low pressure belt and the temperate low pressure zone. Though both are low pressure systems, their weather and heat transfer processes are very different. Their diversion can be viewed under The equatorial zones are distinguished by a hot and wet climate all year round, yet the temperate zones are typified by less stable areas. The temperature difference between the equator and the poles generates a circulation system which redistributes heat from low latitudes to high latitudes. The rising and...

 WHAT IS CLIMATE? Have you ever wondered why one area of the world is a desert, another a grassland, and another a rainforest?

Climate Change

Climate change Climate change is a significant and lasting change in the statistical distribution of weather patterns over periods ranging from decades to millions of years. It may be a change in average weather conditions, or in the distribution of weather around the average conditions (i.e., more or fewer extreme weather events). Climate change is caused by factors that include oceanic processes (such as oceanic circulation), variations in solar radiation received by Earth, plate tectonics and...

Climate Change

Climate Change in Developing Countries Over the past decade, human activity has started to cause an increased rate of negative change to our climate. Although climate change is a worldwide problem no one will feel the impact as harshly as third world countries such many parts of Africa, Asia, and South America. These countries are estimated to be hit the hardest by climate change even though they did the least to cause it. Developing countries have been struggling over the past few years on their...

Egypt's Climate

The climate in Egypt is generally moderate; it is mostly hot or warm during the day, and cool at night. In the coastal regions, daytime average temperatures range between a minimum 140C in winter and maximum 300C in summer. In deserts the temperatures vary considerably, especially in summer; when they may range from 7°C at night, to 52 °C during the day. While the winter temperatures in deserts do not fluctuate so wildly, they can be as low as 0 °C at night, and as high as 18 °C during the day. Egypt...

Tundra Climate

TUNDRA CLIMATE The tundra biome is characterized by extremely cold temperatures and treeless, frozen landscapes. There are two types of tundra, the arctic tundra and the alpine tundra . ARCTIC TUNDRA The arctic tundra is located in the extreme northern hemisphere around the North Pole. This area experiences low amounts of precipitation and extremely cold temperatures for most of the year. The arctic tundra typically receives less than 10 inches of precipitation per year (mostly in the form of...

Effects of climate change

With Focus on the British Isles how in 50 years time will climate change effect plant productivity and biodiversity. http://www.pnas.org/content/104/50/19686.full Plant productivity is expected to be strongly affected by climate change within the next 50 years. Lobell et al. (2011) showed that climate trends since 1980 were large enough in many countries to offset a significant proportion of the potential increases in average crop yields due to technological advances, CO2 fertilization and other...
