Seasons

How do the seasons of Australia compare to the seasons of countries in the Northern Hemisphere?

The seasons are reversed.

When it is spring or summer in the northern hemisphere, it is the autumn (fall) or the winter in Australia.

This is caused by the northern part of the world being tipped the opposite way (towards or away) from the sun to Australia.

The seasons in Australia and other countries in the Southern Hemisphere are reversed from those in the Northern Hemisphere. When it is summer in the Southern Hemisphere, it is winter in the Northern Hemisphere, and so forth. For example, the Australian summer starts in December, while winter begins in July.

What causes the seasons in the northern hemisphere to be the opposite of those in the southern hemisphere?

The earth revolves around the sun but it's tilted. The angle of the tilt doesn't change just the position of the planet. The summer is when that part of the globe is tilted towards the sun. If the northern hemisphere is tilted toward the sun the southern hemisphere would be tilted away. The part tilted towards the sun gets more sunlight and is warmer. The part tilted away wouldn't get as much light and would be colder.

Definitions

What is the definition of hemisphere?

A hemisphere is one-half of a sphere, where the sphere may be divided by any plane that includes the center of the sphere.

In practice, there are various uses for the term.

Geography

Half of the terrestrial globe, or a projection of the Earth's surface in a map or picture. The most common hemispheric divisions are Northern and Southern or Eastern and Western. The northern and southern hemispheres are separated by the equator, and the eastern and western are defined by their longitudinal direction from the Prime Meridian -- each includes 180° of the Earth's surface.

In common use, the continents of North and South America make up the Western Hemisphere, including almost all of the Atlantic Ocean and about 60% of the Pacific.

Automotive

The term hemisphere (hemi) is used to indicate that the top of each cylinder is a hollow hemisphere rather than flattened.

Why are the seasons different in the northern and southern hemispheres?

The Earth is tilted on its axis, and depending on the time of the year, either the northern or southern hemisphere is tilted toward the Sun, while the other half must, of course, be tilted away.

In June, the Northern hemisphere tilts towards the sun. This makes the day longer and the Sun is higher in the sky, giving what sunlight hits the ground more intensity. This is summer.

At the same time, the Southern hemisphere is experiencing winter, with shorter days and the Sun lower in the sky, giving less intense sunlight.

When December comes, the situation is reversed, with winter in the Northern hemisphere and summer in the Southern.

Which continents are in the Northern Hemisphere?

The continents of North America and Europe are completely in the Northern Hemisphere, since they are both north of the Equator. Almost all of Asia, except Indonesia, is also in the Northern Hemisphere.

The upper half of Africa and part of northern South America are in the Northern Hemisphere, giving this hemisphere about 67.2 % of the Earth's total land area.

Only the continents of Australia and Antarctica are completely in the Southern Hemisphere. some continent in the northern hemishere they are North America,Asia,and Europe.

During which Northern Hemisphere season is Earth moving fastest in its orbit?

The Earth moves fastest during the Northern Hemisphere winter. This is because the Earth is closest to the Sun during the Northern Hemisphere winter and according to Kepler's Law of Areas (and the conservation of angular momentum), planets move the fastest at perihelion and slowest at aphelion.

Does the northern or southern hemisphere have more land?

The Northern Hemisphere has much more land than the southern. About 7/8 of the world's land area is in the Northern Hemisphere.

Even the Land Hemisphere (half of Earth's surface containing the maximum land area) is still slightly more than half water. Oceans cover 70% of Earth's surface.

Why seasons in the two hemispheres opposite with respect to revolution?

cause the equator goes round the differ ways to the hemisphere so the north hemisphere goes right and the south hemisphere goes left then the equator is the thing which moves it !

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The earth leans from one angle to the next. The north axes is always facing the northern star and as the earth rotates the sun, that's when the angle comes in. Ones part of the earth is closer than the other. Thus, opposite seasons. both of the angles stop at ether the tropic lines (Cancer and Capricorn). When it's fall and spring, there is no angle. At that time, the line that it "stops" at is the equator.

Hope that helps.

When the sun is rays are shining directly on the northern hemisphere what are they doing in the southern hemisphere?

The Earth is close to a sphere so there is but one single point on the sphere that has the Sun directly overhead at any one time. When this point is in the Northern hemisphere (roughly from the 21 of March to the 20 of September) the Southern hemisphere is less directly hit by the rays of the Sun and experiences somewhat cooler seasons than when the rays of the Sun strike more vertically.
