  • Long-term weather patterns of an area
  • Weather
  • Current state of the troposphere
  • Short term variations

3
Climatology
  • The study of Earths climate and the factors that
    affect past, present, and future climatic changes

4
Normals
  • Standard values for a location
  • Average values over a long period of time

5
What Causes Different Climates?
  • Topography

Climate Change
11
Long-Term Climatic Change
  • Climates change over extremely long periods of
    time
  • Ice Ages Periods of extensive glacial coverage
  • Most recent ended
  • 10,000 years ago
  • Temps dropped 5C

12
Short-Term Climatic Change
  • Caused by regular variations in daylight, temp,
    and weather patterns
  • Examples
  • Seasons
  • El Nino (Warm ocean current)
