Why are areas of the world so different from one another?


Question asked by: knowitall

Interesting question. This is due to the fact that they are in different geographic locations, and each area has different properties endowed on it through its location.

For instance, the extremities of the earth are colder as they get less sunlight, these are the poles, and are cold.

As you get closer to the equator then things warm up more.

The angle of the earth and position you are at relative to the sun and the angle at which the rays hit the earth causes some places to be warmer than others.

So it is location on the earth itself and conditions on earth coupled with space and the sun that make different places so different.

On earth itself being around a plate boundary can lead to mountainous areas and give range to volcanoes, depressions give water filled rivers and so on.
