Natural phenomenon

Natural phenomena are changes produced in nature. The climate, as most scientists propose, should have a certain balance, and natural phenomena are part of it. Although, of course, some seriously affect humans, such as earthquakes, tsunamis and tornadoes.

It should be noted that some of these phenomena have intensified in recent years due to climate change, which, in turn, has been caused by the expulsion into the atmosphere of chemical components such as carbon monoxide and the disposal of toxic substances in the seas.

Its classification consists of 4 categories: hydrological natural phenomena, meteorological natural phenomena, geophysical natural phenomena, biological natural phenomena. The hydrological ones point towards tidal waves, tsunamis and storm surges. The meteorological ones include tornadoes, hurricanes, typhoons, cyclones, among others. Geophysicists harbor avalanches, earthquakes, volcano eruptions and so on. Finally, biological ones refer to epidemics that can come from animals, and that affect humans and their environment.

When natural phenomena turn into natural disasters, they can be lewd to humans. Hurricane Sandy, one of the deadliest of the 2012 season, in the United States caused very serious economic and human damage; the population that suffered its consequences, taking some years to recover.

Just as some natural phenomena cause damage, there are others that are incredible. Examples of this are the flammable bubbles of ice in Lake Abraham in Alberta, the pillars of light that appear due to the contact of rays from the moon or the sun with crystals present in the atmosphere, the polar stratospheric clouds that are characterized by their subtle fused pastel colors, like the northern lights, which owe their formation to protons and electrons that are guided by electromagnetic fields into the atmosphere.

Natural phenomena are considered to become more extreme with the passage of time. This is a warning for the future because, with the intensified aggressiveness of natural disasters, humanity may live through one of the most chaotic eras in history. Evidence of this is seen today, with climate change and disasters that are leaving scars in the affected countries. According to scientific reports, we could even be approaching a new age of ice and extreme cold.
