Paris in its location on the western side of Europe and in a plain relatively close to the sea as its mentioned on the map, Paris benefits from the balmy influences of the Gulf Stream and has a fairly temperate climate. The weather in Paris can be very changeable, however, especially in winter and spring, when the wind can be sharp and cold.
Most of the city of Paris lies in the "Paris Basin", a low lying continental shelf that has been submerged by ocean waters over geologic time as its shown in Paris on map. This has left marine sedimentary deposits such as limestone. Because of this abundance, many of the Paris buildings are constructed of limestone and the deposits can be observed in the Paris catacombs.
