Keeping this in consideration, what are the three different climate zones and where are they located?
Although there is no specific 'type' of climate, there are three general climate zones: arctic, temperate, and tropic. From 66.5N to the North Pole is the Arctic; from 66.5S to the South Pole is the Antarctic.
Also, how are world climates and biomes organized? Biomes. Whereas climates divide the world according to annual temperature and precipitation, biomes divide the world according to prevalent forms of life. More specifically, biomes are typically classified by prevalent vegetation. The driest regions, on the other hand, feature the desert biome.
Similarly, you may ask, what biomes are most similar in climate?
|Savannas and Deciduous Tropical Forest||High||Seasonal Drought|
|Desert||High||Low but a "wet" season|
What are three factors that affect climate?
The climate of any particular place is influenced by a host of interacting factors. These include latitude, elevation, nearby water, ocean currents, topography, vegetation, and prevailing winds. The global climate system and any changes that occur within it also influence local climate.
