The correct answers are:
1. c. a distinctive combination of plants and animals that covers a significant portion of Earth's surface;
The biome is defined by the flora and fauna that are living at a particular place and are creating a specific, unique ecosystem that has a clearly defined natural borders with the other biomes.
2. a. the average yearly weather patterns in a given area;
Because the climate is taken as whole for a prolonged period of time and observation at a certain place, the yearly averages of multiple years, or decades, are taken in consideration so that it can be more precisely defined.
3. b. the specific condition of the atmosphere at a given palace and time;
The weather is a variable that changes constantly, so it can simply be seen as a specific condition of the atmosphere over a certain place at the moment of observation.
4. e. all of the above;
There's multiple factors that define the climate, and it represents a mixture of them all. The topography, elevation, latitude, and proximity to oceans and mountains, are all factors that influence it, and their combinations and influences are creating various climates across the world.

The atmosphere formed before the oceans.
According to estimates, the emergence of the atmosphere occurred approximately 4 billion years ago. Its formation happened when the planet Earth, after having suffered a huge warming, began to cool, then from its interior was being expelled water vapor, and a considerable amount of gases, among other elements. They headed toward outer space, but a portion settled around the planet, an event provided by gravitational force.
The origin of the oceans is closely linked to the formation of the atmosphere and the cooling of the planet and the formation of the lithosphere. It is from the atmosphere that at least 50% of the water that fills the ocean basins came from (another 50% is believed to be from meteorites). And it is from the weathering of the rocks that form the lithosphere that most of the ions that form the salts of the seawater came.
The first ocean basins date from the Archean, between 3.6 and 3.9 billion years, or about 1 billion years after the formation of the planet. It is important to note that the early oceans should have quite different composition from the present one, in that they partially reflected the composition of the atmosphere. The increase in the amount of oxygen on the planet would only have occurred about 2.2 billion years ago.

QUESTION POSTED AT 16/02/2020 - 12:10 AM
Unsurprisingly among scientists, continents and ocean floors are in continuous motion. This movement occurs through magmatic currents in the innermost layers of the Earth (convection currents), which eventually alter the position of the immense blocks of rock floating above the magma, called tectonic plates.
Thus, this movement of the plates eventually leads to constant shocks in their meeting regions, which causes seismic and volcanic activities around the globe. The boundaries between such tectonic plates, however, may follow different orientations, thus determining the classification that will be exposed below.
In this type of limit, there is the separation between plates. In the space created between the two large blocks, the formation of a new crust occurs through the solidification of the magma. It can occur on continents or oceans.

QUESTION POSTED AT 15/02/2020 - 11:37 PM
On the Earth today there is a strong diversity gradient from pole to equator among communities of organisms living in the shallow seas and on land. Many more species live in tropical communities than in high-latitude communities, and the average number of species in any community falls off toward the poles even over a few degrees of latitude. This trend has been documented for many groups of organisms, from birds to bivalves and from foraminiferans to orchids.
Many explanations have been suggested for the diversity gradient, but generally they relate to the fact that the environment is much more seasonal toward the poles. At the equator, the day length never changes much from a twelve-hour day-night cycle; at each pole there is for practical purposes only one day and one night per year, with three months of full daylight, three months of complete darkness, and two three-month periods of twilight in between. Environmental conditions fluctuate greatly in polar regions, especially the supply of food that comes directly from photosynthetic plant production on land and in the sea. Only relatively few organisms have adapted to live successfully in such an extreme set of conditions. What is the connection between seasonal light intensity and low diversity?
