A weather forecast is a prediction of the weather that's going to happen tomorrow and over the next few coming days. A weather report is a summary of the weather that is happe…ning now.
A weather watch is when there is a possiblity that severe weather may occur but they do not know for sure. A warning is when they are almost positive that it will happen.
A tornado/thunderstorm watch means that weather conditions are good for tornado/thunderstorm. A tornado/thunderstorm warning, however, means that conditions are extreme and a …thunderstorm or tornado is likely. Conditions for either storm are very good at this stage.
Weathering is the breaking down of rock into smaller and smaller particles. Weathering processes include frost wedging, acid rain dissolution, root growth, wind particl…e abrasion, heat expansion cracking, hydraulic fracture, and rock tumbling in rivers and streams. Erosion is the movement of weathered material from one place to another place through the agents of erosion: wind, water, ice, and gravity. In tandem, weathering and erosion act to lower the high points, and raise the low points on the surface of the planet.
A watch means just what it says...watch...watch out...a certain condition is right for something (tornado or something) to occur. Warning means just what it says...you are bei…ng warned that this tornado etc is coming your way and almost here. So a warning is worse since something has been seen.
The differences are that mechanical weathering breaks rocks into little pieces.. Chemical weathering not only breaks the rock but dissolves it.
chemical weathering changes the chemical composition of rocks whereas physical weathering breaks the rocks into smaller fragments.
mechanical weathering is the breaking down of rocks without chemical change in the rocks. for example frost wedging is a type of mechanical weathering where water gets into cr…acks in rocks and then freezes and expands, breaking up the rock. chemical weathering changes the rock chemically. rust forming on iron is an example of chemical weathering.
\n. \nWeathering is the decomposition of earth rocks, soils and their minerals through direct contact with the planet's atmosphere. Metamorphism is the solid-state recrystall…isation of pre-existing rocks due to changes in heat, pressure, and/or introduction of fluids. SImply put, weathering is the break down of rock (wear and tear) and Metamorphism is rock changing due to Heat,Pressure, and Chemically active fluids
Weather is a condition of the sky. Season when the turns around the Sun, it causes it.
humid has a high humidity level. hot means high temperature.
mechanical weathering is not changed chemically.
Weathering is the mechanical and chemical hammer that breaks down and sculpts the rocks. Erosion transports the fragments away.
Physical weathering is the disintegration of rock into smaller pieces without any chemical change in the rock; this is most likely in areas of bare rock where there is no …vegetation to protect the rock from extremes of weather e.g. freeze or thaw and exfoliation (or onion weathering). Chemical weathering-the decomposition (or rotting) of rock caused by a chemical change within that rock; sea water causes chemical weathering of cliffs.
WEATHER: Weather is basically the way the atmosphere is behaving,mainly with respect to its effects upon life and human activities.Most people think of weather in terms of tem…perature, humidity,precipitation, cloudiness, brightness, visibility, wind, andatmospheric pressure, as in high and low pressure. In most places,weather can change from minute-to-minute, hour-to-hour, day-to-day,and season-to-season. CLIMATE: Climate is the description of the long-term pattern ofweather in a particular area. Some scientists define climate as the average weather for aparticular region and time period, usually taken over 30-years.When scientists talk about climate, they're looking at averages ofprecipitation, temperature, humidity, sunshine, wind velocity,phenomena such as fog, frost, and hail storms, and other measuresof the weather that occur over a long period in a particular place. For example, after looking at rain gauge data, lake and reservoirlevels, and satellite data, scientists can tell if during a summer,an area was drier than average. If it continues to be drier thannormal over the course of many summers, than it would likelyindicate a change in the climate. In the context of climate change: Weather varies all the time, butclimate doesn't vary nearly as quickly. The Earth's climate is changing relatively quickly (relative to itsusual pace) now due to an enhanced greenhouse effect caused byhumans emissions of greenhouse gases, and most locations areexperiencing a net warming as a result. This doesn't mean it can'tget cold anymore, or even that record cold temperatures will nolonger. But it does mean that, in most areas, heat waves (orunusual warmth in the winter) will be warmer and cold snaps (orcool periods in summer) will not be as cold. The time scale of climate is not nearly as intuitive as that ofweather, so even people who understand this have a tendency to beinfluenced only by the most recent weather they experience. You canobserve this effect by watching the news during both cold snaps andheat waves, which will be either given as evidence for or againstthe warming of the Earth. In reality, you cannot attribute eitherto a changing climate due to the small spatial and temporal scaleof these events; weather variability will always be of greatermagnitude than observed changes in climate.
Physical weathering is breaking down of rocks by weather that does not change their chemical components. Chemical weathering is weathering that breaks rocks down by a chem…ical change.
During cold weather, molecules in the air move more slowly than they do during hot weather. The earth is actually closer to the sun in winter time; the tilt of the axis (north…ern hemisphere away from sun) is what deprives the earth of the sun's heat.
