First, there is no evidence that the Gulf Stream will cut off. The Gulf Stream is being measured, but it’s a fairly new science. There could be some truth in the suggestion that the salinity of the sea being undermined by the melting of the ice caps. That would interfere the global... Читать далее

What exactly will climate change mean for Britain?

Meteorologist, founder of British Weather Services, former Fleet Air Arm meteoro...  · 8 декабря 2016
It’s already meaning something: take the floods in Cumbria last year. Temperature records are being broken, both minimum and maximum, and it’ll increase in both directions. Maximum temperatures are caused by more energy being released into the atmosphere, which will deliver potentially... Читать далее

Generally speaking, the sky is black, because when you’re looking at the sky, you’re looking at outer space, as the earth’s atmosphere is invisible around us. But the sky is blue because of the visible light from the sun. The sun’s light is made up of the whole prism – in other words... Читать далее

Can you predict the weather just by looking at clouds?

спрашивает
Martin Aston
Meteorologist, founder of British Weather Services, former Fleet Air Arm meteoro...  · 9 декабря 2016
Clouds give very good clues of the immediate status of the atmosphere, and sometimes what’s about to arrive – or not, depending on if it’s a stable condition or if it’s likely to change. > "If you marry up the clouds, the wind and the humidity, you can be your own weather forecaster."

Is there any truth in the idea that certain animals can accurately predict the weather?

спрашивает
Martin Aston
Meteorologist, founder of British Weather Services, former Fleet Air Arm meteoro...  · 14 декабря 2016
The idea that a cow can predict the weather, and lies down when it’s going to rain, is rubbish, just an old wives’ tale. Sheep crowd together because it’s cold, not because it’s going to rain tomorrow. Rain often arrives when it starts to get warmer, not colder. Rather than prediction... Читать далее

Is the Earth's climate really getting worse?

спрашивает
Martin Aston
Meteorologist, founder of British Weather Services, former Fleet Air Arm meteoro...  · 16 декабря 2016
The earth’s climate is getting worse for some people, and better for others. But even when you can say the climate is getting better – since warmer temperatures means it’s less freezing – the benefits are arguable, because that warmer weather brings more extremes. The more energy you... Читать далее

Will climate change affect people in the UK?

Yes. And it already has. The UK’s average temperature is 1 degree Celsius higher than it was 100 years ago, and 0.5C higher than it was in the 1970s. It’s worth remembering that natural fluctuations will cause unusually cold years and seasons so temperatures may not rise every single... Читать далее

What do most people get wrong about meteorology?

Пользователь TheQuestion  · 20 декабря 2016
What people mostly get wrong about meteorology is blaming the forecaster for getting the forecast wrong. Sometimes, depending on what terms you’re using, the forecaster can explain the right thing. But depending on the viewer or listener’s regard for how important weather is to them, or... Читать далее
