The Effects of Global Warming 2 Recently, Global warming has become one of the most discussed topics among the scientific community and there have been many debates to whether or not this phenomenon is actually occurring. However, research and scientific studies have proven that global warming is actually happening. One of the main effects of global warming has been the relocation of climatic zones by temperature, related to ecosystems and rainfall. Some continue to argue that it is simply a collection of theories that have been overestimated by scientists alone. Over the past decade global warming has affected the rise of temperature, which has impacted the weather since it was last recorded, and the unremitting rise of seawater because of the Arctic meltdown is also making matters worse. Along with all these global changes it is also affecting agriculture and human health. The whole globe will eventually see a change in the Earth's weather , however some areas will see the change more dramatically than in other parts of the world. It is predicted by scientist that at some point, global warming will be very noticeable in the Northern Hemisphere’s most northern regions. These regions will experience a dramatic rise in temperatures more than other areas of the earth’s surface. Due to the cause of that, the mountain glaciers will minimize, leaving hardly any ice to float on the surfaces of the Northern Oceans 7 . Likewise, areas that tend to have light winter snows will start to see this slowly diminish over the years. On the other hand, moderate mountains areas will begin to produce higher snowlines, but their snow-packs will melt at a very fast rate ( Straneo , 2013). In addition, seasons will also be felt differently in other areas of the world. The Earth’s temperatures during the winter and even its nighttime will raise places with warm climate will 7 7 Straneo, F., & Heimbach, P. (2013). North Atlantic warming and the retreat of Greenland's  outlet glaciers.  Nature,  36-43. doi:10.1038/nature12854

The Effects of Global Warming 3 experience an increase in humidity due to the evaporating ocean waters, but studies have yet to prove if the humid atmosphere will continue to escalate warm levels 1 . However, if humidity were to increase then the water vapor created could produce more clouds into the Earth's atmosphere, thus helping the sunlight to become reflected into space, which may slow the rises in temperature ( Byrne, 2015 ).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
