Let's use the sea ice albedo feedback loop as an example. A: Sea Ice, B: Earth's Albedo, C: Temperature. A to B If Sea Ice growing makes the Albedo greater then arrow from A to B would be rated as a PLUS. B to C If Albedo increase, we know that would actual decrease temp so the arrow from B to C would be rated a MINUS, and then finally C to A. if surface temp increase, will Sea Ice increase? NO, so the arrow from C to A would be rated a MINUS. The net of the 3 would probably be rated as an overall PLUS. I believe that this would be the proper approach. Hope that helps.

Why is it so hard to find information in regards to El Nino events outside of the So. Pacific? It's not like the Trade Winds are only reversing in the Pacific. Anyone have any thoughts or good links, please reply. Thanks

This website seems to have detailed information on the effects of el nino: http://www.knmi.nl/research/global_clim ... o/effects/. El nino is the warming of the eastern Pacific ocean, caused by the weakening of trade winds, but this has an effect on the climate globally.

May I be the first to start the new meteorology rule sheet contradiction by quoting the rule sheet: "Topics may include, but ARE limited to:" Chalker, is this a typo, or saying that tests shouldn't include anything not on the rule sheet, such as previous ice ages and things under the topic of everyday weather that don't go with climate?

I'm pretty sure that yes, tests shouldn't include anything not the rule sheet.

Can someone please explain the public land survey system, it is confusing me so much :?
and also the daisy world model
To answer this question, the daisy world model is a simple hypothetical of earth in which Earth consists of just three types of surfaces: black or white daisies, and barren land. The black daisies have a low albedo, thus absorbing more energy, and the white daisies have a high albedo and reflect more energy. Barren lands have an albedo in the middle. This means that black daisies will warm the surrounding areas with its extra energy, and white daisies cool the surrounding areas as more energy is reflected. As a result, the hypothetical states that the black daisies grow in cooler climates and the white daisies grow in warmer climates, meaning that the daisies will always pull the temperature of the surrounding atmosphere back towards the mean temperature.

I believe it is a typo and that it means to say that "Topics may include, but are NOT limited to:........" Going to Westlake Invite (Ohio) on Saturday. Let you know how it goes.
