Textbook Problem

Identify and compare the climate factors that strongly influence the tundra and ice-sheet regions. How do these controlling factors affect the distribution of these climates?

To determine

The comparison between climate factors that strongly influence the tundra and ice-sheet regions. Also describe the way in which these controlling factors affects the distribution of these climates.

Explanation

Even though the tundra climate is situated closer to the poles, it is also along the periphery of landmasses. Due to the maritime influence, the temperature range in the tundra are not as larger as in the subarctic and the winter temperatures in the polar regions are not severe as in the tundra since they are farther inland. The uniformly high insolation during the long winter nights results in a small range of diurnal temperature and also due to exceedingly low absolute humidity and the influence of the polar anticyclone, the precipitation will be generally low...
