    Default use of 'as'

    Hi

    In the following sentences are the uses of 'AS' correct?

    "You can feel the change in the temperature as you climb up sharply. The changes in the vegetation are also visible as the altitude increases."

    Thanks for answering

    Yes, "as" is perfectly used in those phrases.

    "As" may mean "because", "while", "like" and/or "although", so try to figure it out first and then we will comment on your choices
