There are many new figures and selected regional case studies including new material on central Asia, Tibet, Greenland, Antarctica, the Andes, New Zealand, the Alps and equatorial East Africa.
Let's talk about weather and climate. Heat exits the Earth system as the Earth's surface, warmed by solar energy, radiates heat away. Weather is the mix of events that happen each day in our atmosphere including temperature, rainfall and humidity. Weather is not the same everywhere. However, certain gases in our atmosphere, called greenhouse gases, allow the lower atmosphere to absorb the heat radiated from the Earth's surface, trapping heat within the Earth system.
Weather is the condition of the atmosphere at a particular place over a short period of time, whereas climate refers to the weather pattern, using statistical data, of a place over a long enough period to yield meaningful averages. Climatology studies climatic change, and is an atmospheric science.
Climate has a very important impact on plants, animals and humans and is different in different parts of the world. Климат - погода в определенном месте в течение длительного периода времени. Russia is the biggest country in the world. It is located in the vast territory from the Pacific coast to the heart of Europe, and its climate in the north, south, east and west are different. In the West, for example, the climate is generally mild and humid. Kлимат оказывает очень большое влияние на растения, животных и людей и отличается в разных частях мира.
