HideShow resource information
Name three things to do with latitude that affect glaciated landscapes
- Sun has to heat up larger surface area - Greater thickness of atmosphere - Solar anticylclones
1 of 5
How is solar heat lost?
absorption by gas, scaterring of particles, reflected by clouds
2 of 5
How does altitude affect glaciated landscapes?
The air is thinner the higher the altitude so it can't absorb as much heat
3 of 5
What is the environmental lapse rate?
0.6degrees celcius per 100m
4 of 5
