BY: ZACHARY WILLIAMSON BRIAN RUSIN ZACKARY SIKORSKI ALYSSA SEE TROPICAL PARADISE HOW IS A TROPICAL CLIMATE AFFECTED BY BODIES OF WATER ,ALTITUDE ,LATITUDE ,AND WIND? THE OCEANS CHANGE TEMPERATURE AND WHEN THE OCEAN'S TEMPERATURE CHANGES IN THE FIRST FEW FEET THE AIR AROUND THE WATER WARMS GIVING THE PLACES NEAR THE WATER IN THE TROPICS HOT SUMMERS AND COOL WINTERS THE HIGHER YOU GO AND THE MORE ALTITUDE YOU GAIN THE CLIMATE GETS COLDER THE HIGHER THE LATTITUDE THE COLDER THE CLIMATE BECAUSE THE SUNS RAYS DONT TOUCH HIGHER LATTITUDES SO ITS NOT AS WARM AS AT THE EQUATOR THE WIND AFFECTS THE CLIMATE BY TAKING COLD AIR AND MOVING THROUGH THE ATMOSPHERE COOLING EVERYWHERE OFF THERE ARE FOUR DIFFERENT TYPES OF CLIMATES TEMPERATE, TROPICAL, DESERT, AND POLAR. CLIMATE: CLIMATE IS THE ENVIRONMENTAL WEATHER CONDITIONS IN A CERTAIN AREA CLIMATE IS ALSO A LONG TERM WEATHER PATTERN TROPICAL TEMPERATE POLAR DESERT TROPICAL CLIMATE PLACES WITHIN THE TROPICAL CLIMATE AREA ARE EXTREAMLY WARM YEAR ROUND. TROPICAL PLACES ALSO HAVE ALOT OF RAIN AND MOISTURE THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT A TROPICAL CLIMATE. IN A TROPICAL CLIMATE YOU WOULD WEAR BERMUDAS AND T-SHIRTS. IN A TROPICAL CLIMATE YOU WOULD SEE BENGAL TIGERS, BOA CONSTRICTORS, CHIMPANZEES, AND GORILLAS IN A TROPICAL CLIMATE YOU WILL SEE HUNDREDS OF PLANTS IKE THE ICE PLANT, IMPATIENS, AND AN INCH PLANT. THEY ALSO EAT BANANAS, COFFEE, PAPAYAS AND MANGOS FARMING, FISHING, AND TOURISM ARE THEIR MAIN WAY OF EARNING MONEY IN THE TROPICS THEY USE MANY METHODS TO FARM. SOME METHODS ARE PLANT PROPAGATION, BUCKET DRIP IRRIGATION, AND CROP ROTATION. THEIR FOOD SOURCES ARE AGRICULTURE, FISHING AND LIVESTOCK EXAMPLES OF WATER SOURCES ARE RIVERS, STREAMS & RAINFALL SHELTER IN TROPICAL CLIMATE COULD CONSIST OF A CONSTRUCTED HOME, A HUT, A BAMBOO STRUCTURE OR CLAY BUILDINGS THE MATERIALS USED TO BUILD HOUSES IN THE TROPICS MAY BE TERMITE RESISTENT BOARDS, ALUMINUM, STEEL, COPPER, SAND-CEMENT BLOCKS, BAMBOO OR CLAY DEPENDING ON THE TYPE OF STRUCTURE. CLIMATE WEATHER WEATHER IS THE DAY-TO-DAY STATE OF THE ATMOSPHERE AND ITS SHORT-TERM (MINUTES TO WEEKS) VARIATION. POPULARLY, IS THOUGHT OF AS THE COMBINATTION OF, TEMPERATURE, HUMIDITY, PRECIPITATION, CLOUDINESS, VISABILITY, AND WIND. WE TALK ABOUT THE WEATHER IN TERMS OF "WHAT WILL IT BE LIKE TODAY?", "HOW HOT IS IT RIGHT NOW?", AND "WHEN WILL THAT STORM HIT OUR SECTION OF THE COUNTRY?" CLIMATE IS DEFINED AS STATISTICAL WEATHER INFORMATION THAT DESCIBES THE VARIATION OF WEATHER AT A GIVEN PLACE FOR A SPECIFIED INTERVAL. IN POPULAR USAGE, IT REPRESENTS THE SYNTHESIS OF WEATHER OF A LOCALITY AVERAGED OVER SOME PERIOD (USUALLY 30 YEARS) PLUS STATISTACS OF WEATHER EXTREME WEATHER PATTERN "TROPICAL" IS SOMETIMES USED IN A GENERAL SENSE FOR A TROPICAL CLIMATE TO MEAN WARM TO HOT AND MOIST YEAR-ROUND, OFTEN WITH THE SENSE OF LUSH VEGETATION. MANY TROPICAL AREAS HAVE A DRY AND WET SEASON. THE WET SEASONS OR RAINY SEASON, IS THE TIME OF YEAR, COVERING ONE OR MORE MONTHS, WHEN MOST OF THE AVERAGE ANNUAL RAINFALL IN A REGION FALLS. THE TERM GREEN SEASON IS ALSO SOMETIMES USED AS A EUPHEMISM BY TOURIST AUTHORITIES. AREAS WITH WET SEASONS ARE DISSEMINATED ACROSS PORTIONS OF THE TROPICS AND SUBTROPICS. UNDER THE KOPPEN CLIMATE CLASSIFICATION, FOR TROPICAL CLIMATES, A WET SEASON MONTH IS DEFINED AS A MONTH WHERE AVERAGE PRECIPITATION IS 60 MILLIMETERS (2.4 IN) OR MORE. TROPICAL RAINFORESTS TECHNICALLY DO NOT HAVE DRY OR WET SEASONS, SINCE THEIR RAINFALL IS EQUALLY DISTRIBUTED THROUGH THE YEAR. SOME AREAS WITH PRONOUNCED RAINY SEASONS SEE A BREAK IN RAINFALL DURING MID-SEASON WHEN THE INTERTROPICAL CONVERGENCE ZONE OR MONSOON TROUGH MOVES POLE WARD OF THEIR LOCATION DURING THE MIDDLE OF THE WARM SEASON. WHY I WOULD LIVE IN A TROPICAL CLIMATE
I WOULD WANT TO LIVE IN THE TROPICS BECAUSE IT HAS TROPICAL PLANTS AND ANIMALS THAT ARE SPECIES NATIVE TO THE TROPICS. COCONUT PALMS ARE IN THE TROPICS, ALONG WITH BEAUTIFUL FORESTS. THE BLUE MORPH A KIND OF BUTTERFLY LIVES IN THE TROPICS AND THEY ARE VERY PRETTY. THERE ARE BEACHES IN NAPLES, FLORIDA LINED WITH COCONUT TREES WHICH IS AN EXAMPLE OF A TROPICAL CLIMATE AND ALTHOUGH IT LIES IN THE SUBTROPICS OVER A HUNDRED MILES NORTH OF THE TROPIC OF CANCER, THE WARM WATERS OF THE GULF OF MEXICO GIVE IT A MONTHLY MEAN TEMPERATURE NEVER UNDER 18 DEGREES CELSIUS (64 DEGREES FAHRENHEIT), CLASSIFYIING IT'S CLIMATE AS TROPICAL. IN CONCLUSION, I WOULD WANT TO LIVE IN THE TROPICS.
