Although this study fully acknowledges the importance of climate to tourism, with weather being an important factor, survey results show the possibility that destinations may also be chosen in spite of the likely bad weather.Thus, having already considered Singapore’s hot and humid climate before the trip, factoring in possible weather conditions that might be experienced, attractions and activities that can be found in Singapore is determined to be more important at the expense of weather.However, it is surprising that although 59% of respondents engaged in a pre-planned weather dependent activity of sun tanning and swimming as well as 10% for picnicking, only a small percentage of 13% admitted to have checked the weather forecast befor...

Weather does occur in the stratosphere and can affect weather lower down in the troposphere, but the exact mechanisms are pearly understood.People expect the weather to change, but have a harder time agreeing exactly how climate is changing.For example, people say “Death valley has a desert climate.” Climate is the weather that a place usually has year after year.When used with our qualifications, “weather” is understood to be the weather of earth.Climate can be contrasted to weather, which is the present condition of these elements and their variations over shorter periods.

Overall, it seems that the air masses do have a very large effect on the weather brought to the UK, and therefore its climate too.It is not only the weather that the air masses bring that affects the climate of the UK, but also, the complex interactions between the air masses.Air masses greatly affect the weather experienced in the British Isles and therefore, its climate.The climate is usually considered to be temperate maritime; however, the weather is very changeable from place to place and from time to time.It is important to remember that the air masses bring different weather depending on the season, so the seasons are actually affecting the air masses themselves and the extent to which they affect UK weather and climate.

( IPCC Third Assessment Report - Climate Change 2001; editor:A.P.Baede) Climate change is a variation of average weather.Climate is defined as the average weather, which means variety of weather conditions as rain, snow, hail, sun, and wind over period of time about 30 years that can be measured in any particular place.In Europe, 64% of all catastrophic events since 1980 are directly attributable to weather and climate extremes: floods, storms, and droughts/heatwaves.Consequences of climate change may manifest itself as rapid and through the long period of time.The average number of annual disastrous weather and climate-related events in Europe doubled .

Despite acknowledging that climate is an important resource for tourism in Singapore, this study made an interesting finding that weather did not prove to be the ultimate choice affecting tourist’s decision to Sentosa.Singapore must prove herself as a worthy destination with many alternative activities that is available for visitors facing extreme hot weather or sudden rainfall due to the changing climate.With attractions being the most important factor affecting tourists’ choice to Sentosa, there is high possibility that Sentosa may be chosen in spite of the likely bad weather.Secondly, with the climate of other regions and countries changing for the better, the need for a winter escape to warm climate countries diminishes.This indirect...

In 1883, as more discoveries on new laws on physics, instruments and inventions were made about the weather and climate, Hann was the first one to document these in a classic book entitled the Handbook of Climatology.In the distant past, when people experienced changes in the weather, such as scarcity in rainfall or an onslaught of torrential rains, unexpected increase or decrease in temperature, or other abnormal changes in weather condition for long periods of time, they were predisposed to consign these events to fate and have resolved to accept blindly what impacts these changes in their physical environment may bring.In a literature found in the World Meteorological Organization website, and made by authors Andre, Garcia, de Melo a ...

Despite all of the information and evidence that scientists have uncovered related to changes in climate, there continues to be uncertainty around the causes of climate change and its potential impacts.Therefore, when dealing with climate change, scientists need to make a number of assumptions with an ever increasing number of models that focus on different parts of the climate system; all of which makes pinpointing exactly what to expect in terms of future climate change that much more difficult.Attention has begun to shift from local, short-term seasonal patterns of temperature, rainfall, other elements of the weather, toward longer-term trends that can affect the entire Earth, se long-term (typically 30-year) weather trends are called...

Weather vs. climate The difference between weather and climate is important to understand when thinking about the Polar jet stream, because it does drive weather systems.Climate change is an important issue the public is aware of, but do not see how their individual responses can have an impact on such a large global issue.Since the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) first report in 1990, the international community has known “emissions resulting from human activities are substantially increasing the atmospheric concentrations of the greenhouse gases carbon dioxide, methane, chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) and nitrous oxide.” (IPCC, 1990).This paper will examine how global warming may impact the Polar Jet Stream seen in fig.1,...
