    ‘Low pressure atmospheric systems have more of a short term impact than high pressure systems.’ Discuss. Low pressure atmospheric systems are also known as depressions or cyclones and they form in mid- and high-latitudes. They are formed by the mixing of cold and warm air, the warm air is lighter, so it rises above the denser, cold air and forms a centre of low pressure. High pressure atmospheric systems are also known as anticyclones and have very different characteristics to depressions....

    Discuss the Impacts of Storm Events on the British Isles and evaluate the Responses to them (40 marks). In October 1987, the worst storm ever to hit the British Isles struck.

    Other Aids in Weather Prediction Weather scientists have many tools available to aid them in preparing their forecasts. Atmospheric cross-sections—such as in Figure 7-16 on page 124—help give a three-dimensional view of weather conditions. Radar—which stands for RAdio Detection And Ranging instrument—reflects radio electromagnetic energy off the aerosols of precipitation and clouds. This gives forecasters information about the intensity and distance of approaching storms. A new Doppler...

When we had a drought a few summers ago, too, it was hard for farmers to grow their crops and to supply...

    If earth were either all land or all water and did not rotate on its axis, a large convection cell would form in each hemisphere with the colder and denser air at the poles sinking to the surface and flowing toward the tropics. There, it would force the warm air already at the equator to rise, and then it would cool and flow back toward the poles. The problem with this proposal is that Earth does rotate from west to east. This rotation causes the Coriolis effect, wherein moving particles such...

    Humans have tried to predict the weather for millions of years. Our ancestors monitored changes in their environment along with the behaviour of animals to help them predict the weather. Through development of our understanding, of the atmospheric patterns and the relationship to weather dynamics, today it is much easier to forecast a more accurate weather prediction. To better understand the mechanisms which control our weather and climate, we have to look at the Earth’s atmosphere. In...
