Considering doing this event. Other than the obvious, what is it like and what can I expect?

Is it straightforward or a bit more complex?

It's straightforward in the sense that the topics are clearly laid out in the rules. It's complex in the sense that climate is large scale and more abstract than most weather topics...what I'd be careful about is that it's easy to get a decent handle on this but hard to master. I guess Solar System is largely the same way.

Does anyone have some good links for parameter c. That is the one about the earth's radiative energy balance

Google "Earth's energy budget" and look through the images.

Hi,

If I'm interested in this event, what resources would be best to refer to? At this point, I just want to get a basic overview of the tested information. Other from basics, what websites are good for studying more in-depth for this event? Thank you! :)

I'm not certain of websites (it's been a while) but an introductory level undergraduate textbook should be very useful - that's how I started studying when I first did Meteorology (also when it was climate, in 2015). The wiki (and external links) are alright, but don't really cover the event fully.

Do you know any undergraduate textbooks that are best for this year's Meteorology in Science Olympiad?

This appears to be an effective textbook, but maybe an older version of this can work to if you're planning to save some cash.

So is the test going to be mainly definitions of are we going to list any gases or name any locations or climate types and there causes.

along that does anyone know where i can find practice test on climate :? :? :? :? :?
