Daily temperature range From the maximum and minimum it is computed by finding the difference between these figures. Monthly mean temperature Is calculated by adding together the daily means for each day of the month and dividing by the number of days in the month. The annual mean temperature Is an average of the 12 monthly means. The annual temperature range Is computed by finding the difference between the warmest and coldest monthly mean temperatures. Isotherm Is a line that connects points on a map that have the same temperature. Temperature Gradient The amount of temperature change per unit of distance Temperature Control Is any factor that causes temperatures to vary from place to place and from time to time. Specific Heat The amount of heat needed to raise the temperature of 1 gram of a substance by 1 degree Celsius Windward Coast Winds blow from the ocean onto the shore Leeward Coast Prevailing winds blow from the land toward the ocean. .remove_background_ad { border: 1px solid #555555; padding: .75em; margin: .75em; background-color: #e7e7e7; } .rmbg_image { max-height: 80px; } Authordavecowman ID350794 Card SetIntroduction to Meteorology Chapter 3 Temperature DescriptionTemperature Updated2020-02-05T14:45:46Z Show Answers
