When it comes to literature, weather can be used in many different ways. It can symbolize theme, set the mood of the story, and even affect the plot. In Tangerine by Edward Bloor, the weather acts as a plot device and as a symbol.
From the populus beaches in Miami, Florida, ranging to the snowy ski slopes of Wyoming, climate change is transforming the real estate market. It is thought that climate change is mostly the product of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases being released into the air, but many Americans are unaware that if the trend with climate change continues, the financial landscape of real estate will drastically be affected. Insurance cost will increase, the retail value of homes will decrease, and the overall appeal of famous vacation areas will decline if global warming continues to impact the country. Sea levels are rising, hurricanes are destroying entire cities, and heat waves are affecting areas all over the world due to climate change. These
In the book, “The Great Gatsby,” written by F. Scott Fitzgerald, I had found a few symbols that seemed to interest me but the one that caught my attention the most was “the weather.”
The presentation was scheduled for the first week of December 1990. Mr. Pross outlined the use of various derivatives, noting that they differed widely in their ability to reduce risk. If the company was, say, placing a large bid to buy a building abroad, one might prefer to use foreign currency options to hedge the currency risk in the event the deal fell through. He argued, however, that foreign currency futures were best suited to hedge the fluctuations in revenues arising from currency movements. Mr. Pross proposed a plan to hedge currency risk using futures which
Weather to quit his day job as a security and dedicate his time to selling stuff from a backpack, or to keep the day job, give up selling, and continue living paycheck to paycheck. The choice seemed simple, but there would be a lot of precautions. He decided just to quit the security job. He later got home and went to sleep, ignoring all the toys and clothes on the floor. The next morning he waited till Natalie left for work and to drive the kids to school. James called the office and quit, then showered and jumped in the car. He drove around to the city and finally found restaurant on the far westside of Harlem and he wanted more things to sell. He got 6 more bags and James bought little bags so he can sell by the gram. He pitched it to Dion and said that he could get more money out of
2. On an individual basis, people use weather forecasts to make a decision regarding what to wear, whether they need an umbrella, guard against the sun or even medication against oddly high pollen
Weather is created by the movement of air masses of different temperature and moisture content moving around the Earth’s atmosphere and interacting with each other.
In a piece of literary work weather is never just weather. Rain, snow, storms, and even rainbows all have their distinct meanings and in most cases usually symbolize something much deeper. Weather can change the entire mood of a novel and this is important because at times authors use weather to symbolize what is going on emotionally with a character. Two works of literature that use weather accordingly and symbolically are Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte and The Odyssey by Homer.
Mitigation of weather related impacts are possible if the public/clients are kept informed with the most precise forecast so that the right decisions are made.

The value chain depicted in Figure 3, page 5 (SETT, 2016) was used as a starting point. The Weather/ Climate/Water component, seen in Figure 3 of the Socioeconomic Benefits Tiger Team (SETT) Report, has been altered as depicted in Figure 1 (of this document). An image of an atmospheric bore captured by Suomi-NPP off the North Atlantic coast of the U.S. is displayed in the background (although any meteorological image could be substituted). The list of satellite observations are from the NCEP real time data dump for hourly observations, but the observations could be obtained from any source. The Meteorological and Environmental Models are data models that can be derived from the listed satellite observations using algorithms that are based upon brightness temperature difference techniques or other calculation methodologies. The Generating Warnings, Alerts, and Forecast portion of the value chain is comprised of the entities that issue forecasts, warnings, and alerts i.e.: NWS, The Weather Channel, universities, non-profit organizations, individual citizens, etc. The value or benefit component of the value chain is realized by prevention of accidental encounters with meteorological events resulting in injuries or fatalities, reducing travel delays, and by providing opportunities for asset preservation (Styers, 2017).
When people think of a character they think of their traits, who they are. Weather may not appear as though it has a personality but under the surface it has a strong personality. Weather has psychotic tendencies. It shows no remorse to the people and things around it. Weather is passionate, happening all in a fury. Weather is also calm and easing going, as on a breezy sunny day. Just as a character has traits and feelings, weather
Just like Foster said, “It’s never is just rain” (Foster 70). Using weather (creepy weather
Any company whose revenue is affected by weather has a potential need for weather derivatives. Some of these industries include
My interest on PDEs dates back to high school. Since typhoons frequently struck my hometown, I developed interest in the forecast of tropical cyclones. Guided by a net-pal with a master’s degree in meteorology, I started to systematically study the basics of weather prediction. However, when reading Principles of Meteorological Analysis, I encountered PDEs describing dynamics of atmosphere, which was incomprehensible for me then. Realizing that a solid math foundation would be critical to further study in meteorology, I chose to study mathematics in University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA).
