Turkey

For

Turkey should be in the EU as it needs help with the Kurds and Armenaians as they are fighting. Also it still has the death penalty which if they joined the EU would be gotten rid of immideatley. Also the situation between turkey and cyprus would be sorted out straight away.

Against

Turkey shouldnt join the EU as its human rights are awful and they are at war which means it would need serious sorting out. So I think that they should have to prove that they can get rid of there death penalty and stop the war between them and cyprus.

Weather and Climate

Weather=the day to day change in temperature,win,rain and sushine.

Climate=the long term average of the weather normally over 30 years

Water cycle

  • Evaporation=the water turns to water vapour
  • Condensation=the water vapour turns into the clouds and freezes and turns back to water
  • Precipitaion=where the clouds cant hold that amount of water any more and it starts to rain
  • run off=if the rain lands on a mountain the route it takes back to the lake,sea, river

Rain

  • Relief=Wind picks up moisture and once the moisture reaches high land it has cool and condense and eventually it rains
  • Convectional=The sun heats the ground and the moisture goes above the ground as a convectional curret which once it reaches the clouds condenses and rains
  • Frontal=A warm front and a cold front meet and in the middle the lighter warm air gos above the heavier cold air and condenses and rains.

Clouds

  • Cirrus=Thin and very high in the sky, clouds made of ice crystals as so high
  • Cumulus=Fluffy,high in the sky,bring showers,can turn into big heavy clouds which bring thunderstorms.
  • Stratus=Huge blankets of grey…
