Four Seasons at … (… 的一年四季) : 您除左去飛…都可以了解下人地既地方嫁麻~

Hong Kong Definition of seasons |Hong Kong Observatory(HKO)|Educational Resources Background 香港位於亞熱帶,一年中亦有不同的氣候特徵,例如一、二月較冷,七、八月則較熱,六至八月較為多雨,而十一、十二月則較乾燥及雲量較少。目前,香港天文台採用「氣象季節」來劃分四季,並提供各季節的氣候資料分析和氣候服務,其範圍包括季節預測、趨勢分析、排名計算、氣候變化研究等。「氣象季節」是將一年分為四個長度大致相等的時段(即每三個月為一段),以北半球為例,最溫暖和最冷的時段分別指定為夏季(六月、七月和八月)和冬季(十二月、一月和二月),介乎於夏季和冬季之間就是秋季(九月、十月和十一月)和春季(三月、四月和五月)。這個定義亦與香港30年(1981-2010)月平均氣溫(圖1)所描繪的年度溫度週期大致吻合,即六月、七月和八月通常是最熱的三個月,而十二月、一月和二月是一年中最冷的三個月。 使用「氣象季節」的優點是每年的季節長度和季節開始時間大致不變,在研究分析、結果比較和服務產品發展上較為簡單方便。而公眾和特別用戶亦可以容易理解和使用相關數據和產品。世界上主要的氣候中心,如北京氣候中心、歐洲中期天氣預報中心、日本氣象廳、美國國家海洋和大氣管理局等也基於「氣象季節」來進行氣候分析和提供一些氣候服務。 除了「氣象季節」外,一些研究人員和氣象機構亦會以不同氣象要素和指標來劃分四季及其他特定季節,例如以滑動平均氣溫來計算每年進入四個季節的日期、以降雨量來計算雨季的開始日期、以季候風水文循環的特徵來判斷進入季風季節的日期等。這些以觀測數據為基礎的季節劃分法一般較複雜,較多用於氣候研究之上。而計算出來的季節開始和結束日期每年都有明顯變化,同一套劃分法在不同地區亦不一定完全適用。 Hong Kong’s climate is sub-tropical with different climatic characteristics throughout the year. For example, January and February are colder, July and August are hotter, June to August are rainier, while November and December are drier and less cloudy. Currently, the Hong Kong Read More
