24 Facts About Meteorological


Meteorological phenomena are observable weather events that are explained by the science of meteorology.

FactSnippet No. 2,232,075

Meteorological phenomena are described and quantified by the variables of Earth's atmosphere: temperature, air pressure, water vapour, mass flow, and the variations and interactions of these variables, and how they change over time.

FactSnippet No. 2,232,076

Meteorological observed that air temperature decreased with increasing height and that clouds contain moisture.

FactSnippet No. 2,232,077

Meteorological noted that heat caused objects to rise, and therefore the heat on a summer day would drive clouds to an altitude where the moisture would freeze.

FactSnippet No. 2,232,078

Meteorological believed that fire and water opposed each other in the atmosphere, and when fire gained the upper hand, the result was summer, and when water did, it was winter.

Meteorological constructed a map of the world divided into climactic zones by their illumination, in which the length of the Summer solstice increased by half an hour per zone between the equator and the Arctic.

FactSnippet No. 2,232,084

Meteorological didn't make any personal contributions, and the value of his work is in preserving earlier speculation, much like Seneca's work.

FactSnippet No. 2,232,085

Meteorological describes the meteorological character of the sky, the planets and constellations, the sun and moon, the lunar phases indicating seasons and rain, the anwa, and atmospheric phenomena such as winds, thunder, lightning, snow, floods, valleys, rivers, lakes.

FactSnippet No. 2,232,086

Meteorological thought dense air produced propulsion in the form of wind.

FactSnippet No. 2,232,087

Meteorological explained thunder by saying that it was due to ice colliding in clouds, and in Summer it melted.

Meteorological stated that a rainbow summit can not appear higher than 42 degrees above the horizon.

FactSnippet No. 2,232,090

Meteorological discounted fire because it needed material to spread and produced nothing.

FactSnippet No. 2,232,091

Meteorological discussed terrestrial bodies and vapors which arise from them, proceeding to explain the formation of clouds from drops of water, and winds, clouds then dissolving into rain, hail and snow.

FactSnippet No. 2,232,092

Meteorological explained the rain as caused by clouds becoming too large for the air to hold, and that clouds became snow if the air was not warm enough to melt them, or hail if they met colder wind.
