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.
There is technically not a 'Rainy Season' for Alaska, as Alaska's  Summer's are only slightly rainier than the rest of the US. May is  relatively dry, with only a 25% chance of rain, but as the Summer  progresses, the likelihood of rain increases, as in Autumn, the  average chance of rain on any...
The rotation causes the days, 24 hour periods  of light and dark based on your location on the Earth. The rotation  is important because without rotation of the earth, we would not as  easily be able to tell, or keep track of time. What we consider to  be the passage of time- 1 minute, 1 hour, 1...
California,Australia,Asia,Latin America and north america
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 is  approximately 1,266 km or 787 mi.   To reach Houston, Texas in this distance one would set out from  Tampa, Florida bearing 283.2° or WNW and follow the great circles  arc to approach Houston, Texas bearing 277° or W .  ...
Its caused by the inclination of the Earth's axis of rotation to  the plane of its orbit round the sun. Thus the longest daylight  time is on the 21 of June and it slowly decreases until it is the  shortest on the 21st of Decemberr and then it starts to increase  again.
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...
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.
The first day of winter in the Southern Hemisphere -- where you'll find the Antarctic continent -- is June 21.
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...
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.
Humid plains. it goes up to 59F degress and it can go low as -9
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...
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.
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...
Tour around nearby cities, check out the historical sites, hike a  view hills and be able to see some amazing views. Hope that helped  you can also look at tourgide.com I think
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
If the earth continues to warm, then most regions will become  warmer and drier. Some lands that are suitable for animals and  crops 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...
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.
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...
The average temperature of the US will range from a high of 70.7  degrees 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).
You can find Semi-arid climates in Southwestern Russia and Central Asia
Chance of precipitation means changes of rain. Precipitation is  basically rain. This term is often used in hydrology and in weather  updates etc.
same as in the northen hemisphere The average time from the September equinox to the December solstice is about 89 days and 20½ hours.
Because of the axial tilt of the earth.
The science of global warming is not a hoax. No scientist has anything to gain by creating a hoax. In fact, any evidence that a research scientist has engaged in this would be career-destroying. The only employment open to trained scientists who value propaganda over research is in some sections of...
if climate i sgood it would help people to live good life . it will give people for proper living ctandard
At nightime, the plains cool faster than bodies of water. Therefore, it is warmer at seaside. At daytime, the plains warm faster than the sea. Therefore, it is cool to stay on the beach.
It depends which hemisphere you are in
I have lived here for 66 years and there isn't a record of it.
== Answer ==   The specifications are rather exact, so meaurements can be correlated. The box is painted white, facing to the north so no sunlight is in contact with the thermosensor. 4 ft. off the ground.     Answer   The "box" is known technically as a Stevenson Screen, and it is...
Temperature is important to our world because it lets you know what to wear on a day like today. For an example, you wouldn't wear shorts on a 25 degrees day. Would you? Also, if it is really cold out you wouldn't be playing soccer, or field hocky, or any other sport you would normally play in the...
No it si caused by tectnic plates colliding
Yes. Since the Industrial Revolution man has been burning fossil fuels in industry, transport and in the generation of electricity. This releases extra carbon that has been out of circulation for millions of years. This extra carbon dioxide is contributing to the accelerated greenhouse effect which...
Mexico has a pretty rugged topography: its median altitude is onthe 1,000-2,000 meter (3,000-6,000 feet) range. This means Mexicohas an overall warmer climate than more northern countries like theUnited States and Europe, but much of its territory is temperateand even cooler than other countries on...
Tropical (low latitude), dry, mid-latitude, high latitude, and highland. stop using the Internet and read your text book.
When air of different temperature collides, the result is usually rainfall and sometimes a storm.. A warm front is created when warm air meets cold air, and the warm air starts to rise over the cold air. As warm air rises, it begins to cool, and condensation occurs, resulting in rain clouds.. When...
warm climates make waters rise as ice melts.
Poverty affects people's lives in various ways including bad  health. Poor nutrition, being hungry, lack of education,  unemployment, and discrimination are other ways poverty affects  people.
  A windsock provides both wind direction and windspeed. So long as you have at least 3 knots of wind the sock will provide wind direction +/- 5 degrees. When wind speed is at least 15 knots (17 mph) the sock will be fully erect (no sagging). Windsocks are designed per the FAA to withstand up to...
Al-Battani (850-922) was a Muslim astronomer who accurately determined the length of the solar year as being 365 days, 5 hours, 46 minutes and 24 seconds. Reference:- *http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mu%E1%B8%A5ammad_ibn_J%C4%81bir_al-%E1%B8%A4arr%C4%81n%C4%AB_al-Batt%C4%81n%C4%AB *http://www...
Humans, when we began burning fossil fuels (coal, oil and naturalgas).
maybe because its warm there then here
Because the air is thinner there is less air for the rotors to push down on. The long standing world record at the current times is held by aerospatiale test pilot Jean BoUlet who flew the M1-12 lamma to a height of 40,005 ft, On the same flight he also grabbed the record for longest autorotation...
The Dust Bowl: this was part of Oklahoma, Kansas, and Texas  affected by severe windstorms and erosion in the early 1930s.
  you can drink a glass of water :Phehehehhahaha
Climate is a good influence to plants animals and humans because plants needed water to grow ,people and animals need to live where there is a water.
ice cap ..... Antarticia Greenland and Alaska are just some ex.
A station model is a circle that tells you the temperature,amount of cloud cover,winmd direction, and wind speed.
  The earth is tittled and it goes around the sun's ray's 3 that is how the seasons are there.  
Droughts occur in East Antarctica the most, because, even though there is ice and snow, it drys up very quickly. There isn't much actual precipitation lately, either, so that has an effect on it as well.
Droughts can be predicted up to a point. Meteorologists can use current and past weather patterns and climate trends to determine whether or not these meteorological influences will result in reduced rain in a particular region. The El Nino weather pattern, for example, brings dry conditions to...
The two issues are hardly related. . Littering causes huge damage to marine life, birds and otheranimals, mostly from discarded plastic. But it hardly contributesto global warming, except from the fact that recycling all thatplastic would save the energy used to replace it. Any saving ofenergy...
Global warming is happening. It is caused by the build-up in theatmosphere of greenhouse gases, particularly carbon dioxide, fromthe burning of fossil fuels (coal, oil and natural gas) inindustry, transport and the generation of electricity. We have alsodestroyed the great world forests that used to...
the woods belong to a man who lives in the village
a drought affects water supply by evaporating it. because it is so hot water evaporates faster than normal resulting in a large drought
Climate change is one of our greatest environmental, social and economic threats. The warming of the climate system is unequivocal, says the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Observations show increases in global average air and ocean temperatures, widespread melting of snow and ice,...
It is 69-113 degrees Fahrenheit.
