This unit on Climate can stand alone. It can also be linked with other units in the Arnhem Land series. It has focus on the monsoon mechanism and the explanation of wet and dry seasons. It also includes the circular graph of the Yolngu Aboriginal people which provides broader details in its 7 seasons' approach. The included black and white attachments are designed to prompt responses from students about the consequences of the seasonal variations. These pages are also included in colour so that they can be displayed and discussed in the classroom. Potential engineers may tune in to the design and function of the bridge over the Goyder River which is in response to the rising water levels of the wet season which before the construction of the bridge made that crossing impossible.
