Temperature--Need to Know

Temperature is:
  • measured by a thermometer
  • affected by the sun and how close it is to the earth

Clouds:


  • reflect the sun's energy
  • keep the temperature cool by preventing the sun's energy to warm up the atmosphere
  • without them, the earth heats up much faster

Land & Water:

  • Land can be heated and cooled faster than water
  • It takes 5 times more energy to heat up water than to heat up soil
