Climate Graphs

As we know, the Antarctic is colder than the Arctic. Now, let's look in detail at some data and compare the climate of these two regions at opposite ends of the earth. Watch the following video to learn how to create a climate graph. We want to compare both the average temperature and the average precipitation (rainfall). Create two graphs for this purpose. Remember temperature should be in Celsius and rainfall in mm. Don't forget you'll be dealing with negative numbers! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wv6yHl0LpgM https://www.researchgate.net/figure/b-General-Climate-Graph-for-Central-Macrozone-using-example-of-Paredones-Warm_fig3_273121277 This is the climate data for Longyearbyen in the Arctic: https://en.climate-data.org/europe/norway/svalbard/longyearbyen-27870/ This is is the climate data for McMurdo in Antarctica: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/McMurdo_Station Locate both places on Google Earth Once you've drawn your graphs, write at least five questions about the data.
