Climate analog

  1. 1. Climatic Factors, classification, and analog
  2. 2. Orbits of Earth, Sun, and Moon http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lkWyM-M8o0c
  3. 4. Gaseous combination of earth atmosphere
  4. 5. Changes from Volcanism, industry, ag. and forestry
  5. 6. Meteors, oceanic currents, and high level atmospheric jet streams
  6. 7. Fluctuations in the earth’s magnetic field, solar flares
  7. 9. Tropics and Sub tropics <ul><li>No month below 18 °C (64 °F) mean temperature </li></ul><ul><li>coolest months above 0°C (32°F) but below 18 °C (64 °F) (frost free areas) </li></ul><ul><li>cold below above 0°C (32°F) but mean avg. summer over 10°C (50°F) degree summers </li></ul><ul><li>warmest months below 10°C (50°F) </li></ul>Temperate and Polar
  8. 10. Arid and Desert <ul><li>Evaporation over Precipitation </li></ul><ul><li>25 cm (10 in)- 50 Cm (19.5 in) </li></ul><ul><li>25 cm (10 in) or less mean </li></ul>
  9. 11. Why examine Climate? <ul><li>need to know what types of plants and how we structure them </li></ul><ul><li>Breeds and selection of animals </li></ul><ul><li>Cultivated ecology techniques (swales frequency and dimensions, fertility maintenance, and </li></ul><ul><li>building materials-local materials with also thermal mass or insulation </li></ul><ul><li>we don’t want to bring temperate methods into drylands and tropics </li></ul>
  10. 12. Design <ul><li>Allow for extremes in design </li></ul><ul><li>Find out totals and distribution and rainfall </li></ul><ul><li>Light availability- heavy fog areas for flowereing plants </li></ul><ul><li>Continental Climates- more temp extremes </li></ul><ul><li>Maritime Climates- buffer severe heat or cold </li></ul><ul><li>Attitude effects- every 100 m of altitude is equivalent to 1 degree of latitude, so temps in subs </li></ul><ul><li>Note tree flagging </li></ul><ul><li>Put wind Socks in </li></ul><ul><li>Accurate Temp- several max/min – help with microclimate </li></ul>
