    Albedo is the energy lost through reflection of the atmopshere- high albedo in the north pole due to ice caps, snow etc being very reflective
    low albedo at the equator due to vegetation absorbing heat
    el nino is a name given to a climate pattern that causes the warming of the pacific ocean- la nina is associated with the opposite, cooling of the tropical pacific waters. el nino reverses the normal direction of atmospheric pressure that develops over Tahiti - this causes the trade winds to weaken and in turn causes heavy rain over australia & deciminating the fishing stops off the coast of peru.

    does anyone know what the 6 factors for why industry would locate somewhere are?
    space to upscale/built carparks
    near an available workforce (example-cambridge science park)
    close to motorway intersections/ports/airports
    where there is government subsidies available (example-welsh development agency got LG electronics to move there for subsidies)
    near target market (on the edge of a city)
