Insolation is diminished with increasing latitude, since of theangle in ~ which the Sun"s rays fight the surface.

The an altering angle at which the power hits the surface ar meansthat the power is spread over a bigger area through increasinglatitude, phibìc or South.

That"s the main reason the poles are cold and also the equator ishot.

In the hemisphere whereby it"s summer, the effect is not soextreme due to the fact that of the Earth"s axial tilt ("towards" the Sun, inthat hemisphere).

In the winter time in ~ high latitudes the effect is verysignificant due to the fact that the earth is climate "tilted away" indigenous the Sun,in the hemisphere.
