Climate – Genesis

Genesis inclines 27° degree toward its ecliptic plane, making its arctic regions larger than Earth’s and its seasonal temperature variations more extreme. Its short day lessens extreme daily temperature variations, however. The planet’s atmospheric pressure at mean sea level gauges just 55 percent of Earth’s, but since the atmosphere contains 31 percent oxygen, Humans can breathe it. The lower atmospheric density reduces the heat transferred from the poles to the equator by atmospheric convection, causing somewhat greater temperature variations with latitude than Earth’s. Lower density also reduces the effective wind pressure, so even though wind velocities average somewhat higher than Earth’s, their destructive and wave-generating forces are lower.
