The following Topics and Sub-Topics are covered in this chapter and are available on MSVgo:

Introduction

Weather, Climate and Adaptations of Animals of Climate is an important geography topic that covers the atmosphere of any particular area. You must have heard on the news that today’s weather would be stormy or rainy. Do you know what those reporters are talking about? Also, what are the factors that help in determining the type of weather or climate? We’ll discuss these terms in detail.

Weather is the short-term condition of any place, while climate is the aggregate average of weather for a long time. Weathers can be calculated for minutes to months, while climates are calculated for the long term that can be around 15-20 years.

The different elements of weather for any place are given below. The weather changes are also by the rotation of the earth on its axis as well the revolution of the earth around the sun. The earth follows an elliptical shape of revolution. Hence, the earth is sometimes farther away from the sun, and sometimes it is nearer to the sun. This also causes turbulence in the weather and tides on the earth.

Rainfall: Rainfall is the simple weather element that predicts rainfall that any place would be receiving. Weather forecasters and the Meteorological Department predict the rainfall annually so that farmers can line up their crops in accordance. It also helps in mitigating the uncertainties that may arise due to less rainfall.

Temperature: Temperature is an important weather element that dictates any place’s current temperature along with future predictions. We know that the temperature is low in winters, and in summers, the temperature remains high.

Humidity: Humidity is the amount of water vapour present in the atmosphere. It is also an important weather element.

Snowfall: Snowfall is often seen in hilly areas due to the altitude. It is a weather element that brings frozen water into the atmosphere.

Storms and Winds: These are important weather conditions related to the wind flow of any given area.

The Meteorological Department is the government body responsible for predicting the weather of any given place. In news and TVs, they come up with weather reports that tell us the weather prediction for the next day. Weather forecasts are important for many people, such as farmers and people in business, as they can align their work and other issues according to the predicted weather. Suppose there is a prediction of normal rainfall, then farmers would produce crops across the country. Weather forecasts also serve as the loss prevention measure. In case of bad weather, the farmers can choose alternative crops that can sustain that predicted weather.

Climate plays a vital role in the survival or extinction of organisms. For example, a polar bear is suited to stay in Polar Regions that are filled with snow. If we put them in a desert area, their bodies may not survive that much heat and ultimately die. Similarly, all organisms’ bodies are suited to live in a particular type of area. Different parts of the earth have certain kinds of climates. They are polar areas that are in the south and the North Pole filled with snow and ice. Then we have tropical areas that include the tropical rainforests that become a large habitat for different kinds of organisms. We can find different animals like the red-eyed frog, monkeys, toucans, lions, tigers, lion-tailed macaque and elephants in the tropical rainforest region.

Weather, Climate and Adaptations of Animals of Climate corresponds to the atmospheric condition of any particular area. It becomes necessary to know the future weather predictions as our agriculture is based on that. Many businesses would be affected due to ill-weather forecasts. Weather and climatic conditions are determined by some factors that also govern the atmosphere of the place. For example, if we have a landmass nearer to the sea, we can have a moderate climate there. It happens because of the land breeze and sea breeze phenomenon that controls the surrounding places’ wind and temperature. Our earth comprises different climatic zones such as polar zone, tropical zone, temperate zone and more. These zones have different kinds of climatic conditions and also contain organisms that have adapted to their habitat.

What is the weather, climate and adaptations of animals of climate?
Weather is the short-term condition of the atmosphere around us. It can range from minutes to a few months. Simultaneously, the climate is a broad term that usually takes a long-term description of that place’s atmosphere. Adaptations are the ability of an organism to adapt to the changes.

What changes frequently weather or climate?
Climate is the average of the weather conditions for a long period of time. Hence weather is a short-term condition that changes frequently.

What is Climate Weather in Class 7?
Climate weather is an important geography chapter that comes under the class 7th social science syllabus. It deals with the basic definition of weather and climate and the variations and patterns observed throughout India.

Is it climate or weather that an animal adapts to?
Animals adapt to climate as the weather is a short-term condition that can be prevented using various methods. But climate is a long-term condition upon which an animal must adapt to survive.

What factors affect the type of annual climate area experiences?
Factors that affect the climates are a distance from the sea, ocean currents, prevailing winds, distance from the equator and more.

On the MSVgo app, you can check the different kinds of forests flourishing on the earth due to the different climatic conditions with amazing learning videos.
