When air in one region is warmer than the surrounding air, it becomes less dense and begins to rise, drawing more air in underneath. This produces a wet climate on the upwind side of the mountains and an arid rain shadow on the downside. Science has also developed extreme insulating materials too that help protect people from extreme cold as well. The FREE worksheet on Dry Climates includes a fun hidden . Young researchers are particularly encouraged to participate and present their results.
