      Northern Europe is the geographical region in Europe roughly north of the southern coast of the Baltic Sea, which is about 54°er definitions may be based on other geographical factors such as climate and ecology.A broader definition would include the area north of the ies which are central-western (such as Belgium and Switzerland), central (such as Austria) or central.   Likewise, I could think of nowhere in Europe that has the dry continental climate of Denver, or warm humid subtropical climate of somewhere like Atlanta, GA or New Orleans. And there definitely is no equivalent of the tropical climates of Miami!

      The Arctic coastal regions of northern Europe and the upper slopes of its highest mountains are characterized by tundra vegetation, which consists mostly of lichens, mosses, shrubs, and wild flowers. The milder, but nevertheless cool temperatures of inland northern Europe create an environment favorable to a continuous cover of coniferous trees. The Gulf Stream is perhaps the most important current for Western Europe’s climate and is responsible for producing a temperate climate for a northern latitude location. Most of Western Europe has a moderate type C climate. The Gulf Stream originates in the Gulf of Mexico, where the waters are warmed. This powerful current follows the Eastern Seaboard of the United States before crossing the.

      Urban Climates is the first full synthesis of modern scientific and applied research on urban climates. The book begins with an outline of what constitutes an urban ecosystem. It develops a comprehensive terminology for the subject using scale and surface classification as key by: A huge part of Europe, encompassing northern Ukraine, eastern Belarus, Russia, most of Finland and northern Sweden, has a continental climate. These places experience much colder and longer winters than Western Europe, while having less rain. Areas near the coast of southern Europe are part of the Mediterranean climate zone.

EUROPEAN CLIMATES AND VEGETATION The Earth has different climate zones. Europe is located in the Northern hemisphere. Europe spans two of the Earth climate zones. It has a temperate climate and a cold climate. 3 Teacher Delia Carmen Dumitru Sopirla 4.

These climates include semiarid, Mediterranean, humid subtropical, marine, humid continental, subarctic, tundra and highland climates.

Let’s talk about where these climates can be found. Western Europe. When most people in other parts of the world think of Europe, they imagine Western Europe: maybe a cafe in Paris, taking a bite of a. In northern Europe summers are cooler and winters are longer and colder, with heavy snowfall.

Eastern Europe is also cold in winter, but summers are frequently hotter than in the west. Across central Europe summers are certainly warm and often hot, while winters, although milder than the north, can be quite cold with significant : John Moen.

Northern Europe typically refers to the seven countries in the northern part of the European subcontinent which includes Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, and Sweden.

However, the United Nations report published in defines Northern Europe as including the following 10 countries and dependent regions.

Northwestern Europe, or Northwest Europe, is a loosely defined region of Europe, overlapping northern and western Europe. The region can be defined both geographically and ethnographically. 1 Geographic definitions. 2 Ethnographic definitions. 3 World War II Theatre.

Geographic definitions. Geographically, Northwestern Europe usually consists. Eastern Europe, including Scandinavia, has a climate differing from that of Western Europe by being cool-summer humid continental.

This means that while summers are mild, winters are much colder and snowier. The Northern Europe region that includes Finland, Norway and Sweden has a subarctic climate. The Western Uplands, also known as the Northern Highlands, curve up the western edge of Europe and define the physical landscape of Scandinavia (Norway, Sweden, and Denmark), Finland, Iceland, Scotland, Ireland, the Brittany region of France, Spain, and Portugal.

The Western Uplands is defined by hard, ancient rock that was shaped by glaciation. Although Western Europe is very industrially developed, agriculture is the main form of land use. Throughout Western Europe the lands are used for many different types of agriculture, which is caused by the differences in climates and the different terrain that can be found in each region.

Overall, much of Europe enjoys a relatively mild climate, at least when compared with other locations throughout the world lying at the same latitude. This is primarily due to the Atlantic Ocean's warm Gulf Stream current, which exerts a moderating effect on a significant portion of the continent, particularly its westernmost half.

Temperate climates are characterized by four distinct seasons, without very much extreme weather. The Gulf Stream brings warm and humid air to the countries of much of Northern Europe. By doing so, it allows those countries to have milder climates than those of countries at similar latitudes.

Continental climates are not found in the Southern Hemisphere because of the absence of a continent large enough to generate this effect. Humid Continental (Dfa, Dfb) The humid continental climates are found around the polar front in North America and Europe (Figure below).

In the winter, middle-latitude cyclones bring chilly temperatures and snow. The Gulf Stream Ocean current that carries warmer water from the South Atlantic to the North Atlantic and moderates the temperature of Western Europe.

is perhaps the most important current for Western Europe’s climate and is responsible for producing a temperate climate for a northern latitude location. Most of Western Europe has a moderate type C climate.
