Climate Change By Megan Drake
Disrupts normal climate patterns which is caused by variations in interactions between the ocean and the atmosphere.
Effects the climate by transferring heat.
Habitats shift towards poles or higher altitude
Migrations start earlier in the spring
Increase in ocean temperature
Loss of ice makes hunting seals for polar bears much more difficult
How Climate Works
Greenhouse Gases absorb heat and release it back into the atmosphere.
Wind is caused by convection currents that result from rising warm air and falling cold air.
Ocean Currents are caused by a combination of unequal heating of water and unequal salinity
Global wind patterns move warm air away from the equator towards the poles.
El nino and La nina are effects of disruptions in climate change
Rising global surface temperatures
Changes in precipitation patterns
Rising sea level
Oceans corals are being bleached
