Meteorology and Weather

Parent Category: Atmospheric Sciences
Meteorology is the science which deals with the phenomena of the atmosphere, especially weather and weather conditions. It involves the study of the character of the atmosphere and the events and processes within it, together with the interaction between the atmosphere and the face of the earth. Weather, of course, is what occurs on the surface of the earth from day to day, whether that be rain, sunshine, heat or cold, or whatever the outside conditions are.
Puerto Lopez de Micay, a small town near the coastline of westernColombia, may be a new contender for the wettest inhabited place inthe world.. Between April 1960 and February 2012, an average annual rainfallof just over 507 inches has been recorded at the weatherobservation station here, including...
That's a very broad description. Some places have a lot of ice andsnow in winter, others have it most or all of the time. Nothingwill grow under permanent ice and snow. In the tundra, where onlythe top couple of inches of soil thaws in the brief summer, youtend to get only simple mosses. In places...
Hot Ice, Sodium Acetate, is made from vinegar and baking soda.
This question alludes to a common misconception. Warm and cold airdo not have magical properties that let on "hold" more water vaporthan the other. The answer lies in the dew point temperature (DPT).At 90 degrees a parcel of air can have a DPT of 90 degrees thusallowing a greater volume of water...
It gets cold when the sun is far away from our location like it is during the US winters due to the tilt of the earth.
The mail will run when it snows unless there is so much snow that roads are completely blocked and impassable.
Snow storms tend to develop in regions where air masses clash, and this battle zone has shifted south lately as a result of an intrusion of very cold Arctic Air. El Nino is providing additional energy to the subtropical jet stream, and that energy is able to fuel storms across the southern part of...
It is a cirrus cloud.
low clouds = stratus middle clouds = altostratus high clouds = cirrus vertical development clouds = cumulus

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...
Climate change would be my educated guess. The rays that hit the Earth used to be able to get out of the atmosphere. Now with all the air pollution the heat rays are being locked under the atmosphere, basically where us humans are located. In result the earth is warming up. Patagonia, Canada and...
Why not? Just make sure they're warm and keep an eye on them, as always.
The ground drinks the water and air underneath the surface forces its way up.
Definitely not under a tree, lamppost, or power lines. If you arestuck outdoors, a car is one of the safest places to be. Because ofthe rubber tires, you can't be struck as long as you are inside it.Indoors, stay away from the windows in case a tree is struck andfalls onto your house.

well i live in ramallah,palistine the weather here is not really that cold its like in the 70s or high 60s there might be a slight chane of snow in the begging of february
They do not. Glacierelectric is simply the name of a company.
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
Snow is likely in many parts of the UK during the first few days in February. The Met Office predicts a high chance of more snow mainly in the northeast during the latter part of February.
Salt doesn't melt snow, it just lowers the melting point so the sun or another source of heat can raise the snows temperature enough to melt.
The water is a better ground than land, so it finds the water near the islands
Atlanta in May has the most rainfall in Georgia.
I had to get my old lab book out to answer this. An enthalpy of fusion problem. You have 1 gram/ml density of water ( I know, ice is less dense, but I am too lazy to look it up ) so you have 355 grams of water. Since you are in grams and want grams; 334 Joules per gram is Heat of fusion for water....
Orography is mountainous terrain. Orographic precipitation is precipitation formed when air is forced to rise over mountains or at least large hills.
some lidgit scienist who iscovered that salt lowers the meltingpoint of ice and decided to sprkle it on roads
Here are the ones that I can find records for: . 1972-1973 . 1982-1983 . 1986-1987 . 1991-1992 . 1994-1995 . 1997-1998 . 2002-2003 . 2004-2005 . 2009-2010
No one really invented it. For many years, salt has been known tolower the freezing point of water. This happens when the salt'sions dissociate in water. The act of lowering a freezing point (orraising a boiling point) is called water's colligative property.Generally speaking, the more ions in...
No, the only thing that will happen is the ice/snow beginning tomelt.
Condensation of water vapour.
Kinetic energy is energy produced by motion/activity. Molecules become more active as they heat up. Therefore, molecules in a gaseous state would have the greatest kinetic energy.
The top of the atmosphere is not well defined. Rather, the gases(primarily nitrogen and oxygen) comprising the atmosphere graduallythin the higher one goes. Air pressure is 100 kPa at sea level(14.7 psi) and falls to 50 kPa (7.25 psi) about a mile above sealevel. Half the weight of the atmosphere is...
They face the direction in which the cold air is advancing.
pitch is a measure of the sound frequency. So high pitch equals high frequency and short wavelengths.
Live Oak Springs, CA is at an elevation of 3,891 feet. It's not uncommon for snowfall in Eastern San Diego County to go below the 3500' level. So yes, it snows in Live Oak Springs.
A "Blue Moon" hence the phrase: "once in a blue moon" meaning very seldom.
The lowest temperature ever recorded in Antarctica was -81 degrees. I think normal temperatures in interior Antarctica would be about -50.
The average precipitation per month in Brazil is 1761 mm
You have to get special access to the scripts from the creators/company. They do not just put movie scripts out into the public for multiple reasons. Your best bet but highly unlikely way is to contact the company that made the film. You need to state WHY you would like the script and HOW you will...

