Gerome the Gnome on the Roam to Celebrate Earth Day

Gerome travels to the Map Collection room to take a look at the climate globe of Earth.

The globe, Klima-Globus by von Georg Jench in 1970 (Shields Library, Map Collection, Call Number: MAP G3171.C81 1970 .J4), has an accompanying booklet to explain the symbols and markings.  English translation included. The globe shows different climate zones of the world and the intertropical convergence (ITC) lines which circle the globe.  It also includes low-pressure areas, high-pressure areas, and winds for January and July.
