Day to day weather pattern and Climatic
condition of a region have major influence on the living beings on earth. It
impacts all aspects of life, such as human beings, animals, plants,
agriculture, landforms etc. On daily basis one can feel the essence of weather
and climate which has considerable impact on their active life. In primitive
era civilization was grown along the river. At later stage when agriculture
practice was developed the rain-based crop pattern was identified. Different
region on earth has different form of rain pattern and results in varying
agricultural practices. The changing and different pattern of rainfall has
direct link with the local weather and global climatic condition.
How to understand Weather and Climate?
region across the globe has different seasons across the year, there are
various exceptions where it is same throughout the year. However, the major
population of human being is witnessing varying season, it may be cold, summer,
winter, rain etc. Season is typically a division in a year based on changing
In a day to day life we witness the nature of atmosphere
or our surrounding like, temperature, rainfall, humidity, cloudiness, sunshine
etc. This is called weather which is never static and hence cannot be
generalized. One region of a city may have cloudy sky, another may have bright
sun light, and another may have heavy rain fall. The nature of weather at any
place can change any point of time.
Climate is defined as average condition of
weather pattern for an area. The average is obtained by using at least weather
pattern of past 35 years. The average is static and can represent the condition
of an area more accurately.
The main elements of climate are temperature;
pressure; winds; and rainfall. All these elements are highly variable and
constitute the weather of an area and climate in long run.
Types of Climate:
Usually It is referred for worlds climate and
used in broader prospects where the impact of global warming has increased or
increasing the earths temperature results in melting of glaciers. Green house
gases present in atmosphere trap the heat (due to anthropogenic activity,
radiative) and thus increasing the average temperature of earth. It is estimated
that by end of 21st Century the average temperature of earth will be increased
by 2 to 3 degree centigrade.
It is a weather pattern which is referred for a
certain geographical area for study or analysis. In broad term all types of
climate are finally contributing towards Global climate. It is differentiated
for sake of study and deeper analysis with reference to area. If we discuss
about Indian Monsoon that means we are typically discussing about a regional
It represents relatively a smaller geographical
area, which means the weather pattern has impact on a region. Their weather
pattern may or may not have larger impact on nearby area, however it effects
and influence the weather pattern of regional climate.
