No matter where you live in the world, weather is something that you are exposed to every single day. Even though weather occurs all around the world, the region you live in can have a different natural phenomenon than another geographical locations. For example, if you live in the Midwest of the United States, it isn't very likely that you'll get hurricanes but you may be very familiar with tornados.
Why is it sunny most of the year in some places and rainy in other places? What causes tsunamis and earthquakes? Learning more about what causes these forces of nature can help us to be better prepared when they happen. There is a lot of work around the world focused on early detection systems for storms, tsunamis and earthquakes. Learn how these are being developed, about educations that can teach you the skills you need to help and jobs that will put those skills to work!
Even though weather is different all around the world, our weather systems are all very interconnected.
