5 What Causes Weather? Weather is an expression of the climate system. The climate system is the interaction of the atmosphere, biosphere, and other parts of the Earth that determine weather at a time or place The Atmosphere The Biosphere The Oceans

6 Studying Climate Involves Long-term Trends Temperature Difference From Normal (°C)

10 Relating Climate and Weather for Johnson City

11 Why is the Climate System Important? The climate system determines the weather. The weather affects many of our daily decisions. Climate affects long-term decisions by humans. Climate affects long-term trends in plants and animals.

12 What do you think? The following video talks about weather, climate, and climate change. While watching the video, think about whether the terms weather and climate are used appropriately given the definitions. Click Here for Video Link

13 Evidence for Climate Change

14 Review What is the difference between climate and weather? What is one evidence for global warming? What is your opinion about global warming?

18 Seven of these indicators would be expected to increase in a warming world and observations show that they are increasing. Three would be expected to decrease and they are decreasing.

19 Vocabulary Climate Weather CO2 Trend Evidence for Global Warming Greenhouse effect Fossil fuel

20 New Vocabulary Köppen classification system Tropical climates are characterized by constant high temperature (at sea level and low elevations) all twelve months of the year have average temperatures of 18°C (64 °F) or higher. Tropical climates

21 New Vocabulary Köppen classification system Dry (arid and semiarid) climates[edit]edit These climates are characterized by the fact that actual precipitation is less than a threshold value.

22 New Vocabulary Mild Temperate/mesothermal climates These climates have an average temperature above 10 °C (50 °F) in their warmest months (April to September in northern hemisphere), and a coldest month average between 3 and 18 °C (27 and 64 °F). Dry-summer subtropical or Mediterranean climates San FranciscoMediterranean climatesSan Francisco Humid subtropical climates São Paulo, Brazil Humid subtropical climatesSão Paulo Maritime Temperate climates or Oceanic climates London, VancouverOceanic climates

23 Mild Temperate Climate

24 New Vocabulary Mild Polar climates These climates are characterized by average temperatures below 10 °C (50 °F) in all twelve months of the year

25 New Vocabulary Mild Polar climates These climates are characterized by average temperatures below 10 °C (50 °F) in all twelve months of the year
