Types of Clouds formation and their Characteristics: In this blog post, you will get all the knowledge about the different types of clouds, Types of Clouds formation, and their Characteristics. First of all, you must know how clouds are formed. When we look at a cloud, it looks like a white, fluffy gaseous thing that moves […]
Climatology is the study of the structure of atmosphere and elements of weather and climates, climatic phenomena, climatic types and regions around the world.
Similarly, the applied climatology is a scientific use of climatic data. Due to its wide usage, it has become more popular.
Following are the topics in climatology
Firstly, it includes the Atmosphere — compositions and structure; elements of weather and climate.
Secondly, it includes Insolation — the angle of incidence and distribution; heat budget of the earth — heating and cooling of the atmosphere;
Thirdly, it includes the temperature— factors controlling the temperature; distribution of temperature — horizontal and vertical; inversion of temperature
Further, it may include Pressure — pressure belts; winds-planetary seasonal and local, air masses and fronts; tropical and extratropical cyclones
Precipitation — evaporation; condensation — dew, frost, fog, mist and cloud; rainfall — types and world distribution.
Lastly, it may include World climates — classification of Koeppen climatic variation, greenhouse effect, global warming and climatic changes.
Due to modern advances, climatology has led to the further development of geography.
As we know, revolution and rotation are the two types of motions of the earth. These motions cause various phenomena depending upon the position of the earth with respect to the sun. In this article, I will discuss the important facts about the Earth’s motion- rotation of the earth and revolution of the earth. What
Introduction As we know, the earth is not spherical rather elliptical. It is slightly flattened at the poles and bulge in the middle. Similarly, the globe is a true miniature of the earth. It becomes very difficult to locate a place on the sphere like the earth. So, the question arises, how to find or
How we can define climate change? Climate change means the change of climate over the last 100 years which is caused directly or indirectly by human activities. Mainly, climate change represents the changes in long-term weather patterns. Usually, climate change is measured in a shift of temperature, rainfall, wind pattern, or more. World’s temperature has
Earth’s Atmosphere The atmosphere is a mixture of many gases which support life on earth. The earth’s atmosphere provides a conducive environment for us. Evolution of the earth’s Atmosphere The earth came into existence about 4.6 billion years ago. It composed of gases, particles of interstellar dust and ice lumped together to form a larger
Introduction We all are familiar with rain or precipitation but, many of us do not know what are the types of precipitation and rainfall, what is the difference between hail and snow or difference between drizzle and rain etc. So, in this article, I will cover all the topic related to the types of precipitation
What are Tropical Cyclones? Tropical cyclones represent a circulatory motion of air towards a low-pressure centre. These low-pressure centres are known by various names based upon their characteristics, intensity and, distribution. The origin and development of these cyclones require the presence of some favourable conditions. In these cyclones, the wind blows counter-clockwise in the northern
Introduction In this article, I will discuss the jet streams, types of Jet stream and their characteristics. These topics are very important for the students of geography. Also, Jet Stream is a hot topic for many entrance exams like UPSC, BPSC and other state exams. After reading this article, you will easily distinguish between the