The answer is convection currents: the upward movement of warm air and the downward movement of cool air.
This is not true. First of all, cold is relative. What may be very cold to you may not be very cold to me. Second, the freezing temperature of water is 32F, a very common temperature in areas where it snows. However, the temperature can be 0F for days and days and not snow or it might snow on a day...
It depends upon the venting that is used, look for your vent pipeson the roof and see if any are close to open windows. If you find aparticularly close vent pipe (and you home has several vent pipes)you can add a "Studor Vent" to the top of the vent. A Studor ventis the equivalent to a one-way air...
Light, fluffy snow may way about 7 pounds per cubic foot. Averagesnow may way about 15 cubic foot. Drifted compact snow may way 20pounds or more.
Nope, the other way around. More tea, Jeffery ol' bean?
Trees stop the wind carrying rainy cloudy. where that wind stopped, it rains. so cutting trees or deforestation is to prevent rain in your region.
Carbon is neither. It's a GAS.

What is the elements of weathering
That would either be the North Pole or South Pole, depending onwhat season/time of year it is.
The two factors influence one another since air is the keyrelationship between them: the rate of motion of air and the degreeof hotness or coldness of a substance.
Possibly. If they consider it annoying, it could be a nuisance (minor crime); if the snow results in any damages, then it is vandalism.
Since lightning is an electrical current, normally in athunderstorm, little pieces of ice way up in the cloud collidetogether fast and hard, making an electrical charge, which theneventually makes an electrical current that is known as lightning.
Barometer: A gauge measure air pressure. Hygrometer: Any of various instruments for measuring the absolute or relative amount of moisture in the air Anemoeter: a gauge for determining the force or speed of the wind, and sometimes its direction; wind gauge. There is also the stormglass, a...
Upslope fog forms when air moves gently up in elevation enough forthe layer to reach saturation.
areas of rising air and low pressure . When air rises it cools, and the moisture it containscondenses out as clouds, which eventually produce precipitation.
Ice floats in water because it is less dense than water. Water, or H2O is one of the only molecules that expands when the temperature drops. Most molecules condense, coming closer together and becoming 'heavier' whereas water expands- due to the shape of the H2O molecule -making it more...
Evaporation is the process and the gas formed by liquid in heated condition is called vapours
That all depends on how much salt is in the water. Adding salt to water lowers the boiling point, but the degree to which it's lowered depends on the concentration of salt. More salt, lower boiling point.
Helium these days, for cost reasons, but hydrogen was primarilyused in the past because it's a lighter gas. For more information, check the related link below.
Norway and Italy rain the most , 3rd is UK
no one knows how many people lost there home.
Since light travels faster than sound, you can tell how many miles away a thunder storm is by counting. Lightning strikes. 5 seconds pass and you heard thunder. The thunder storm is 5 miles away.
St Martin in the Bull Ring, Birmingham is a parish church of theChurch of England. By 1808, the church spire had been struck bylightning three times.
Clouds are just condensed water vapor or ice crystals. Cloud droplets also require cloud condensation nuclei, however, which often consist of sulfate aerosols. In short, the moisture the cloud collects from condensation compresses, making it appear to be dark or dense in appearance. .
i don't know about night, but during the day the average temperature is about 86 degrees Fahrenheit, but on extremely hot days it can exceed 122 degrees Fahrenheit.
They need to know of the potential for storms and fog. String windsand large waves from storms can sink, or capisize a boat, or causeit to run aground. In a fog, a boat tuns the risk of colliding withsomething. Sailors rely on weather forecasts to avoid thesehazards.
The formation of frost is not based on temperature alone. Frost is formed when the surface area of an object is below the temperature of the surrounding atmosphere. However, the surface area does have to be below freezing (32 degrees F). The amount of water in the atmosphere, and the length of time...
325 degrees Fahrenheit equates to 162.8 degrees Celsius.
