Climate Control in YN

Postby Imarssia » Mon Jul 05, 2021 2:40 pm

What is the climate like and how does climate control for buildings work YN, assuming its needed? Anything from geothermal floor heating to igloo homes goes.

What is the usual temperature and humidity range? What part of the world is it in? If it spans many climates, then what are they for each region?
The usual temperature range is from around 20'C to 30'C at 70% to 100% humidity for much of the country, as its located in the tropical zone near the equator, so it's environment resembles that of Singapore or Indonesia.

Does YN experience the four temperate seasons (spring, summer, autumn, winter) or the two tropic ones (wet, dry)?
Imarssia experiences the two tropic seasons as it's just north of the equator, near to Papua New Guinea and The Philippines.

What are the health effects of this, if any?
It can sometimes be dangerous to do strenuous activity outside, especially if unfit or elderly, as it can lead to heatstroke, and be sure to have extra sunblock, especially if you're White.
It also has the wider societal effect of people being more introverted, preferring indoor activities, and being more active at night.

Are there parts of YN where climate control is necessary? If so, what types are commonly used? How affordable and available is it?
The vast majority of the nation requires it to be comfortable or healthy if exerting yourself during the day. This is of course in the form of air conditioning but a simple fan + a dehumidifier is an option for those who lack access or cannot afford aircon. Fortunately, electricity is very cheap here due to plentiful hydropower capacity and waste-to-energy generation, so its not uncommon for the cooling to be left on all night despite guzzling electricity.

The Holy Folkish Order of Evergar lies within East Europe and borders modern-day Ukraine, Romania, and Bulgaria with the rest of its territory connected to the Black Sea. Humidity levels tend to stay reasonably low, the highest ever recorded being 71%. Average temperatures for Spring and Autum can range between 49-70°F, while Winter in median temperatures range anywhere from -10-45°F. Its climate is polar.

Does YN experience the four temperate seasons (spring, summer, autumn, winter) or the two tropic ones (wet, dry)?
Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter

What are the health effects of this, if any?
The only worrisome case to fear is having a coldness-oriented ailment, such as hypothermia and frostbite, although these occurrences prove somewhat rare unless you find yourself lost and unfit for basic survival in the wildernesses. Citizens have caught such afflictions before and died, but the annual death rate for these circumstances is as low as 1 death per year.

Climate change, at least the most widely discussed version (which is apocalyptic and originated as a pseudoscientific claim in the 1980s), has been formally dismissed as a concern by the Ultranationalist government. However, this doesn't mean Evergarians don't believe in ecofriendliness--actually far from it. Many national parks, forestry, and natural landscapes have been declared free from industrial interference and have adopted legislative measures to ensure those kinds of places are preserved. Also the regime has on numerous accounts permitted construction of nuclear power plants as well as authorized some mass-public transit be built to reduce congestion on major traffic areas.

What is the usual temperature and humidity range? What part of the world is it in? If it spans many climates, then what are they for each region?
Zayeid is located on the Arabian Peninsula, bordered by Saudi Arabia, Bahrain (via a bridge), Qatar and the U.A.E.

The climate of Zayeid is subtropical-arid with hot summers and warm winters. The climate is categorized as desert climate. The hottest months are July and August, when average maximum temperatures reach above 45°C (113°F) on the coastal plain. Average minimum temperatures in January and February are between 10 and 14°C (50 and 57°F). The average annual rainfall in the coastal area is less than 120 mm (4.7 in), but in some mountainous areas annual rainfall often reaches 350 mm (13.8 in). Rain in the coastal region falls in short, torrential bursts during the winter months, sometimes resulting in floods in ordinarily dry wadi beds. The region is prone to occasional, violent dust storms, which can severely reduce visibility.

Does YN experience the four temperate seasons (spring, summer, autumn, winter) or the two tropic ones (wet, dry)?
Zayeid is almost always dry, even in winter. Rain storms in winter are usually short and torrential.

What are the health effects of this, if any?
Dust storms cause breathing problems, and extremely high temperatures represent a danger to life.

Are there parts of YN where climate control is necessary? If so, what types are commonly used? How affordable and available is it?
Climate control is not used.

However, bus stops are fitted with water mist devices, as are shops and other outdoor areas. Many public parks have shaded swimming pools.

What is the usual temperature and humidity range? What part of the world is it in? If it spans many climates, then what are they for each region? It differs a little from north to south. The far north has a tropical climate (Koppen Af/Aw), most of the country has a monsoon-influenced humid subtropical climate (Koppen Cwa) and the south has a monsoon-influenced continental climate (Koppen Dwa).

