Heat waves, drought, dust


Heat stress

Several thousand people die each


year worldwide from heat stress.
Most deaths in North America occur
in inner cities in the southeastern US.
Severe urban pollution may be a
contributing factor.

Look at the figures how these Droughts are effecting the humans
,animals as well the plants

What is Drought ?

There are many definitions ,


but usually it is a period of
time where there is much
less than average rainfall.

Drought is when an area gets less than its normal amount of


rain over months or even year . crops and other plants need
water to grow , and land animals need it to live.

Drought affects our lives in many


different ways because water is
such an important part of so many
of our activities. We need water to
live , and animals , and plants do
too.

causes of drought

Redused the rainfall result in drought


Occures because water vapour not brought by air currents to right areas
at right times.
Unusual currents of cold and warm water in oceans creates high pressure
. EI Nino causes drought inAsia.
Mountain prevent wind from moisture to needy region.

Droughtis

an environmental
extreme that is
characterized by an
absence of precipitation in
the local and regional
water cycle as a
consequence of
interactions of elements of
the atmosphere,
hydrosphere, and
lithosphere.

DROUGHT HAZARDS

THINKING SESSION

Brain Relaxer 2.1

Read to the news


INDIAN EXPRESS 2010-2011
Thiruvananthapuram: The china drought was a
drought
the began in late 2010 and impacted eight
provinces in the northern part of the Peoples
Republic
of China (PRC). It was the
worst
drought to hit the country in 60 years, and it
affected most of wheat producing regions in the
PRC

From the above


news it is clear
that drought
affected the living
beings and as well
the plans also

DROUGHT HAZARDS

(AKA Potential disaster Agents)


HIGH TEMPERATURES
VERY LOW HUMIDITY
LOSS OF SOIL MOISTURE
VANISHING STREAMS, LAKES, AND
WATER TABLES

DROUGHT LINKAGES AND


RISKS

Drought is linked to loss of water


quantity and quality, which can lead
to major loss of life (people and
livestock), loss of livelihoods, loss of
habitats, and sometimes famine.

NOTE:

Between 108 BC and 1911 AD,


1,828 famines of varying
severity occurred in China (i.e.,
one nearly every year in at least
one province

NOTE

Millions in China have


died from lack of food
