The Effect of Land Masses on Climate

This video produced by ThinkTV describes the complex connections between land (the lithosphere) and other parts of Earth’s climate system. Animations from NOAA show how distance from the equator affects average temperature in the Northern and Southern Hemispheres. The video emphasizes five land factors that influence climate: latitude, elevation, topography, surface reflectivity, and land use. Land masses are one part of the Earth system that affects climate.
