- With the rise of greenhouse gases, along with the all the other states, and countries, Virginia’s climate is changing. The climate is changing because the earth is warming due to greenhouse gases which are primarily: water vapor, carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, ozone, and more. People have had a huge impact on how much of these gases get out to the atmosphere. The amount of carbon dioxide in the air has gone up by 40 percent since the late 1700s especially since the industrial revolution.... [tags: Greenhouse gas, Carbon dioxide, Agriculture]

- For many years climate change has become a crucial issue around the globe. The environment has considerably deteriorated by the change of climate: seasons are shifting, the earth 's climate is changing, sea levels are rising and ice is melting. Global warming and the greenhouse effect is a topic that is becoming more and more concerning and a lot of research is done in order to examine what the issues are and how these affect the economy (Stern, 2006; CCRA, 2012) but also business industry and politics (Hanley & Owen, 2004)....

- Avoiding the weather is impossible. Weather forecasting is the one branch of science that nearly everyone uses on a daily basis. Whether one checks the forecast in the morning, afternoon, or night, knowing the atmospheric conditions enables us to prepare for the type of weather we will be facing. Predicting the climate has been practiced since the beginning of time with more or less accuracy. Historical beliefs show numerous examples of weather predicting methods based on observing surrounding elements.... [tags: Environment, Weather Forecasting]

- Interactions that take place on planet Earth are an ever-changing effect of the Earth’s role in the universe. Interactions stem from many factors, including the Earth’s position in relation to the sun, the axis of the Earth, and that of forces on Earth itself, such as gravity and position. One major interaction that affects everyone and everything on the planet is time. Throughout history, people have experimented with timekeeping in efforts to develop the best system. Through countless trials, the system we use today was developed.... [tags: position, sun, weather]

- Aquaculture is the fastest growing food-producing sector and contributes to nearly half the fish consumed globally (NICRA 2009). It supplies jobs and food and also helps maintain steady fish prices (FAO 2010). Chinese aquaculture is an industry leader and is responsible for a majority of the global aquaculture production. Freshwater aquaculture areas in China increased from 2.37 million hectares in 1979 to 5.72 million hectares in 2012. This parallels fish production growth, which increased from 0.81 million tons in 1979 to 24.71 million tons in 2012.... [tags: Weather, Climate, Climate change, Global warming]

- CP-KNN: Seasonal to Inter – annual Climate Prediction using Data Mining KNN technique. The impact of seasonal to inter – annual climate prediction on the society, business, agriculture and almost all aspect of human life enforce the scientist to give proper attention to the matter. The last few years show tremendous achievements in this field. All systems, techniques developed so far, use the Sea Surface Temperature (SST) as a main factor among other seasonal climatic attributes. The statistical and mathematical models are then used for further climate predictions.... [tags: Climate Change Weather Meteorology]
