Chrissy Warrilow: An Environmental Phenomenon

488 Words2 Pages

An environmental phenomena is an unusual, natural event that occurs in nature without the help of any man-made influence. Examples like floods, earthquakes, volcanoes, and tornadoes are common, but other odd occurrences such as frost flowers, basalt columns, and penitentes (snow resembling teeth stuck in the ground). They can be extremely dangerous, or just an amazing sight. Things like volcanic lightning, "As if volcanic eruptions or lightning weren’t bad enough on their own, they can sometimes come together to form volcanic lightning, also known as a dirty thunderstorm.” (8 Amazing Natural Phenomena, Lisa Winter). Using scientific tools to measure certain signs, like small shocks being sensed by today’s seismic sensors to indicate an earthquake. …show more content…

“Meteorologists are able to predict the changes in weather patterns by using several different tools. They use these tools to measure atmospheric conditions that occurred in the past and present, and they apply this information to create educated guesses about the future weather.” (Students Ask: How Do Meteorologists Predict The Weather?, Chrissy Warrilow) From previous experiences, we know that certain levels of air pressure, temperatures, and wind speeds will lead to different kinds of weather-thus the use of science to explain when and why environmental phenomena occurs. We can be sure of this since scientists are constantly using the scientific method to show proof of technology being able to pick of early signs that phenomenas will
