Pacific Maritimes Characteristics
  • A high increase in elevation from the ocean to
    the mountains that boarder the coast.
  • There are mild winters (3 C) cool summers (15
    C), precipitation is 600 - 2000 mm
  • A wide variety of naturel vegetation
  • The soils vary in depth and structure

Victorias Climate Graph
  • This region has a lot of precipitation because it
    is a coastal region and it has a high elevation
    in comparison to the ocean
  • In the summer there not as much precipitation
    because the Warm Japanese and Cold Alaskan
    current to not meet as much as they do in the
  • There are no extream temperatures because the
    ocean moderates the land temperature
  • Ocean Currents, like the Warm Japanese Current
    can affect the temperature by bringing warm water
    from asia near to this region

Vancouvers Climagraph
Pacific Cordilleran Characteristics
  • There are many mountains and plateaus
  • moderated winters (-12 C)
  • moderated summers (15 C),
  • The vegetation varies depending on elevation,
    many coniferous trees

Mountains Affecting Climate
  • The Rocky Mountains affect two regions in British
  • The Rocky Mountains affect these regions because
    the warm, moist air from the Pacific ocean rises
    over the mountain range, cools and condenses.

Nearness To Water Affecting Climate
  • The Pacific Ocean moderates the temperature.
  • In the summer the cool winds from the water cool
    the land and in winter the warm winds from the
    water warm the land.
  • Therefore they have a more mild climate than if
    British Columbia was an inland region.

Ocean Currents Affecting Climate
  • The Warm Japanese Current affect this climate
    regions because it helps to warm up the land.
  • Therefore, if the water was always warm around
    British Columbia it would be warmer in British
    Columbia that it is now. If the water was always
    very cold than it would be much colder in British
    Columbia than it is now.
