Earth’s climate, responding to the different thermodynamic properties of the land and ocean surfaces, is sensitive to the continental configuration and distribution
of mountain ranges. This is clearly seen in the pattern of mean annual and seasonal range in such climate parameters as temperature and humidity and in the quasistationary patterns of atmospheric circulation, from small-scale sea breezes to planetary waves.
