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.
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.
Not the place for official comments or clarifications as usual. That said, last year the wording was "Questions will be from the following Severe Storm Weather topics:", so I believe the intention IS to limit questions to the listed topics.

I think Milankovitch was joking just because sponsors rarely ever follow the rules haha :lol:

Slytherin, thanks for your support. First event this past weekend. Hadn't really covered Gyres and eddies during my studies but there were several questions about them. Another on "loop current" and way more on Thornthwaite then just being the antithesis to Koppen and based on enviroevaporations. Hope other can share so we can all expand our research and studies. Anyone else at Westlake, Ohio event? Top 10, need to do better.

As far as I know, the gyres and eddies are under the thermohaline circulation aspect, I can't remember what letter that is, and am too lazy to find it. I also came to decide to add a map of the US thornthwaite, a description of each of the Thornthwaite climates, and a formula to calculate percipitation stuffs to the index. For checking purposes, would that have been enough to answer most of the Thornthwaite questions at Westlake?
On a side note, are there any ice cores that I should focus on, or even look at at all? All I know right now are Vostok and EPICA.

I've just focused on knowing the ice core samples on climate dating. Probably need to expand that.

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.
Does anyone have a similar link for La Nina? "Opposite of el nino" is just not good enough for me.

It's not good for anyone.
