  [hs height=”450″ theme=”3d-dark” buttons=”true” ] 00:03 Hey friends, I came here to meet an old friend. 00:07 But my! It’s so hot here. 00:10 Hey, Dr. B there you are. 00:13 Hey, I was just telling my friends how hot it is here. 00:17 Well yes, that’s because we fall under the Torrid Zone. 00:22 Oh, that reminds me, today, I’ll tell you of all the different Climate Zones of the Earth. 00:29 Zoom in. 00:31 The climate zones of Earth, are distinguished by the latitudes that run across the Earth’s surface. 00:38 The most important ones are… 00:41 The Equator. 00:42 Tropic of Cancer. 00:43 Tropic of Capricorn. 00:45 The Arctic Circle. 00:47 And the Antarctic Circle. 00:50 The region between the two tropics, is the Torrid Zone. 00:54 Or the Tropic Zone. 00:56 This is the hottest part of the Earth. 00:58 The Sun’s heat falls directly on this zone, during the Solstice and the Equinoxes. 01:06 Did those words just bounce off your head? 01:09 Solstice and Equinox? 01:12 Well, the time of the year when the Sun passes overhead.. 01:16 ..the farthest North, is known as the Summer Solstice. 01:20 It usually takes place on the 22nd of June. 01:25 And the Winter Solstice is when the sun passes farthest South of the Equator. 01:32 Which usually happens on the 22nd of December. 01:36 And an Equinox happens either of the 2 times each year. 01:41 When the sun crosses the Equator and day and night are approximately of equal length.. 01:47 ..almost everywhere on Earth. 01:50 Mark the dates, again! 01:52 It usually happens on March 21st and September 23rd. 01:59 The Torrid zone includes, most of Africa, Southern India, Southern Asia, Indonesia.. 02:06 New Guinea, Northern Australia, Southern Mexico, Central America, Northern South America. 02:16 Next is the Temperate Zones. 02:18 Which fall between the two tropics. 02:21 And the Arctic Circle in the North. 02:24 And the Antarctic Circle in the South respectively. 02:27 This is the perfect vacation zone. 02:31 As it usually has mild temperatures. 02:34 And enjoys all the 4 seasons, annually. 02:37 Summer Spring Autumn and Winter. 02:41 This is because, in these regions, the sun is never directly overhead. 02:47 These are the regions that fall in the Temperate Zone. 02:51 The North Temperate Zone includes, Great Britain, Europe, Northern Asia,.. 02:57 North America and Northern Mexico. 03:01 The South Temperate zone includes Southern Australia, New Zealand,.. 03:06 ..Southern South America and South Africa. 03:11 The last of the zones is the other extreme. 03:15 And so it’s called the Frigid Zones. 03:18 It is the coldest part of the planet. 03:21 These zones lie beyond the Arctic and Antarctic circles. 03:26 So, you know they are freezing. 03:30 And even their day-night cycles are super weird. 03:34 That’s right. Sometimes the sun doesn’t rise or set for 24 hours. 03:40 And sometimes, the day is literally one year long. 03:45 With 6 months of daylight and 6 months of night. 03:49 TRIVIA TIME! 03:52 The edges of the Temperate zones are also sometimes referred to.. 03:57 ..as the Subtropics, Subarctic, and Subantarctic. 04:03 Aristotle, the ancient Greek Scholar,.. 04:05 ..was the first one to come up with the idea of Climate Zones! 04:11 Well friends, now you have a better idea of how the climate of our planet works. 04:18 And seeing how the climates are getting all Topsy- turvey, these days,… 04:23 You know where it might be going wrong. 04:27 So, tune in next time for more fun facts! 04:30 This is me zooming out. 04:33 Hey kids, you liked my videos, didn’t you? 04:37 Before you go, don’t forget to click on the subscribe button and the bell. 04:42 So you won’t miss out on my latest videos. 04:47 See you.