In summer most of the country is in the high 20s/low 30s Celsius, with high humidity and a lot of rain. Winters are usually dry and while the tropical north still has temperatures in the mid 20s Celsius, most of the country will be in the teens Celsius while the deep south will be below freezing. Snow tends to only fall in the southern two islands, being rare to unheard of further north.

Does YN experience the four temperate seasons (spring, summer, autumn, winter) or the two tropic ones (wet, dry)? Technically both, although the seasons are much more pronounced in the south than the north. The entire country is notably wetter in summer than in winter. (This is known locally as "Romata Raumati" or "Summer Tears").

What are the health effects of this, if any? The most pronounced weather-related health effects are in the south, where winters are sometimes bitterly cold.

Are there parts of YN where climate control is necessary? If so, what types are commonly used? How affordable and available is it? For most areas south of Tamaki it's necessary to have heating in winter and buildings must have adequate insulation. Central heating is still uncommon, however it is usually found throughout the southern cities simply due to its necessity in winter - although it is seen as something of a luxury and often quite expensive. Most people just have gas and electric heaters.

Air conditioning is absolutely a luxury, even in the warmer parts of the country. If you have AC that's something of a status symbol, most people just grin and bear the heat and humidity.

What is the usual temperature and humidity range? What part of the world is it in? If it spans many climates, then what are they for each region? Depending on how far north or south you are, the temperature can vary greatly. The humidity however is always very high except in mountainlocked Volare, a region which rarely sees rain (and is classified as a wet desert despite the lush forests in its valley), but recieves steady fresh waterflow from the mountains around it through glaicers and the rainshadows the mountains cast. Only the biggest of storms can bring rain to Volare

Does YN experience the four temperate seasons (spring, summer, autumn, winter) or the two tropic ones (wet, dry)?Depending on how far north or south you are of the poles, Cosnicu can have four seasons, two seasons, or (in the case of mountainlocked Volare and Icy Cosinca) just one.

What are the health effects of this, if any? Heat-related illnesses (such as heat exaustion and heatstroke) are the biggest cause of death in Cosnicu excluding old age

Are there parts of YN where climate control is necessary? If so, what types are commonly used? How affordable and available is it? It is very cheap, most use heat pumps or natural airflow to cool a location, although in come cases refrigeration is used.

Hello All,

Rho Ophiuchi's responses are shown below.

What is the usual temperature and humidity range? What part of the world is it in? If it spans many climates, then what are they for each region?
It is usually around 25 to 35 Celsius at 5:30 AM, when the temperatures are lowest, and around 45 to 55 Celsius at 6:00 PM, when the temperatures are highest. While sunlight is definitely a large factor in the heating of the city, its temperatures are boosted beyond what would be normal, even in a tropical climate, by the operation of factories employing over a hundred million people for twelve hours every day. Under extreme conditions such as extremely low wind or a heat wave, temperatures can reach 60, 65, or in record cases even 70 degrees Celsius.

Does YN experience the four temperate seasons (spring, summer, autumn, winter) or the two tropic ones (wet, dry)?
No. Rho Ophiuchi is on the equator, and as such does not experience seasons.

What are the health effects of this, if any?
Heat stroke is incredibly common, and is a major cause of death, exceeded only by a select few other causes. Additionally, the heat has led to a primarily subterranean-focused type of urbanization, with the buildings above the surface complimented by immense networks of repurposed pipes, tunnels, and basements as well as commercial establishments, with a few tunnels extending farther than half a kilometer below the surface. As the deep underground usually maintains temperatures closer to 10 of 15 Celsius, this dramatically helps.

Are there parts of YN where climate control is necessary? If so, what types are commonly used? How affordable and available is it?
Absolutely - climate control systems are quite a large industry in Rho Ophiuchi, with many using underground thermal masses to augment their capabilities, and discussion of large-scale air conditioning and heat removal of and from entire sections of the city has been discussed.
Sincerely,
Rho Ophiuchi

What is the usual temperature and humidity range? What part of the world is it in? If it spans many climates, then what are they for each region? The Atlantic Federalist Republic is located in the middle of the North Atlantic Ocean. We are in the Northern Temperate Zone, in the northern regions temperatures are between 28-32 Celsius in summer. And 24-27 Celsius in winter. In the southernmost region, temperatures usually increase by 2 Celsius more. In the central region, temperatures are usually more balanced due to the large lake present in the region. Humidity in the South is 63% while in the North it is 76%. The rains hit hard in the winter while the summer is dry and sunny throughout the country.

