Transcript of Meteorology / Climate

Climate
The long term average of
atmospheric conditions.
Latitude
Proximity
To Water
Orography
Planetary Winds
& Ocean Currents
Population

Atmospheric

Angle Of Insolation
In

The angle at which the

Changes to the
Duration of Insolation
Changes to

At the
Summer
Solstice
Noon AOI = (Compliment of Latitude)+Tilt
At the
Winter
Solstice
Noon AOI = (Compliment of Latitude)-Tilt
At either

What Effects can large
concentrations of
Human
Population
have on a regions
climate?
Climatic
Oscillations
El Niño -
"ENSO"
Pacific Sea surface
temperatures
off the Western Coast of
S. America become
"Uncharacteristically"
Warm.
The changing sea temperatures
causes fluxuations in the typical
direction and moisture content
of the Trade Winds, bringing
abnormally warm, moist air into
the United States.
The cycle is 3 -7 years
in length, and is a very
complex system that is
not entirely understood
Can
sometimes
be followed up
by
"La Niña"
, a period of opposite
behavior to
El Niño
.

Is climate change

Is this a problem?

Air Masses
A parcel of air that is dominated
by characteristics determined
by its source region.
Front
The leading edge of a
moving air mass, at the
Earth's surface.
Forcing Factors
H
L
Greenhouse Gases:

Water Vapor - The Water Cycle
(Weather)

Carbon Dioxide - The Carbon Cycle
(Photosynthesis/Respiration)

Methane - No Cycle to process!
(Natural Gas)
Receptacles for Carbon Dioxide:

The Biosphere - Photosynthesizing plants

The Hydrosphere - Ocean dissolving
- Glacial Ice Capture
Orbital Eccentricity

Ecliptic Angle
Solar Output
Planetary Tilt
