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.
Answer not as cold as the new england colony but not as warm as the southern colony but that climate was good enough for the growing seasons. Answer The climate in New York during 1600-1700 was between hot and cold. It was sort of like it is now but just a bit warmer.

The heat from that warmer water escapes into the atmosphere as it travels, creating warmer, rainier weather than might otherwise be expected.

you should specify which ice age; there have been hundreds. As far as why, that is a great question, and I don't think anyone has the answer. Ice ages are tied pretty close with atmospheric carbon dioxide levels. Carbon dioxide, you have probably heard, is a greenhouse gas, meaning it traps heat on …
