An area far inland gets less oceanic in¯uence and is more at the mercy of the amount of heat received from the di€ering sun angle and day length at di€erent times of year. 12b). The coldest winters on earth outside Antarctica occur not at the North Pole but in the interior of northeastern Siberia, because of its isolation from the oceans. This is known as a ``continental'' climate, receiving little heat from the distant oceans, and not much warming water vapor in the atmosphere to release heat.

Here there is no reason to drop leaves at any particular time of year. There is enough moisture year round, and the winters are mild, so photosynthesis is possible at any time of year. Through most of the mid-latitudes, colder winters mean that there would be a disadvantage in holding on to leaves all through the year. It would be too cold during winter for them to work e€ectively, and they would just lose water, get tattered and torn, their cells damaged by frost, and chewed by herbivores. With all these damaging in¯uences, they would be thoroughly ine€ective by the end of the winter season.

So it is a rather complex circular chicken-and-egg situation. Actually, there is something peculiar about the North Atlantic circulation, beyond just the push of equatorial trade winds, which partly explains why it is strong enough to produce the Furious Fifties. As well as being pushed, it is also pulled along by another mechanism, the thermohaline circulation. 4 THE THERMOHALINE CIRCULATION Ocean currents do not just move around on the surface. In some places, the upper ocean waters sink down into the deep ocean.
