Basics of Climate Science

Climate Variation

Let us take the example of the shoreline of a sea. The shoreline is highly susceptible to change, and therefore, has no definite shape. With every incoming wave, some sediments get deposited on the shore, and with every receding wave, certain amount of sand gets removed from the shore. Accordingly, the shoreline gets redrawn a bit with such frequent wave movements.

This is akin to our climate - a dynamic system that keeps evolving. Every moment as substances get added or get used up in this system, the basic nature of climate also changes.

In this section, we will learn about the variation in climate.

The following concepts will be covered.

Let us proceed to understand the first concept.
