Transcripts - Natural disasters Group2

  • 1. Natural disasters connected with water Group2
  • 2. Flood A flood results from an overflow of water beyond its normal confines of a body of water such as a lake, or the accumulation of water over land areas.
  • 3. Hail Hailstorm is a type of precipitation where rain drops become ice lumps before they hit the ground. Heavy hailstorm with particularly large lumps of ice may result in significant losses, especially in agriculture.
  • 4. Storm Phenomenon occurring over areas of the seas and oceans in the form of strong, gusty wind. Strong winds give rise to a huge and dangerous waves.
  • 5. Tsunami Tsunami can be caused by underwater earthquakes. Tsunami waves are not like ordinary ocean waves, since their wavelength is much longer. A huge wave is more dangerous because it can strike at land and destroy coastal
  • 6. Acid rain Acid rain is precipitation containing acids produced in the reaction of water with engrossed in air pollution and cause acidification.
  • 7. Landslide It is a sudden movement of masses of soil and rock masses caused by forces of nature. The landslides may occur as a result of increased soil moisture due to long-term rainfall or thaw. Places where landslides occur the most often are natural slopes and valley slopes.
  • 8. Fog Fog - drops of water (or ice crystals) suspended in the air. Fog causes a major reduction of visibility which can be very dangerous.
  • 9. Ocean current This is a continuous, directed movement of seawater generated by forces acting upon this mean flow, such as breaking waves, wind, the Coriolis effect.
