Station , from Latin statio, is the name given to each of the four parts in which a year. The four seasons are summer , fall , winter and spring . Each one lasts three months , although the dates of its beginning and its completion will depend on the point of the Earth in which one is (northern hemisphere or southern hemisphere).
According to latitude and altitude, the range of weather changes is considerable: there are slight, in zones tropical low, and also very intense, what happens in the middle latitudes. The different periods that can be seen in these points of the planet are the seasons, which share a certain number of characteristics among themselves and that directly impact living beings.
It is possible to divide the year in other ways. In some regions and cultures, there are only two seasons: the dry season and the rainy season , differentiated according to the regime of rainfall.
It is worth mentioning that the variations of weather Terrestrial, one of the main causes of the existence of the four seasons, is more appreciated in temperate and low temperature areas than in tropical areas, where it is more difficult to perceive them. Spring and summer represent the period of the year during which the days are longer than the nights; similarly, throughout the fall and winter, the exact opposite occurs.
The reason for these climatic variations is found in the tilt of the Earth's axis; it follows that the hemisphere North, also known as Boreal, and the South, southern, receive the seasons at different times of the year (this is an inverse relationship: summer coincides with winter and spring with autumn).
During the time in which the axis The North Pole has an inclination towards the Sun, which results in the areas near the first receiving more radiation than those of the opposite pole. As expected, there comes a time of the year in which the situation is reversed, and the boreal hemisphere must withstand the lower temperatures.
In the field of academic music, "The four Seasons"is the name of a set of four concerts created by Antonio Vivaldi, one of the most outstanding Italian composers in history, born in the 17th century in Venice. The music of these four works, written for violin and orchestra, uses various sound resources to recreate each of the four seasons of the year, and it does it in an exceptional and memorable way. Unfortunately, it is one of the few titles associated with Vivaldi, despite having left countless different compositions, covering vocal and instrumental music, including dozens of fantastic operas.
Another use of the concept is associated with the place where they do stop vehicles on bus lines, rail, tram, etc. The station is also the building at the stop where offices and offices are located. For example: "Excuse me, how much is left for the next season?", “We have to descend at San Benito station and then walk three blocks”, "I'm going to eat something at the station before getting on the train".
The radio stations , on the other hand, they can be called stations: “My grandfather's favorite station is the one where tangos go all day”, “I am very happy: I got a job as an announcer at my neighborhood station”, “It's weird that a station of radio do not offer the possibility to tune it through the Internet ”.
In some parts of the world, the point of sale of fuels and lubricants for vehicles is called service station . It is common for these stations to also market other products through mini markets.
Station, finally, is each of the altars that are part of the route of the via crucis .
