What is climate change?

Climate is a long term pattern of weather in an area. Whereas, climate change is long-term shifts in termperatures and weather patterns.

Effects of climate change locally.

Our students have done research on the effects of climate change in their locality . Madurai has a tropical climate, although it borders closely upon hot semi-arid climate.

Madurai is one of the major city in the Indian state of Tamilnadu. Madurai has been a major settlement for two millenia. It is often referred to as "Thoonga Nagaram", meaning " the city which never sleeps".

 

A study based on the available data indicates rising trends in atmospheric temperature over Madurai city attributed to rapid urbanization, industrialization and deforestation.
