The rock cycle and plate tectonics are some of the factors that change the lithoosphere.
The troposphere contains greenhouse gases that regulate the temperature of Earth and is where all weather takes place.
The ozone layer protects the Earth from harmful ultraviolet radiation.
Climate is dictated by a region's average temperature and precipitation, which is influenced by air circulation from convection cells and Earth's tilt, daily rotation around its axis, and annual revolution around the Sun.
There are unique local weather events such as themonsoonslake effectrain shadow effect.
The movement of ocean water around the globe is due to differences in density between layers, prevailing winds, regional air temperatures, and Earth's rotation.
The resulting currents influence weather patterns.
Human water demands are influenced by activities such as:irrigation for domestic agriculture and public uselivestock.
The activities and demands on the water resources will vary by region.
