Climate. Climate does not depend entirely upon latitude, though the poles are the coldest, the tropics the hottest, and the intermediate latitudes may be said generally to be colder or hotter as they are near or distant from the ecliptic, or the equator. But the climate depends somewhat upon the difference of the Internal beat of the earth ; and England in a warmer climate than the sun-rays of its latitude could confer upon it. These differences of temperature have been mapped out, and are found to indicate curious but somewhat irregular t heat, named "thermal lines." The.
moisture and state of cultivation of a country will, of course, affect the climate; logical peculiarities, and the of its surface, will give a
Character to it.
