The warm and moist air rises over the ocean surface, this air moves up and away from the surface and then there is less air left near the surface, warm air rises causing an area of lower air pressure and cause hurricane formation that severely affect the nearby areas. In this we will discuss the hurricane formation, their causes and effects on climate and populations and how can
The time span of a tornado is about a couple of hours when a hurricane can last up to 3 weeks. Therefore, hurricanes will also do more damage to the area because they are living at a longer time span compared to a tornado. Tornadoes can take out power plants and also destroy homes but hurricanes are a little more dangerous. Hurricanes can do anything a tornado does but more. They can cause floods in the area and they could flood up to the entire city.
In most of the recent four billion years, the temperature of the earth’s surface has remained within a relatively narrow range. However, climate did change suddenly and extremely in the past. Studying extremes Earth's climate may lead enhancement of climate models which enable experts to predict the magnitude and consequences of climate change, a popular topic in recent decades. Question 8: How has life shaped Earth—and how has Earth shaped life? It is elusive to say how life and earth affect each other.
The movement of the water is caused by multiple factors such as the prevailing winds, the rotation of the earth and salinity. Ocean currents that are caused by prevailing winds are called drift currents. The prevailing winds are winds that blow from one general direction to a particular point on the earth. The winds cause friction on the water causing the water to move in the same direction. That is why the patterns of wind and ocean currents are mostly identical.
Natural disasters threaten the existence of species and the environment .A natural disaster is a force of nature that mankind can not control.Natural disasters include floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, volcanoes, tsunamis,earthquakes,and droughts.Between a hurricane and tornado the natural disaster that holds more danger is the hurricane because of its effects to the damage of property,environment,and death toll. Hurricanes are one of the many natural disasters that occur on earth.According to a national geographic article hurricanes are,”giant,swirling tropical storms that can pack wind speeds over 160 miles an hour and unleash more than 2.4 trillion gallons of rain a day.”Hurricanes have a lot of precipitation which means that
5.1 Introduction to Climate and Weather According to Oxford Dictionaries, climate means the weather conditions mainly in a region overally or over a sustained period of time. Climate takes hundreds, thousands, or even millions of years to change. In some cases, the climate of a place is portrayed with charts this way.
1.0 OVERVIEW OF THE TOPIC The weather is changing. Adverse weather patterns are increasing around the world. Natural catastrophes and particularly severe weather events are increasing in frequency and severity all over the globe. Extreme rains, heat waves, cold snaps, blizzards, floods and droughts are just some of the many weather events that are impacting peoples’ life and company’s profitability. For many businesses a small deviation from normal weather patterns can adversely affect their financial performance.
There is no question that acid rain has had a profound impact on the environment and on human lives. In this essay I will discuss the uneven distribution acid rain as well as the negative and positive effects thereof. If we talk about acid rain we have to know exactly what acid rain is. Acid rain is a combination of sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxide, oxygen and water that creates a diluted mixture of sulfuric acid and nitric acid in the atmosphere. This mixture can be deposited in a number of ways which includes rain, fog, mist, snow and even dust.
Droughts are expected to become more widespread, whereas increases in heavy precipitation events will lead to more flooding. Water quality is central for ecosystems, human health and sanitation, agriculture, and other purposes. An increase in temperature, a change in precipitation, rising sea levels, and extreme events could weaken water quality in many regions. Specifically, saltwater from rising sea level and storm surges damage water supplies in coastal areas and on small islands. Moreover, an increase in water temperatures can cause photosynthetic organisms and possibly an increase of bacteria in water
Whenever mentioning about the environment, there are plenty of things that could be brought into discussion. For example, air pollution, water pollution, biodiversity loss,etc. you name it. And one of the most important issues that the scientists, politicians as well as us - the ordinary people are concerning about is the changing of the climate. So what is it?
