Seasonal changes?
« on: January 01, 2008, 09:58:32 AM »
If this has been discussed before, I haven't seen it, so just post a link to the thread and STFU.

Why is there a 4 seasonal change (Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter) in regions on the Earth between 23.5 and 66.5 North and South latitude? Furthermore, these occure in conjugated pairs on the Northern and the Suthern disks (Summer - Winter, Autumn - Spring). Then, why is there only a 2 seasonal change (Hot and Cold) in the equatorial region with lattiudes between 23.5 South and North, occuring in conjugated pairs? According to the FE model, of course.

 :-\ How is that a victory?  The explanation is the same in FE as it is in RE.  Because areas near the equator get more sunlight at a more direct angle, it is hotter, and only gets cooler as the sun is further away.  There is no winter because it doesn't get cold enough to snow, and there is still enough sunlight for plants create chlorophyll year round.

Here is what the faq says:

Q: How do seasons work?

The radius of the sun's orbit around the Earth's axis symmetry varies throughout the year, being smallest when summer is in the northern annulus and largest when it is summer in the southern annulus.
