Q: Identify three criticisms of the greek system of climatic classification.
A: Global climate change has already had observable effects on the environment. [ [ Glaciers have shrunk, ice on rivers and lakes is breaking up earlier, plant and animal ranges have shifted and trees are flowering sooner. Effects that scientists had predicted in the past would result from global climate change are now occuring: loss of sea ice, accelerated sea level rise and longer, more intense
heat waves. ] ]

User: all about the grek classificatio of climatea



Weegy: all about the grek classificatio of climatea The earliest known climatic classifications were those of Classical Greek times. [ Such schemes generally divided Earth into latitudinal zones based on the significant parallels of 0°, 23.5°, and 66.5° of latitude (that is, the Equator, the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn, and the Arctic and Antarctic circles, respectively) and on the length of day. Modern climate classification has its origins in the mid-19th century, with the first published maps of temperature and precipitation over Earth’s surface, which permitted the development of methods of climate grouping that used both variables simultaneously. Many different schemes of classifying climate have been devised (more than 100), but all of them may be broadly differentiated as either empiric or genetic methods. This distinction is based on the nature of the data used for classification. Empirical methods make use of observed environmental data, such as temperature, humidity, and precipitation, or simple quantities derived from them (such as evaporation). In contrast, a genetic method classifies climate on the basis of its causal elements, the activity and characteristics of all factors (air masses, circulation systems, fronts, jet streams, solar radiation, topographic effects, and so forth) that give rise to the . ]
