Climatology and Climate Changes

Parent Category: Atmospheric Sciences
Climatology is the meteorological study of the climates of the earth, their origin, and their role as elements of the natural environment. Climate is the expected mean and variability of the weather conditions for a particular location, season, and time of day. Climate change involves statistical changes in the distribution of weather over periods of time, which could be decades or millions of years.
Countries that lie near the equator, the imaginary line dividing the northern and southern hemisphere of the globe. For example, Southeast Asian countries such as Singapore, Malaysia etc. People in these countries do not experience the four seasons as compared to residents in temperate regions.
weather . The state of the atmosphere at a given time and place,with respect to variables such as temperature, moisture, windvelocity, and barometric pressure. a. Adverse or destructiveatmospheric conditions, such as high winds or heavy rain:encountered weather five miles out to sea.
There is technically not a 'Rainy Season' for Alaska, as Alaska'sSummer's are only slightly rainier than the rest of the US. May isrelatively dry, with only a 25% chance of rain, but as the Summerprogresses, the likelihood of rain increases, as in Autumn, theaverage chance of rain on any given day...
The rotation causes the days, 24 hour periodsof light and dark based on your location on the Earth. The rotationis important because without rotation of the earth, we would not aseasily be able to tell, or keep track of time. What we consider tobe the passage of time- 1 minute, 1 hour, 1 day, is all...
California,Australia,Asia,Latin America and north america
In the outback, because it's desert, but it's pretty cold at night.Not all parts are 'hot'. Answer Actually, deserts aren't cold at night in summer (and in winterthey can be quite cool in daytime). Australia is generally hot incomparison to other countries because of the huge landmass,...
Humans burning fossil fuels (coal, oil and natural gas) release carbon dioxide, a powerful greenhouse gas. This is causing global warming. Any warming of the earth will lead to changes in climate. Scientists predict this will mean that storms, floods, droughts and other weather events will happen...
more likely during the spring or summer
The pasque flower blooms in the spring and the summer.
The distance between Houston, Texas, Usa and Tampa, Florida, Usa isapproximately 1,266 km or 787 mi. To reach Houston, Texas in this distance one would set out fromTampa, Florida bearing 283.2° or WNW and follow the great circlesarc to approach Houston, Texas bearing 277° or W . Both have a...
Its caused by the inclination of the Earth's axis of rotation tothe plane of its orbit round the sun. Thus the longest daylighttime is on the 21 of June and it slowly decreases until it is theshortest on the 21st of Decemberr and then it starts to increaseagain.
Seasons effect different things, such as Spring is when flowers blossum from sunshine; winter is a cold season, summer is a hot season and Autumn is when the trees dispose of their leaves.
The laws of thermodynamics tell us to expect observable changeswhen we perturb (change) the inputs or conditions of theenvironment in this case, the earth. What we put into the air, howwe change the surface through logging and agriculture, and what wedump into the ocean can all wind up altering the...
Nope, the other way around. More tea, Jeffery ol' bean?
It depends on the context. . For pneumatic systems, Pounds per square in (PSI) or Bars (orofficially, MegaPascals, MPa), where 1 Bar is "Standard"atmospheric pressure at mean sea-level at 20ºC. . For weather, milliBars (mBar), because weather systems arevariations of no more than a few tens of...

Maize is normally a kharif crop, planted for an autumn harvest. In the US, it's called "corn", and is usually planted in mid-spring for an autumn harvest.
In the industrial revoloution in the late 1800s.
325 degrees Fahrenheit equates to 162.8 degrees Celsius.
No, currently there is not a second season of nana.
Yes its called Equinox. An equinox occurs twice a year, when the tilt of the Earth's axis is inclined neither away from nor towards the sun , the Sun being vertically above a point on the Equator.
There are 267 days until August.
The ancient Egyptians' belief system is generally studied by their interpretation of three concepts of thinking mythology, religion, and philosophy. Their society centered around their attempt to explain such nonempirical questions such as; 'Is there life after death?' 'How did the universe began'?...
Alaska is very very cold.Colder than our winter down here inIndiana.
The first day of winter in the Southern Hemisphere -- where you'll find the Antarctic continent -- is June 21.
Climate may influence the type of farming, as some crops require dry or wet weather to grow.
In the summer the day gets longer as you go further north. At lastthere comes a point where the Sun never sets. On June 21 at theArctic Circle and beyond, the Sun shines 24 hours each day.
It has to do with reflection and how glass magnifies heat. When the sun streams toward the window, the room or person near the window gets hot. Yet, if you touch the glass, the glass itself may feel cool or cold because the colder outside temperature affects the surface of the glass. Next answer:...

Clouds are one of the big unknowns about global warming as they can have a range of effects, warmer temperatures caused by global warming will result in higher rates of evaporation and therefore will result in higher cloud cover. in turn higher cloud cover can increase night time temperatures...
Christmas. Cold, and if you are near a fire cozy.
No. The tides are a result of the gravitational pull of the moon as it rotates around the Earth. This rotation takes place over a period of 24 hours and 50 minutes. The Earth's rotation takes 24 hours and 0 minutes. Therefore, the two are not synchronized and the tide change will be different each...

