WHAT DOES SEASON MEAN IN ENGLISH?

season

Season

A season is a division of the year, marked by changes in weather, ecology, and hours of daylight. Seasons result from the yearly orbit of the Earth around the Sun and the tilt of the Earth's rotational axis relative to the plane of the orbit. In temperate and polar regions, the seasons are marked by changes in the intensity of sunlight that reaches the Earth's surface, variations of which may cause animals to go into hibernation or to migrate, and plants to be dormant. During May, June, and July, the northern hemisphere is exposed to more direct sunlight because the hemisphere faces the sun. The same is true of the southern hemisphere in November, December, and January. It is the tilt of the Earth that causes the Sun to be higher in the sky during the summer months which increases the solar flux. However, due to seasonal lag, June, July, and August are the hottest months in the northern hemisphere and December, January, and February are the hottest months in the southern hemisphere. In temperate and subpolar regions, four calendar-based seasons are generally recognized: spring, summer, autumn and winter.

Definition of season in the English dictionary

The first definition of season in the dictionary is one of the four equal periods into which the year is divided by the equinoxes and solstices, resulting from the apparent movement of the sun north and south of the equator during the course of the earth's orbit around it. These periods have their characteristic weather conditions in different regions, and occur at opposite times of the year in the N and S hemispheres. Other definition of season is a period of the year characterized by particular conditions or activities. Season is also the period during which any particular species of animal, bird, or fish is legally permitted to be caught or killed.
