1 Weather vs Climate © The GlobalEd 2 Project

2 Essential Questions 1.How do weather and climate differ from one another? 2.Is there a relationship between climate and weather? 3.How do scientists determine the climate of a region? © The GlobalEd 2 Project

3 Enduring Understandings 1.Weather changes on a daily basis; Climate refers to trends in weather patterns over an extended period of time - years). 2. Climate data comes from weather data; Scientists keep day-to-day weather statistics for 30 years in order to draw conclusions about local and regional climates; When a location has 30 years of weather statistics, meteorologists can generalize and comment on the climate of a particular area. © The GlobalEd 2 Project

4 Key Vocabulary Meteorologist – Scientist that studies the Earths atmospheric phenomena. Climatologist – Scientist that studies the climate © The GlobalEd 2 Project

5 Why is it Important to Understand Climate? Climatologists need to understand past weather in order to develop accurate diagrams and data about climate change. Global warming data is collected by gathering climate variables over time © The GlobalEd 2 Project

6 Trends in Climate Change Temperatures from are on the rise possibly due to global warming. With average contiguous United States temperatures rising over the course of the last century, the mean temperatures seem to be accelerating at unprecedented levels.
