Based on what you have learned regarding the effects of ocean temperatures on different climates on Earth, describe the climate you would expect to find in the region around the bay that Caspar, Lina, and Maddy traveled to. Classify the type of airmass and explain why you believe this is appropriate to the area based on the book description.
 
 
There are several descriptions of both geography and weather conditions throughout the "People of Sparks".  Using descriptive passages from the book, infer where you think Sparks is located and "the city" Caspar, Lina, and Maddy travelled to for rare and much needed items.  (Keep in mind the relationship between time and distance.)   Please use an atlas or other sources to cite specific geographical locations.  You must include climate information for the locations you identify as the locations described in the book.
 
 
Describe the role of solar energy (both direct and indirect) to the people of Sparks.  How do the Emberites respond to the presence of the sun?  You must include at least two quotes or passages from the assigned reading.
