  • How are Cyclones named in the World?

    The World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) maintains lists of the names appropriate for each tropical cyclone. If the speed of a cyclone is more than 34 nautical miles per hour then it becomes necessary to give it a special name. In the Atlantic region the tradition of giving name to the Hurricane and Cyclone continues since 1953. There are different types of cyclones named around the world. The names of the cyclones in the Australia are given on the name of corrupt politicians.

  • Major Climatic Regions of the world

    The world has several climatic zones but geographer defined the climatic region is based on maximum and minimum temperatures and the temperature range as well as the total and seasonal distribution of precipitation for better understanding. Find out the Major Climatic Regions of the world which is very useful for the preparation of competitive examinations like UPSC-prelims, SSC, State Services, NDA, CDS, and Railways etc.

  • Weather Disturbances

    Weather is the state of the atmosphere, to the degree that it is hot or cold, wet or dry, calm or stormy, clear or cloudy.

  • Precipitation

    Precipitation occurs when a portion of the atmosphere becomes saturated with water vapour, so that the water condenses and "precipitates".

  • Earth’s heat budget and its radiation balance

    Earth's heat-budget or Earth's radiation balance refers to the net flow of energy into Earth in the form of shortwave radiation and the outgoing infrared long-wave radiation into space.

  • Dielectric Constant and Momentum

    The dielectric constant is the relative permittivity of a dielectric material. It is an important parameter in characterizing capacitors. Momentum is a corner stone concept in Physics. It is a conserved quantity.

  • Refractive Index: Lenses

    Thinner, lighter high-index lenses are especially recommended if you have a strong eyeglass prescription for nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism.

  • Refraction and Reflectivity

    The refractive index is retrieved from direct phase and amplitude measurements for transmission and reflection, which are all in excellent agreement with simulations. The reflection angle is equal to the incidence angle, and the amount of light that is reflected is determined by the reflectivity of the surface.

  • Refractive Index: Phase Speed

    The refractive index can be defined as the ratio of the speed of light in vacuum and the phase speed of light in a material.
