Key to exercises 1-2 in the exam

The result you should have obtained from the climate graph data is this:

Look at the values on the axes, rainfall is always double than temperatures... if not, it is wrong.

























And exercise 2 was the climate graph from Aberdeen... already done in class:

I am going to analyze the climate graph of Aberdeen, in Scotland (UK).
Temperature is not the same all year round. It seems to have at least two different seasons: summer and winter. In the summer months, there are higher temperatures, with a maximum of around 15ºC, so it has warm summers. Winter months have colder temperatures, with a minimum of near 0ºC, so it is mild. I can say that the range of temperature is of about 15ºC, so I think this city is near the sea, because there is no much difference between the range of temperatures.
Rainfall is regular, it is continuous all year round, and it is abundant. All seasons are wet, being the wetter  autumn, and the drier spring. The total annual rainfall is 840 mm approximately.

The climate graph gives us the oceanic climate, typical of an Atlantic coastal city, because it rains a lot, regularly, and temperatures are mild all year round. It is in the northern hemisphere because of… blablabla
