Russia the summer is much warmer than in the corresponding latitudes of France, and really hot weather is.
NORTH CAROLINA, a South Atlantic state of the United States of America, situated between latitudes 33° 5 1 ' 37" (the southernmost point of the southern boundary-35° is the northernmost) and about 3 6 ° 34' 2 5.5" N., and between longitudes 75° 27' W.
Latitudes and longitudes, and with their aid it is possible to reconstruct the maps.
Even in lower latitudes (52° to 55° N.) they are ice-bound from the beginning of November to the beginning of May; 1 while in 65° N.
Nevertheless owing to the dryness of the climate, the unclouded sun fully warms the earth during the long summer days in those high latitudes, and gives a short period of warm and even hot weather in the immediate neighbourhood of the pole of cold.
It is generally supposed that man originated in tropical or subtropical latitudes, and spread gradually towards the poles.
The equatorial currents produce conditions differing from those existing at corresponding latitudes on the neighboring continent.
Those which inhabit temperate latitudes hibernate.
For high southern latitudes special value in the American method was useless for this purpose.
Waves and tidal currents produce their full effects in that region, and in high latitudes the effect of transport of materials by ice is very important; while in the warm water of the tropics the reefbuilding animals and plants (corals and calcareous algae) carry on their work most effectively there.
Shore Deposits are the product of the waste of the land arranged and bedded by the action of currents or tidal streams. On the rocky coast of high latitudes blocks of stone detached by frost fall on the beach and becoming embedded in ice during winter are often drifted out to sea and so carry the shore deposits to some distance from the land.
Diatom ooze was recognized by Sir John Murray as the characteristic deposit in high latitudes in the Indian Ocean, and later it was found to be characteristic also of the corresponding parts of the Indian and Pacific covering a total area of about 22,000,000 sq.
Dittmar's analysis of the " Challenger " samples indicated an excess of oxygen in the surface water of high southern latitudes and a deficiency at depths below 50 fathoms.
In 10° N., and in high latitudes it is also small, 5.2° F.
In autumn the enclosed seas of high latitudes frequently present a thermal stratification in which a warm middle layer is sandwiched between a cold upper layer and a cold mass below, the arrangement being termed mesothermic (thaos, middle).
As the Arctic Basin is shut off from the North Atlantic by ridges rising to within 300 fathoms of the surface and from the Pacific by the shallow shelf of the Bering Sea, and as the ice-laden East Greenland and Labrador currents consist of fresh surface water which cannot appreciably influence the underlying mass, the Arctic region has no practical effect upon the bottom temperature of the three great oceans, which is entirely dominated by the influence of the Antarctic. The existence of deep-lying and extensive rises or ridges in high southern latitudes has been indicated by the deep-sea temperature observations of Antarctic expeditions.
IOWA, a north central state of the United States, situated between latitudes 40° 36' and 43° 30' N.
It is allied to the European species of shad and pilchard, and, like the latter, approaches the coast in immense shoals, which are found throughout the year in some part of the littoral waters between Maine and Florida, the northern shoals retiring into deeper water or to more southern latitudes with the approach of cold weather.
As a result there is a remarkable community of resemblance of plant and animal life in the high northern latitudes of North America and Eurasia.
That part of America between New France and Virginia, or between latitudes 40° and 45° N.
It lies between latitudes 45° 32' and 49° N.
MONTANA, a north-western state of the United States, situated between latitudes 44 0 26' and 49° N., and between longitudes 27° and 39° W.
The herring inhabiting the corresponding latitudes of the North Pacific is another species, but most closely allied to that of the eastern hemisphere.
Quantities can be learned from experience, and from watching individual cases; frequency varies within very wide limits, from reptiles which at most may feed once a week and fast for long periods, to the smaller insectivorous birds which require to be fed every two or three hours, and which in the winter dark of northern latitudes must be lighted up once or twice in the night to have the opportunity of feeding.
MARYLAND, a South Atlantic state of the United States, and one of the original thirteen, situated between latitudes 37° 53' and 39° 44' N.
I took particular pleasure in this breaking of ground, for in almost all latitudes men dig into the earth for an equable temperature.
Under what latitudes reside the heathen to whom we would send light?
Be rather the Mungo Park, the Lewis and Clark and Frobisher, of your own streams and oceans; explore your own higher latitudes--with shiploads of preserved meats to support you, if they be necessary; and pile the empty cans sky-high for a sign.
