The general or average weather conditions of a certain region, including temperature, rainfall, and wind. On earth, climate is most affected by latitude, the tilt of the earth’s axis, the movements of the earth’s wind belts, the difference in temperatures of land and sea, and topography. Human activity, especially relating to actions relating to the depletion of the ozone layer, is also an important factor. | Source: Earthlabs
