4- How should Mary Watts proceed to assess, and decide upon, the use of weather protection for PNW?Since the colder the season, the greater the electrical usage and the recent weather advisory called for another unseasonably warm winter, Mary was considering on of the Enron “weather derivatives”.Mary should consider the impact the weather has on revenues, profits, and costs.A weather derivative or weather option is a financial instrument that has a payoff derived from variables such as temperature, snowfall, humidity and rain-fall.The time period is important as well because of the correlation between the weather in one month with the weather in the month before and after.

Weather forecasting for weather derivatives 100: 6-16 .Hence, in Malaysia, to structure a weather derivative, it is easier as compared to other four season countries because the weather factors that taken into account are lesser.The weather index is first calculated and then the price of the insurance contract is calculated based on the weather index.Besides pricing technique, the model that used to describe the dynamic or the movement of the weather factors like amount of rainfall or daily average temperature in the research of weather derivatives is one of the problems faced by researchers as well.The aim of their research is to see how the Black-Scholes model can be applied in weather type derivative and to analyze whether it is a su...

Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia .My sister who lives in the Northwest tells stories like how her children went out in what seemed like beautiful fall weather ideal for trick-or-treating and ended up coming back to the house shivering, with an orange pumpkin filled with candy and snow.Whether it be by giving examples on how weather forecasting is not a science, attributing human characteristics to the weather in general, giving examples of abnormal weather conditions, patterns or phenomenon, or explaining how atmospheric conditions can rapidly produce changes in the weather pattern, one can easily write about how “the weather has a mind of its own.” .Or one can tell stories of weather forecasts that went really wrong.For example, on...

Weathered rocks can cause particular difficulties especially in site investigations.The most logical approach to the problem of classifying degree of weathering is to describe the rock material without attempting to provide a statement on how weathered it may be, apart from commenting on the presence of discolouration, decomposition, voids and softening.The Report of Working Party (1995) provides a scheme for describing the state of weathering for uniform rock materials which are moderately strong or stronger in the fresh state which shows a clear gradation in engineering properties during weathering.Once sufficient descriptive data on the rock material and the rock mass has been acquired to establish the mechanisms and stages of weather...

We can look at the sky to see what weather will be next, but we can't see what Jesus is doing for us and what he will do.In Matthew 16:2-3, He replied, "When evening comes, you say, `It will be fair weather, for the sky is red,' and in the morning, "Today it will be stormy, for the sky is red and overcast.'Jesus was talking about more than weather patterns.During good weather most people just say, "this is good weather," and leave it at that.I think bad weather is talked about more than good 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 before coming to Sentosa.Therefore, although climate and weather is one of the many factors that may influence tourist decisions, good weather may not be the primary reason for selecting destinations.Along the same line of argument, Dewar (2005) contends that humans may not be able to alter the day-to-day weather but they do alter their behaviours to either avoid or take advantage of these weather conditions.In fact, although weather ranks second after attraction/activities, given only a choice,...

The interference of other weather factors such as clouds, wind, or barometric pressure could have affected the mood of the participants.According to the French philosopher Blaise Pascal, who strongly denied any correlation between weather and mood, ” the weather and my mood have little connection.A new “weather therapy” can be useful in treating people with psychiatric disorder such as depression and post-traumatic diseases.As a result of a special interest in this correlation between weather and mood, much research has been performed to demonstrate that weather has influence over people’s emotion and behavior.The purpose of this research is to enrich previous studies on the effect of different weather variables on mood and cognition.

The phenomenon El Nino is known for its effects not only in the alteration of weather but also in ruining the lives of many people.In El Nino, weather is disrupted because there is a decline in the amount of exchange of winds, therefore reducing the amount of cool water and is replaced by the warm waters (Reynolds et al.It may be a natural weather condition that mostly is experienced by the tropical pacific regions, but the effects and its unpredictability makes it more of a threat.Most common weather alteration caused by El Nino is the increase in rainfall; more rainfall means flood (“NOAA/PMEL/TAO: The El Nino story”).This phenomenon is known not only to alter weather conditions in affected areas but also affect the lives of people.
