Climate Crossword

Type
Crossword
Description

having little or no rain; too dry or barren to support vegetation. Arid
free from moisture or liquid; not wet or moist. Dry
of or characteristic of the Mediterranean Sea, the countries bordering it, or their inhabitants. Mediterranean
The climate in these areas vary by temperature, humidity, atmospheric pressure, precipitation and wind. There are four different climate zones, which include the cold zone, tempered zone, subtropical and tropical zones. The tropical zone is located near the equator. It is usually warm year-round with high humidity. Climate region
abandon (a person, cause, or organization) in a way considered disloyal or treacherous. Desert
the weather conditions prevailing in an area in general or over a long period. Climate
a large naturally occurring community of flora and fauna occupying a major habitat, forest or tundra Biome
usually of tall, densely growing, broad-leaved evergreen trees in an area of high annual rainfall. Also called tropical rain forest. Tropical rainforest
forests or temperate broad-leaf forests are dominated by trees that lose their leaves each year. They are found in areas with warm, moist summers and mild winters Temperate deciduous
A climate is a zone of climate characterised by hot, usually humid summers and mild to cool winters. It normally lies on the southeast side of all continents, generally between latitudes 25° and 40°. Humid subtropical
a vast, flat, treeless Arctic region of Europe, Asia, and North America in which the subsoil is permanently frozen. Tundra
dome-shaped sheets of ice found near the North and South Poles. They form because high-latitude polar regions receive less heat from the Sun than other areas on Earth. Polar Ice Cap
a grassy plain in tropical and subtropical regions, with few trees. Savanna
resembling the tropics, especially in being very hot and humid. Tropical
each of the four divisions of the year (spring, summer, autumn, and winter) marked by particular weather patterns and daylight hours, resulting from the earth's changing position with regard to the sun Seasons
the action or fact of elevating or being elevated. Elevation
the height of an object or point in relation to sea level or ground level. Altitude
the degree or intensity of heat present in a substance or object, Temperature
rain, snow, sleet, or hail that falls to the ground. Precipitation
the heat required to raise the temperature of the unit mass of a given substance by a given amount Specific heat
marked by a relatively high level of water vapor in the atmosphere Humid
an area of high or mountainous land. Highland
a gradual increase in the overall temperature of the earth's atmosphere generally attributed to the greenhouse effect caused by increased levels of carbon dioxide, chlorofluorocarbons, and other pollutants. Global warming
the Earth's temperate zones between the tropics and the Arctic and Antarctic polar regions. Mid-latitude

El Nino & La Nina Crossword

Type
Crossword
Description

an irregularly occurring and complex series of climatic changes affecting the equatorial Pacific region and beyond every few years, characterized by the appearance of unusually warm, nutrient-poor water off northern Peru and Ecuador, typically in late December. El Nino
a cooling of the water in the equatorial Pacific that occurs at irregular intervals and is associated with widespread changes in weather patterns complementary to those of El Niño, but less extensive and damaging in their effects. La Nina
is the water temperature close to the ocean's surface. The exact meaning of surface varies according to the measurement method used, but it is between 1 millimetre (0.04 in) and 20 metres (70 ft) below the sea surface. Sea Surface Tempature
a wind blowing steadily toward the equator from the northeast in the northern hemisphere or the southeast in the southern hemisphere, especially at sea. Two belts of trade winds encircle the earth, blowing from the tropical high-pressure belts to the low-pressure zone at the equator. Trade Winds
the action or process of precipitating a substance from a solution. rain, snow, sleet, or hail that falls to the ground. Precipitation
a prolonged period of abnormally low rainfall; a shortage of water resulting from this. Drought
the weather conditions prevailing in an area in general or over a long period. Climate
the state of the atmosphere at a place and time as regards heat, dryness, sunshine, wind, rain, etc. Weather
El Niño (La Niña) is a phenomenon in the equatorial Pacific Ocean characterized by a five consecutive 3-month running mean of sea surface temperature (SST) anomalies in the Niño 3.4 region that is above (below) the threshold of +0.5°C (-0.5°C). Equatorial pacific
the largest of the Earth's oceanic divisions. It extends from the Arctic Ocean in the north to the Southern Ocean in the south and is bounded by Asia and Australia in the west and the Americas in the east. Pacific ocean
cover or submerge (a place or area) with water Flooding
a mass of mud and other earthy material that is falling or has fallen down a hillside or other slope. Mudslides
process whereby the degree of hotness of a body (or medium) changes. Tempature Change
a continuous, directed movement of seawater generated by forces acting upon this mean flow, such as breaking waves, wind, the Coriolis effect, cabbeling, temperature and salinity differences, while tides are caused by the gravitational pull of the Sun and Moon.  Ocean Currents
a gradual increase in the overall temperature of the earth's atmosphere generally attributed to the greenhouse effect caused by increased levels of carbon dioxide, chlorofluorocarbons, and other pollutants.  Global Warming
describe both warm (El Niño) and cool (La Niña) ocean-atmosphere events in the tropical Pacific as well as the Southern Oscillation the atmospheric component of these phenomena. ENSO
a rising of seawater, magma, or other liquid. Upwelling
abnormal weather pattern that is caused by the warming of the Pacific Ocean near the equator, off the coast of South America. This occurs when the normal trade winds weaken (or even reverse), which lets the warm water that is usually found in the western Pacific flow instead towards the east. Causes of El Nino
large climate disturbances which are rooted in the tropical Pacific Ocean, and occur every 3 to 7 years. They have a strong impact on the continents around the tropical Pacific, and some climatic influence on half of the planet. Effects of El Nino
the process of a liquid changing into a gas. Evaporation
a half of the earth, usually as divided into northern and southern halves by the equator, or into western and eastern halves by an imaginary line passing through the poles. a half of the celestial sphere. Hemisphere
something that deviates from what is standard, normal, or expected Anomoly
a thing predicted; a forecast. Prediction
