3.1 What is Season?

around the Sun and the tilt of the Earth's axis relative to the plane of revolution. In Temperate and Polar regions, the seasons are marked by changes in the amount of sunlight and plants to be dormant.

Seasons happen due to the yearly revolution of the Earth

which may cause animals to go into hibernation or to migrate, The Northern hemisphere is closer to the sun at times of

the year than the southern, it is exposed to more light causing summer to come into action at different times as the earth revolves. In temperate and polar regions generally four seasons are recognized: spring, summer, autumn, winter. In some tropical and subtropical regions it is more

common to speak of the rainy (or wet, or monsoon) season versus the dry season, because the amount of precipitation may vary more dramatically than the average temperature. In other tropical areas a three-way division into hot, rainy and cool season is used. In some parts of the world, special "seasons" are loosely defined based upon important events such as a hurricane season, tornado season or a wildfire season.
