Climate

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...

climate change

Topic: Climate Change Question: What are the factors that affect climate change? Causes of climate change The earth's climate is dynamic and always changing through a natural cycle. What the world is more worried about is that the changes that are occurring today have been speeded up because of man's activities. These changes are being studied by scientists all over the world who are finding evidence from tree rings, pollen samples, ice cores, and sea sediments. The causes of climate change can...

Climate Change

Arctic sea ice loss Main articles: Polar ice packs and Climate change in the Arctic The decline in Arctic sea ice, both in extent and thickness, over the last several decades is further evidence for rapid climate change.[60] Sea ice is frozen seawater that floats on the ocean surface. It covers millions of square miles in the polar regions, varying with the seasons. In the Arctic, some sea ice remains year after year, whereas almost all Southern Ocean or Antarctic sea ice melts away and reforms...

Why are there different forests and deserts, and why are there different types of life in each area? It is because of Climate. Climate is the characteristic condition of the atmosphere near the earth's surface at a certain place on earth. It is the long-term weather of that area (for at least 30 years). This includes the region's general pattern of weather conditions...

turbines that exploit Britain's climate, hydro-power which captures energy from falling water, and wave power which captures energy from the sea are some of the main sources. The potential for the effective use of renewable sources of the main sources. The potential for the effective use of renewable sources of energy in this country is huge, but its implementation is poor. What is the cost of using non-renewable sources? Most serious of all is the contribution to climate change. We have been steadily...

The Climate Crisis

The Climate Crisis       Global warming: an increase in the earth's atmospheric and oceanic temperatures widely predicted to occur due to an increase in the greenhouse effect resulting especially from pollution.       Given the definition it may not sound as scary as it actually is. The whole process of global warming is a science in itself. It may also be known as `the climate crisis' because scientists believe that the occurrence of such extreme temperatures will bring our earth to turmoil...

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...
