One of the main weather parameters for sailing and other water sports
The Coriolis force has a huge impact on the weather. It's the power that spins cyclones and anticyclones, and it also affects the direction of trade winds and sea currents.
Predicting the weather by looking at the form of clouds? It is possible! Today we will get acquainted with cirrus uncinus clouds - the precursors of weather changes.
This is the same rain, but it evaporates before reaching the surface of the earth. The reason for this is low ambient humidity. That is, dry air in the way of drops tends to saturate with moisture and "absorbs" them.
Today we will talk about air stability and most importantly - how and why to distinguish stable and unstable atmospheric stratification.
It looks scary, but in fact, it's the last thing you should be afraid of when flying.
Hurricane activity peaks in late August and throughout September
A dust storm occurs when a strong wind (more than 10 m/s) makes a huge amount of dust rise up into the atmosphere - millions of tons! This dust can be transported up to several thousand kilometers.
Basic meteorology for yachtmen, sailing guides to boats, licenses and racings, routes, and events in 2020
Today we will talk about a phenomenon that affects the weather forecast and helps planes fly faster.
Maybe you happened to see swirling columns of dust, sand, ashes, leaves or anything else walking across the ground on a video (or even live?)? They are often called «devils» and we are going to talk about them today.
An ocean current is the movement of ocean water from area A to area B.
A weather front is a place of collision of air masses, a boundary that is constantly in motion. If cold air moves into warm air territory, it is a cold front; if warm air moves into cold air territory, it is a warm front.
Wind can only drive the upper layers of water. At great depths, water movement is often caused by another force — created by the difference in water density.
Light consists of particles that behave like waves. These waves are different in length, and light of different wavelengths is perceived by our eyes as different colors.
Today we will talk about one of the most beautiful natural phenomena.
Thermohaline circulation is what allows water from the surface of the ocean to mix with deeper waters.
