Definition: Sunny-day Flooding, Radiative or Climate Forcing, Cloud Parameterization, Insolation, Four Way Test, Rotarians

One talk, complex science, modern phenomena, and deep philosophy!

Btw, there’s a new building in Halifax I know that’s going to be prone to sunny day flooding… but nobody seems to be listening.

 

Radiative or climate forcing

The difference between insolation absorbed by the Earth and energy radiated back to space

 

Insolation

Sunlight that reaches the Earth’s surface, or is absorbed by it

 

(Cloud) parameterization

Method of replacing (cloud) processes that are too small-scale or complex to be physically represented in the (atmospheric) model by a simplified process

 

Rotarians

Rotary Club members

 

Four Way Test

A nonpartisan and nonsectarian ethical guide for Rotarians to use for their personal and professional relationships (Is it the truth? Is it fair to all concerned? Will it build goodwill and better friendships? Will it be beneficial to all concerned?)

 

Sunny-day flooding

Flooding that occurs just when tides are high due to rising sea levels, rather than abnormal weather events
