" Weather forecasts may be more stable in other parts of the world, but the basic idea stands. Weather is dynamic, the product of interacting forces we are only beginning to understand. Witness the weather extremes caused by El Niño in 1997 and 1998. El Niño raised water temperatures in the Pacific and the effects were felt worldwide: crop failures, disease outbreaks, excess snow, or too little rain.

Early Theories of Evolution: Darwin and Natural Selection. Most educated people in Europe and the Americas during the 19th century had their first full exposure to the concept of evolution through the writings of Charles Darwin .

Early Theories of Evolution: Darwin and Natural Selection

Clearly, he did not invent the idea. That happened long before he was born. However, he carried out the necessary research to conclusively document that evolution has occurred and then made the idea acceptable for scientists and the general public. This was not easy since the idea of evolution had been strongly associated with radical scientific and political views coming out of post-revolutionary France. These ideas were widely considered to be a threat to the established social and political order. Darwin came to understand that any population consists of individuals that are all slightly different from one another. GCSE Bitesize: Evidence for Darwin's theory of evolution.

Weather Wiz Kids weather information for kids. Why do clouds form at different heights in the atmosphere?

Weather Wiz Kids weather information for kids

The characteristics of clouds are dictated by the elements available, including the amount of water vapor, the temperatures at that height, the wind, and the interplay of other air masses. How is fog formed? There are many different types of fog, but fog is mostly formed when southerly winds bring warm, moist air into a region, possibly ending a cold outbreak.

As the warm, moist air flows over much colder soil or snow, dense fog often forms. Warm, moist air is cooled from below as it flows over a colder surface. Cirrostratus clouds are thin, sheetlike high clouds that often cover the entire sky. Cirrocumulus clouds appear as small, rounded white puffs that appear in long rows.