Does YN experience the four temperate seasons (spring, summer, autumn, winter) or the two tropic ones (wet, dry)? Four seasons (In Weston State it does not snow while in other regions precipitation occurs in the form of snow. But not every winter)

What are the health effects of this, if any? During the summer many people end up getting sunburned or forgetting to hydrate. Few cases are fatal.

Are there parts of YN where climate control is necessary? If so, what types are commonly used? How affordable and available is it? Yes. Normally, gas heaters are used in winter, with all closed environments having heating and installation prices being very low. Air conditioning is more used in the south but almost every home in the country has one, all public environments the price varies from region to region.

99 is normal, in Egyptian desert its wet and dry thougth its more like very dry and less dry
What are the health effects of this, if any?
Heat strokes more common.
Are there parts of YN where climate control is necessary? If so, what types are commonly used? How affordable and available is it?
In most of the areas yes, but not for most population. Mostly air conditioners in south and heaters in north. Affordability and avaibility better as there was an extra manufacturing going on cuz of a expected heat wawe.

As a space station, temperature and humidity are heavily regulated to be at a constant, comfortable range.

Our station's hydroponic system is top of the line and are what is deemed necessary to grow crops and prevent environmental collapse.

What are the health effects of this, if any?
Having an artificial environment runs the risk of runaway cascade failure if one or more systems are too heavily damaged.

What is the usual temperature and humidity range? What part of the world is it in? If it spans many climates, then what are they for each region?
Indian Empire spans many climates and the weather in these varies by season.

The deserts in the Eastern Half of the Country are the warmest areas, including the major cities of Saltune, Stevnstrup, and Visse. The desert regions rarely dip below 20-25C in Winter and can be frequently above 40 celsius in the summer.
The plains region covering most of the center of the country, including the cities of Omme, Rejsby, and Kokkedal, has a fairly temperate climate. In this region, temperatures dip to around 20C in winter and 30C in summer.
The taiga regions, with notable cities of Christiansfeld and Skovsende, is one of the coldest regions in the country. This region can get down to -5C in Winter and 20C in summer. Snow is rare in this region, but not impossible
The tundra region is the coldest region in Indian Empire and includes Mummark and Kjerteminde. This is the only area of Indian Empire where it snows frequently, and can dip to -10C in winter and can occasionally reach 20C in summer.
The heavily populated coastal region, with Povlsen, Kandester, and Trasbjerg, is a west coast of the US style climate, with temperatures fluctuating from 20-30C yearly, but they can occasionally be higher or lower.

Does YN experience the four temperate seasons (spring, summer, autumn, winter) or the two tropic ones (wet, dry)?
Indian Empire experiences all four regions across every part of the country, though in certain places it certainly feels like they have the tropic style seasons, given they never get too cold.

What are the health effects of this, if any?
This varies by region. In the warmer and colder regions, sometimes athletic outdoor activities are considered dangerous due to the heat or cold. However, this is usually compensated for on a region by region basis. These regions often have climate controlled stadiums for athletic events, and indoor recreational facilities for area residents to work out at. In hotter regions, sporting events that require an outdoor environment, such as marathons, are run at night or early morning with athletes required to wear a wristband with a portable flashlight to help with vision in the dark. Events that must be during the daytime and outdoors, such as surfing, are still held, but with extra intermission periods so that athletes may rest, hydrate, and apply sunscreen as necessary. Outdoor athletic arenas are also still open in warmer areas, but must close down if the high temperature for the day is 50 celsius or higher. The impacts in cooler areas are similar. In areas that remain relatively warm year round, such as the capital region and the plains, usually have retractable stadium domes depending on the weather and largely have normal life, though in these regions, outdoor workouts are extremely common. However, exercise is viewed as imperative in Empirian culture so it isn't slacked on because of the weather. The biggest impact tends to be on crops, as people may stay inside more (albeit still work out) in warm or cold weather, while excess heat or cold may harm local sellers of produce.

Are there parts of YN where climate control is necessary? If so, what types are commonly used? How affordable and available is it?
Yes, usually the warmer and colder regions. As the weather can fluctuate quite a bit, every home across the country usually has both heating and air conditioning that they may turn on or off depending on the outside temperature. In hotter regions, such as the desert east or the populated coastal areas, it isn't uncommon to see coolers of water and sunscreen at the corner of certain busy intersections, to give passers by the opportunity to cool down and avoid sunburn. Generally, the water and sunscreen in these situations is provided on the city's dime and are free to the populace. Air conditioning/heating usually has a monthly cost, though the bill is low and those who can't afford it are eligible for government assistance to cover it. In colder regions, localities usually run a donation drive for coats, hats, gloves, and other winter gear and provide it to those who may not be able to afford winter clothes.
