Treeline

As you go up the mountain, the temperature drops. Eventually, you go up the mountain so far that the temperature drops low enough and long enough to prevent tress from growing. The treeline will be

slightly higher on south facing slopes than north facing slopes as they have the warmth of the sun to encourage tree growth.

Mountain settlements

The difficulty of building settlements in mountainous areas are well known. The steep slopes make it difficult to use heavy machinery and once built, travelling around the settlement is difficult as wide, fast roads need a lot of flat land, which is often absent in mountainous areas.

Mountain roads

Building houses in mountainous areas is difficult and one of the causes is the difficulty in building access roads. Mountains often prove to be effective barrioers to trade as building efficient, fast, high volume roads through mountain ranges can be prohibitively expensive.

Mountain farming

It is rare to find large open areas of flat land in mountainous areas. When you you do, the colder temperatures at higher altitudes prevent a large number of crops from being planted. The land is often left as meadow for feeding livestock. In Winter, these animals have to be brought in to protect them from the winter weather.

Great on a tablet PC!

We wanted our pupils to use their tablet PCs in our geography lessons but we found there was a shortage of good resources to use with them. So we started making web pages that can be used in lessons that were accessed through the tablet's browser. What do you think? How can we do this better? Drop us an email to let us know.
