The Answer is Blowing in the Wind

bigmama60Bigmama60 on 09/10/2007

TheAnswerisBlowingintheWind Photo Spring begins in the northern hemisphere when direct sunlight is perpendicular to the equator. This is called the vernal equinox.

In the northern hemisphere, our extreme weather should be gone with the wind, so to speak. Summer is almost gone; Autumn is around the corner. Then, here in the northern hemisphere, the earth will present another position to the sun.
Consequently, the southern hemisphere has the opportunity for the earth to rotate on its axis and experience some climate changes. It will have its vernal equinox. A thunderstorm is classified severe when winds reach or exceed 57.5 mph. All of these phenomena will be due to the way the wind blows.

Good quiz but the very last question has too many other possible answers: With 98% of its area covered with snow and ice, the Antarctic continent reflects most of the sun's light rather than absorbing it.
Solar Energy:
Because of the tilt of the earth's axis relative to its orbit around the sun, the sun does not shine at the South Pole for six months of the year. When the sun does shine, much less solar energy actually reaches the ground at the Pole because the sun's rays pass through a thicker layer of atmosphere than at the Equator. Also, due to the predominance of ice and snow covering Antarctica, most of the sun's rays that do reach the ground are reflected back into space.
Good quiz though. Very informative
