# Predict the Graph

For each of the situations below, can you predict what the microclimate might look like by sketching a line or curve on each of the graphs? Each graph shows one measurement, marked with a red dot.

• It is a sunny, calm day in the middle of summer. You are making measurements of the air temperature, 1m above the ground, near a large, deep pond, in the afternoon.

Justify the shape of your sketched line: ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

• It is a clear, cold, calm day in early winter. You are making measurements of the air temperature, 1m above the ground, near a large, deep pond.

Justify the shape of your sketched line: ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

• You are making measurements of the humidity of the air, near a large, deep pond on a calm clear day.

• You are making measurements of the air temperature, 1m above the ground, near a large, tarmacked car park on a sunny, calm summer’s day.

Justify the shape of your sketched line: ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

• It is a clear, cold day in late winter. You are making measurements of the air temperature, 1m above the ground, near a large, heated building. Add an appropriate x axis as well as a temperature line or curve to this graph:
