  • The Evolution Of An Ice Age

    2367 words, 10 pages

    Throughout the past 40 million years our Earth has been in a continuous ice age. This period is considered an ice age because of the ongoing presence of an ice sheet that currently covers Antarctica. An ice age can be thought of as a period of time where the Earth’s climate is constantly reducing in temperature, which causes the formation of ice sheets and glaciers. This cooling of the Earth doesn’t happen all at once, it goes through cycles of warm and cold weather. The colder cycles are referred to as glacial periods and the warmer cycles are referred to as interglac

    The Improvement Of Estimates Of Flood Risk In The Uk Using Historical Data

    2262 words, 10 pages

    Introduction Approximately one in every ten people lives in an area at risk from flooding in the UK. This represents a significant problem in the UK to the insurance companies insuring the properties and to the appropriate governmental bodies whose authority it is to protect these areas from flooding. Many of the problems have been accentuated by inappropriate siting of buildings and housing developments since the early 1960’s as space in large conurbations has become sparse. These problems have become more recognised in the UK since the early 1990’s as many large conurbations have suffered f

    Tornadoes are local storms of high-speed, rotating winds (Brown & Brown 219). They are strong windstorms that occur mostly in the central and southern U.S. during the spring and early summer. Tornadoes are formed when warmer, lighter air from the south gets trapped below heavier, colder air from the north. When this happens, warm air rushes upward and begins to spin. Winds may reach two hundred to five hundred miles per hour (Long 15). Tornadoes are small, intense storms. Six hundred to seven hundred are reported each year in the U.S. In some regions, tornadoes are called "twisters" or "cyclo
