Which graphic shows climate data for an area?
Climographs show monthly average temperatures and precipitation totals on a single graph. Rather than showing measured data for specific time periods—like the graphs you generated in Part A—climographs show long term averages for all 12 months of the year.
What type of graph is used to show temperature on a climate graph?
Climate graphs are a combination of a bar graph and a line graph. Temperature is shown on a line graph, with the figures being shown on the right side of the graph.
What is climate diagram?
Climate diagrams are brief summaries of average climatic variables and their time course. In bio- and geosciences, they are used as an instrument to show the relationships between soil, vegetation, and climate.
What does the line graph represent?
A line graph is a graphical display of information that changes continuously over time. Within a line graph, there are various data points connected together by a straight line that reveals a continuous change in the values represented by the data points.
What is climate analysis?
The goal of climate analysis is to better understand the Earth’s past and present climate, and to predict future climate response to changes in natural and human-induced factors, such as the Sun, greenhouse gases (e.g., water vapor, carbon dioxide and methane), and aerosols (e.g., from dust storms, pollution, fires.
What does a Climatogram show?
Climatograms are graphs that summarize only two of the factors: monthly measurements of temperature and precipitation. Of course, other factors also affect climate, but a climatogram gives a rough idea of the climate in a particular area.
What are the lines in a graph called?
The line graph comprises of two axes known as ‘x’ axis and ‘y’ axis. The horizontal axis is known as the x-axis. The vertical axis is known as the y-axis.
What do you call a line graph that goes up?
So far, all of the graphs discussed have had a line that either always goes up or always goes down (the technical term for this is monotonic). Other relationships are more complex, with lines than can go up and down (called non-monotonic).
How do you describe a graph?
A line graph plots data in a single line over time. To describe the graph, follow it’s progress along the horizontal access and describe whether it goes down, up, or stays the same.
