weather you have to look at the local conditions to
understand the different weather patterns that occur.
In this exercise you will look at the internet and
compare two regions on the same day. You must choose two areas that are
on the same latitude but one is near the water and the other is on land
with little influence of the water.
Use the worksheet and fill in the appropriate
answers. Then try to determine why the weather is different or the same,
and what influences the weather in both these regions.
