King Previous Extreme Weather

Abstract:
The dark rocks underneath the water heats up the atmosphere more, because the darkness of the rocks attracts the sun.
Intro:
Climate is the average temp. for that time of year. There are different climates for different placese because of the eqador . the equador is reallyt hot and the poler ice caps are really cold. GCC is when the globe ius getting hotter, and it is affecting all of u7s on tyhge earth, and killing spcieces. (insert picture on paint of sun heating earth). The green house effect is when the sun gives off radiation and it comes down into earth. It either gets absorbed into something, or bouced off of an object. It bounces off of something and goes back up into the atmosphere. But because of the CO2 molicules in to air, it bounces back off of the CO2 and comes backj down onto earth. There is a 50 50 chance that it gets bounced back up and do the same thing, or get absorbed into an object on the earth. With more and more CO2 in the atmosphere, the earth is getting warmer and warmer, and there is nothing now that we can do about it. And even if we tried doing something, it wouldn’t have a result intill 100 years from now. But with out the green house effect, there would just things absorbing the suns radiation or it bouncuing back up, and never coming back. So, with out it, we would dget no heat into the earth and freeze eventuatlly. Our question for our experiment was that we were wondering which material in the salt water would heat up the atmosphere quicker. I said that the asphault would, because it is balck, and dark colrs attract the sun. (in this case, the light bulb.)
Materials:
white rocks
2) salt
3) water
4) asphault
5) measuring cup
6) four two liter bottles
7) a pair os sissors
Methods:
First, you have to get the bottles, and draw a small line where youh watnt to cut it, then, youh have to take some sissors, and cut the line where youh watnt it (it is better if it is about 3 inches fromthebottom. ) the, put all of the matrerials that need to go inside, in side the bottle. (rocks, and water). Then, take a piece of tape and tape the thermometer up inside the bottle, to take how warm or cold the atmosphere is in the bottle. Then, tape up the slit when youh have all of the marterials in side of the bottle. Then turn on the light, and take the temp. every two – three minutes.
Results:
The asphault heated up the most and and even when every other experimente was cooler the asphault was way up in the 90*fs. The white wrocks was among the experiment that had a normal temp. the whole time such as 88-91*f. it lasted thi way for a while then it went up a few *’s at the end. The control was among the white rocks, with an avcerage t4emp of 88-91*f. the whole time. It never had any spiks or sudden drops.
Discussi Human error was the most part of why our results turned out the way that they did. On the asphault ecperiment, one of our scientists opened the bottle cap to fix the materials on the insisde, This, releasing the warm air into the atmosphere. Also at the end dof the experiment, the thermometer in asphualt was turned facing the light bulb ,m thux, causeing the temp in the bottle to go up because of the heat of the light , and it wnt up to at least 100*f

An outsiders is a person who no one wants to be around, talk to, or hang out with. The book “The Outsiders” by S.E. Hinton explains what an outsider is. It takes place among the old west coast of America. Darry, Dally, Cherry, Johnny, Two bit, ponyboy, sodapop, bob, and steve are all of the main characters. Pony boy is an outsiders because he is a greaer, he is more sensitive and intelligent than the other greasers, and he is a hero.

Ponyboy is an outsider because he is a hero. “’Ill get them, don’t worry!’ I started at a dead run for the church …” (Hinton, 91) this quote shows that pony boy is an outsider because he is a hero. Many greasers are not heroes, just pony boy Johnny and Dally. They saved many children from the burning church and help them al get out safely.

All of the quotes and explanations above show that Ponyboy is not an average greaser; he is an outsider of the greasers. He is more intelligent than the other greasers, and he is a hero to all of the children that he saved. Many people wouldn’t want to be around the greasers, but pony boy is not your average greaser.

There has been much extreme weather in the past.

RAIN FALL
The smallest rain fall was for 2 years in Southern Africa. There was no rain which caused a drought, and left people without water, and no food that would grow. With no water, no one could take a drink, shower, or even cook a meal. (You will need water to put out a fire from dinner, lunch etc. Also, to mix with different things to make a meal.)

LARGEST RAIN FALL
In one minute; 1.23 inches
In 60 minutes; 12 inches
In 12 hours; 35.7 inches
In 24 hours; 71.8 inches
In 48 hours; 97.1 inches
In 72 hours; 154.7 inches
In 96 hours; 196.7 inches
In 12 months; 1042 inches
(all in Phoenix AZ)

SNOW, HAIL
The largest/heaviest hail that ever fell was weighed and it was a little over 2.27 lbs!
The largest snow fall that ever fell was over 1,140 inches in Washington's Mt. Baker Ski Area from 7/1/1998 to 6/30/99. (wikianswers.com/snow_and_ice)

TORNADOS
The Great Tri-State Tornado of Wednesday, March 18, 1925, crossed from south eastern Missouri, through southern Illinois, then into southwestern Indiana, and was the deadliest tornado in U.S. history. With 695 confirmed fatalities, the tornado killed more than twice as many as the second deadliest, the 1840 Great Natchez Tornado. The continuous ≥219 mile (≥352 km) track left by the tornado was the longest ever recorded in the world. Historians would recognize it as an example of the maximum issued rating of an F5 on the Fujita scale. (wikianswers.com/tornadoes)

HURRICANES
Hurricane Katrina of the 2005 hurricane season was the costliest hurricane, as well as one of the five deadliest, in the history of the United States. Among recorded Atlantic hurricanes, it was the sixth strongest overall. Hurricane Katrina formed as Tropical Depression Twelve over the southeastern Bahamas on August 23, 2005 as the result of an interaction of a tropical wave and the remains of Tropical Depression Ten. The system was upgraded to tropical storm status on the morning of August 24 and at this point, the storm was given the name Katrina. The tropical storm continued to move towards Florida, and became a hurricane only two hours before it made landfall between Hallandale Beach and Aventura, Florida on the morning of August 25. The storm weakened over land, but it regained hurricane status about one hour after entering the Gulf of Mexico. (wikipedia.com)

WINDS
The fastest wind speed ever recorded is 318 mph in one of the May 3, 1999 tornadoes to hit Oklahoma.

TEMPURATURES
The highest temperature that was ever recorded was in Arizona, and it was, 136°F
The lowest temperature that was ever recorded was in northern Alaska, –79.8°F
