How Does Elevation Affect Climate?

Elevation affects the climate by having less air available at higher attitudes. With less air it will be cooler in temperatures where there is more air available.

Elevation is how high above sea level that you are, and the higher you are, the less density the air has. Air that is less dense, will not hold heat very well, so at higher elevations, you will have colder temps.
