Why does earth experience seasons?
Becuz earth rotates on its axis
The Earth's tilt on its axis and the Earth's revolution around the sun are why we have seasons in the temperate zone. As Earth revolves the sun, the Earth receives different amounts of the sun's energy due to Earth's tilt. In the Northern Hemisphere, when the Earth is tilted toward the sun we experience summer. When the Earth is tilted away from the sun, we experience winter.
Seasons are different periods of the year which are divided into Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter by the changing climate and weather of the Earth. The seasons of the Earth are determined by the Earth's yearly revolution around the Sun and also by the Earth's tilt. Due to the Earth's tilt the Northern and Southern Hemisphere experience opposite seasons during the same time. Furthermore, locations closer to the equator experience dry and rainy seasons rather than…
Why do some countries in the world experience the four seasons while countries like Singapore do not?
Countries that are closer to the equator experience less variety in their seasons. Singapore is in that region. Countries that are further from the equator experience the four seasons. It is all down to the way the Earth tilts. It has more affect on countries that are further from the equator in terms of the weather extremes that are experienced.
A lot of countries experience 4 seasons. All of them are situated away from the Equator, above the Tropic of Cancer and Capricorn. Some examples are the Countries on the Northern America, mainly USA and Canada, most or all of the European countries. Some countries in Asia experience 4 seasons too, such as China, Korea (North and South), Japan. Australia and New Zealand experience 4 seasons too, but their cycle is different from the countries…
Mercury has no seasons, and would not have them even if it were Earth-like (which it is not). This is because it does not have a tilt as great as Earth has, compared to its orbital plane. However, Mercury also has no real atmosphere. And most places on the surface experience 88 Earth days of searing heat followed by 88 Earth days of incredible cold. So there is no temperate zone to experience a yearly…
All places on earth experince sesons. In has to do with the positon you are on earth. If you are in the northern hemishere and it is summer, it is winter in the southern hemishere. On the equater the weather stays relatively the same, but there still are diffrent seasons and slightly different temperatures.
There are two seasons- rainy and dry. The equator is near the middle of the earth so it does not experience spring summer fall and winter like the rest of the planet. However, as earth is still tilted, the equator does experience some seasonal change. The dry season is not dry dry, but it that season simply has less rainfall than the rainy season.
There are no seasons on Mercury. Mercury has a very slight axial tilt to the plane of its orbit, about 2° compared to about 23.5° for Earth. So there would be extremely little seasonal change. However, Mercury also has no real atmosphere. And most places on the surface experience 88 Earth days of searing heat followed by 88 Earth days of incredible cold. So there is no temperate zone to experience a yearly cycle of…
The best bit of evidence is that northern and southern hemisphere esperience the opposite seasons. When it is summer in the northern hemisphere, it is winter in the southern hemisphere and vice versa. If the seasons were dependent on Earth's distance from the sun, then the hemispheres would experience the same seasons at the same time.
northern and southern both experience seasons, its because the earth tilts back and forth so that during summer in the northern hemiphere the earths northern hemisphere is tilted towards then sun and is therefor closer, during this time the southern is farther away from the sun and this is their winter season
In addition to the revolution of the earth around the sun what contributes to the seasons you experience?
Seasons result from the yearly revolution of the Earth around the sun and the tilt of the earth's axis relative to the plane of revolution. In temperate and polar regions, the seasons are marked by changes in the intensity of sunlight that reaches the Earth's surface, variations of which may cause animals to go into hibernation or to migrate, and plants to be dormant.