Because the shapes of bays, inlets, and the ocean floor can affect the flow of water.
The temperate zone receives more direct sunlight as it is closer tothe equator than the polar zone.
Atmospheric pauses are the dynamic boundaries between each of the earths atmospheric layers. Each pause contains characteristics of both layers in varying concentrations.
12. The equator gets 12 hours of daylight every day of the year.
Water has higher specific heat capacity compared to the materials present in the earth. So with less amount of heat earth's temperature rises up easily but temperature of water has not that much rise. So we feel that earth gets heated faster than water.
When one hemisphere of the Earth (northern, southern) is tilted toward the Sun, the opposite hemisphere is tilted away from the Sun. The tilt of the Earth with respect to its orbital plane is what causes seasons to occur throughout the year. (see related question)
The Philippines only has 2 seasons: Dry and Rainy . Because it has a tropical climate, the weather patterns and prevailing temperatures usually do not go below 65º F. The transition from dry to rainy is marked by hot, humid months of March, April, and May. the transition from rainy to dry is...
Traditionally in Ireland it is regarded as the 1st of February. For meteorologists, they would say the 21st of March.
Humid plains. it goes up to 59F degress and it can go low as -9
Man has been cutting down forests and burning fossil fuels since 1750, the beginning of the Industrial Age. Combustion of fossil fuels releases long-held carbon dioxide (CO2) which adds to the greenhouse gases . Reduction of forests means that more CO2 remains in the atmosphere. The extra CO2 is...
Global warming is partly a natural phenomenon. In fact without this, the world would be some thirty degrees Celsius colder than it is today. Carbon dioxide is a naturally occurring greenhouse gas. At normal concentrations, it, along with other greenhouse gases, helps maintain global temperatures at...
Exactly 50% of the moon is illuminated by the sun at every instant of time (except during a lunar eclipse). From our vantage point on earth, the amount of the illuminated half that we can see at any time changes during the month. "First Quarter" means the first quarter of the moon's entire...
Rotation. It takes 24 hours to rotate fully one time. The side facing the sun is in daylight, the side facing away is in night. An interesting fact is that in order for us to experience 365 days in a year, the Earth has to rotate 366 times as it revolves around the sun in that year.
The climate for Cheyenne, Wyoming is semi-arid, meaning that itreceives low precipitation, but not low enough to be considered adesert climate.
Not much of an answer, but Its something to do with the moon and gravity. Hope that helps
Because mountains are a barrier for moving air. They block the wind. . No: The mountains make air rise, cooling it and making precipitation (Rain & snow) more likely. Air currents are disrupted causing local variation in air pressure which also has an effect on the liklihood of more rain, or if the...
March 20th is when the Vernal Equinox will occur.
Tour around nearby cities, check out the historical sites, hike aview hills and be able to see some amazing views. Hope that helpedyou can also look at I think
The Earth's axis is not a physical thing. Any body that is rotating has an axis of rotation.
The Northern and Western Hemispheres.
the northen hemisphere doestnt have a sun so it isn't a planet and what is the northen hemisphere coz i am confused
The autumnal equinox would be the opposite.
well, the earth is always tilted north. so there is no saying where it is tilted during any season. its always tilted the same direction. B: By rk13 Well Earth also take some tilts due to the changes in the position towards the sun during the revolution.
They _DO_ change. We just don't live long enough to notice. Every star has its own "proper motion", in all different directions. The stars all orbit the center of the Milky Way galaxy, for example; for the Earth, this takes about 220 million years. But they are all so far away that we don't notice...
If the earth continues to warm, then most regions will becomewarmer and drier. Some lands that are suitable for animals andcrops will become deserts. Animals that cannot find their normal food will die. If the animal's habitat is destroyed then the animal has to move,adapt or die. A: Global...
The point in the sky where the sun crosses the celestial equator on its way north is the point called the "Vernal Equinox". The sun reaches that point and passes it on March 21 every year.
Current theory is that Earth is tilted vs the vertical due to impact(s) during its formation. This tilt is pretty much in lockstep with its translation movement around the sun, so the tilt, which causes the seasons to occur, repeats the position of earth every 12 months.
Sunday. You can find a day of week calculator at this site. Just enter in the date and it will calculate it for you:
Humid days feel hotter because the air temperature is high, the relative humidity is high, and the air is saturated with water vapor making body moisture unable to evaporate but instead collect on our skin. Hot and dry days have a separation between the temperature of the air and dew point with a...
no because all of the seasons have the same length......i think
The average temperature of the US will range from a high of 70.7degrees Fahrenheit to a low of 26.6 °F (-3.0 °C). All together,this averages out to be about 52.7 °F (11.5 °C).
For an observer at latitude 35 degrees, the highest the sun can ever be in his sky is roughly 31.5 degrees above the horizon.
The tilt of Earth's axis causes the seasons, no matter what zone you refer to.
You can find Semi-arid climates in Southwestern Russia and Central Asia
It all depends on how long it would take for the weather to change from the temperate climate we have now to conditions conducive to establishing an ice age. Humans are very resilient. If we are given enough time to prepare, then we should have no real problems dealing with the weather and all that...
There are two major motions affecting the Earth: its rotation around its axis, and its rotation around the Sun (which we call 'revolution'). While the rotation of the Earth on its axis causes the nightly movement of the stars across the sky, the revolution is responsible for the fact that we can see...
