Weathering of rocks, caves and other ground landscapes were reviewed and explored within this lab.This lab was helpful in assisting me in the understanding of the complete process of weathering on the earth and how it helps to shape the earth and its surface.It was interesting to learn how these things take place as well as the effect weathering has on many different materials within the earth.This lab helped me to evaluate how many of the landscapes are formed and why they are formed and what processes must happen for landscapes to change and evolve.This lab was challing to me as most of them are in interpreting the information given and relaying that into the questions asked.

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 before coming to Sentosa.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.Pleasant weather increases tourist satisfaction, whereas severe weather conditions such as rain and strong winds disrupt outdoor activities.Weather forecasting is a useful way to alter one’s behaviour or plan activities to suit prevailing weather con...

Climate can be contrasted to weather, which is the present condition of these elements and their variations over shorter periods.For example, people say “Death valley has a desert climate.” Climate is the weather that a place usually has year after year.When it rains or snows, people say, “The weather is wet.” When it is warm outside people say “the weather is hot.” Climate on the other hand, is the type of weather a place has over 30 or more years.Weather generally refers to day-to-day temperature and precipitation activity, whereas climate is the term for the average atmospheric conditions over longer periods of time.Weather does occur in the stratosphere and can affect weather lower down in the troposphere, but the exact mechanisms ar...

Air masses greatly affect the weather experienced in the British Isles and therefore, its climate.Therefore, the air mass is broadly described as ‘warm and wet’, bringing warm and muggy weather in the summer with temperatures of 25?C, and mild and damp weather in the winter with temperatures of 15?C.As discussed above, there are also many other factors which influence the air masses themselves, but also which directly influence the weather and climate of the British Isles.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.The climate is usually considered to be temperate maritime; however, the weather is very changeable from place to place and...

For the last century climate has dramatically changed.Climatologists’ estimate that there are two causes with several factors that have a response for the Earth’s climate.In Europe, 64% of all catastrophic events since 1980 are directly attributable to weather and climate extremes: floods, storms, and droughts/heatwaves.These causes have negative effect on the natural environment which leads to increasing of temperature, increasing in sea level, changing of precipitations, extremely weather, killing species of animals, birds, fish and plants.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...

This indirectly points to a bigger picture that for destinations attracting mostly day visitors, climate change may have smaller implications, since potential visitors are more likely to change plans or adapt to the on-site weather conditions (Aylen et al., 2005).On the other hand, in the case of an increase in temperature or rainfall events which are highly unpredictable, it seems that tourists would more likely accept and plan their activities to suit these random weather conditions.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.Secondly, with the climate of other regions and countries changing...

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.The energy balance of our planet is also affected by changes in the transparency of the atmosphere as a result of man’s production activities.2 Population growth intensifies the whole process through which anthropogenic interventions alter the c...
