Geography and Climate of South Korea

**Country to create blog on South Korea**You will do the following: 1. Create a blog entry on the country assigned to you called “__(your country’s)___Geography and Climate. 2. Follow the directions below for the materials you need to put into the post. You will need access to Excel (or a similar program) for this assignment. For a sample post, see the United States’ post!A top grade for this assignment will be given to posts that completely describe the geography and climate of a country so well that I can imagine how the climate of your country varries spatially and seasonally. Some things that make blog posts different than traditional papers is that they are meant to be interesting to read, they don’t have to be epically long, they can link to sources or further information, and they should make use of images/figures throughout the post. Don’t just put your images in, refer to them in the text! “As you can see in the map above, …” Great blog posts use the images and hyperlinks as tools. The below figures and questions are required, but if at any time you find something interesting to add, please do! Just don’t jump the gun on the future posts where we will be blogging about carbon emissions and whose fault it is that we have climate change, we’ll be talking about the impacts of climate change, then we’ll be blogging about climate change policies and alternative energy, finally we’ll talk about how countries can adapt to the impacts as they are happening. This post is just some background information on your country’s climate.If your name doesn’t appear here, hopefully it’s just because you added the class late. Email me ASAP and I will put you down for one of the extra countries and update the list!GeographyGoogle around for a physical map of your country. It’s really important that you find a physical one so we can see if there are mountains or rivers or lakes in your country. Save the image. I usually do this by right clicking on the image and clicking “save as.” Then I’ll put it somewhere easy to find on my computer, usually my desktop or my pictures folder. Click on the button in your blog that is a little square with a landscape in it (on mine it is third from the left on the bottom row of buttons) . Now, we want to make sure we are citing the person we just stole the map from so we don’t get in trouble! Copy and paste the link of the webpage you found the map on. If you grabbed it from google images, I’d rather you go to the webpage where the picture was actually sitting so you have a shorter link. Under the photo you just entered, say something like, “This map is from:” Then you can highlight the blahblahblah and hit the word “Link” and stick that web address in there to make sure your readers can click on it. (It’s possible that copying and pasting images into your post may work, but if you do this, please test to see that it saves properly.)A great source for information to answer the following questions can be found here: Never plagiarize! Put everything in your own words!Location-Where is the country located in the world with respect to continents, oceans, other countries?Size-How large is the country? (Compare to the US by giving a percent of Continental US area, which is 8,080,464 km2. You can find that out be dividing and moving your decimal place over twice.)Terrain– What types of physical geography make up the country? Are there any noteworthy rivers, lakes, or seas?ClimateCreate a temperature and precipitation graph for Denver and two cities in your country (or nearby). Please use this Excel spreadsheet for your data:climatedata.xlsxIf you are unfamiliar with Excel, use this video to help you make your graphs:This video can also be found here: Types- What climate types exist in your country? (Rainforest? Desert? Semi-arid? Mediterranean climate? There’s a gazillion climate descriptors out there, find some! The CIA World Factbook link above might even have some information for you.) How uniform is the climate across the country? Find a map online to show this and stick it in your post. Maybe the map shows climate types or precipitation, or even agricultural use.Seasonality- What is the annual range of temperature and precipitation for two cities in your country? An annual range is taking the hottest month minus the coldest month. A large range in precipitation probably indicates a monsoonal climate, which is a climate that has a rainy season due to a change in wind directions. How does the annual temperature and precipitation for a city in your country compare to Denver? Do these cities in your country experience large or small seasonality? Seasonality refers to how extreme the seasons are. Denver has more seasonality than Miami where it’s just warm all year.
