Genetic and Empirical Approaches to Classifying Climates
Charles Dodd, Shoreline Community College
Students (in groups of 3-4) are given a hypothetical planet and create a genetically based climate regionalization. Students then interpret empirical data of various climate phenomena (precipitation, temperature, evapo-transpiration) from different locations on the planet, and apply these to the Koppen system of climate classification.
