 Southern Hemisphere - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Southern Hemisphere is the half of a planet's surface (or celestial sphere) that is south of the equator (the word hemisphere literally means 'half ball').
The Southern Hemisphere is significantly less polluted than the Northern Hemisphere due to lower overall population densities, lower levels of industrialisation, and smaller land masses (air currents run mostly east-west, so pollution doesn't easily spread north or south).
In the Southern Hemisphere the sun passes from East to West in the North.

 Northern Hemisphere - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Northern Hemisphere is the half of a planet's surface (or celestial sphere) that is north of the equator (the word hemisphere literally means 'half ball').
In theory, northern hemisphere winters would therefore tend to be shorter and less severe than southern hemisphere winters at equivalent latitudes, but in practice, the moderating effect of the larger southern hemisphere oceans more than compensates for this effect.

 Southern Hemisphere Enlarged View   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
This plot shows the current extent and position of the auroral oval in the southern hemisphere, extrapolated from measurements taken during the most recent polar pass of the NOAA POES satellite.
For example, the presentation gives a guide to the possibility that the aurora is located near a given location in the southern hemisphere under the conditions that existed at the time of the most recent polar satellite pass.
The process to estimate the hemispheric power, and the level of auroral activity, involves using this normalization factor which takes into account how effective the satellite was in sampling the aurora during its transit over the polar region.

 NWO - Plankton cool the southern hemisphere
Although the majority of plankton are found between the middle and high latitudes in the northern hemisphere, the effect of these on the climate is greatest in the southern hemisphere.
Also in the southern hemisphere there is a higher DMS flux from the sea to the atmosphere and the sea surface area is greater.
Finally, the atmosphere has a lower oxidation capacity in the southern hemisphere than in the northern hemisphere, which means that less DMS is broken down in the atmosphere.

In the northern hemisphere this is the natural arrangement between the five celestial animals shown on the Lo Shu grid (and Lo Pan compass).
In the southern hemisphere, if you position the south direction to our source of light and heat, it should point to the north (our natural heat and light source), which creates an incongruity in the Lo Shu grid and the celestial arrangement of animals.
If you point the grid to the south direction (in the southern hemisphere) then this is facing the south pole which is a sources of coldness - incongruent with the south or fire direction.

 PALEOCLIMATOLOGY: NORTHERN-SOUTHERN HEMISPHERE LINKAGE   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
This out-of-phase relationship between the two hemispheres has been invoked as evidence for a bipolar climate "seesaw"(3), where cooling in the Northern Hemisphere is balanced by warming in the Southern Hemisphere.
One prime suspect for the cause of this disruption is a freshening of the surface ocean in the North Atlantic and the Nordic seas caused by massive releases of melt water from the surrounding ice sheets.
2) In summary: Climate variability in the high-latitude Southern Hemisphere is dominated by the SH annular mode, a large-scale pattern of variability characterized by fluctuations in the strength of the circumpolar vortex.

 Southern Hemisphere Astronomy: The Moon
In the southern hemisphere, we're standing on the opposite side of the globe from the "northerners", so we are "upside down" from each other!
In fact, we in the southern hemisphere view most of the stars quite differently than from the northern hemisphere.
Of course, the effect is just the opposite in the southern hemisphere, where the seasons are reversed.

 Feng Shui: Goin' South   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
The Southern Hemisphere School advocates changing the traditional Bagua and Luopan solely on the basis of their understanding of local climatic Qi.
Some Southern Hemisphere School advocates assert that their argument for change rests on a variation of global surface temperature that results in a warm air band at the Equator and cold regions at the Poles.
Only in the Northern Hemisphere do permanent significant populations live with snow cover for many months of the year in conditions that create phrases like "the land of the Midnight Sun." The continents of the Southern Hemisphere are universally regarded as sunny and warm.

 Crux - The Southern Cross
If you live in the Southern hemisphere, or if you are vacationing in someplace like Hawaii, you can see a small but beautiful constellation with the shape of a cross.
If you live in the Northern Hemisphere, you must be south of latitude 30 degrees to begin observing Crux, one of the smallest, but most easily recognized constellations in the sky.
Crux was used by explorers of the southern hemisphere to point south since, unlike the north celestial pole, the south celestial pole is not marked by any bright star.

 Webopedia: Northern vs. Southern Hemisphere Monitors
The monitor you are using with your computer may be affected by which hemisphere of the earth you are in.
Monitors with cathode ray tubes, which are the majority of desktop monitors in use today, are manufactured specifically for which hemisphere they are going to be used in.
A monitor calibrated for the Northern hemisphere can still be used in the Southern hemisphere, but the colors and the image would be slightly skewed.

 The 1987 Southern Hemisphere supernova -- A sign of hope -- an Astrology and New Age analysis
The Southern Cross constellation used to be part of the feet of the nearby Centaur constellation; the Centaurs in mythology were part man, part horse.
This may be a clue to the Southern Cross's healing effect on the Southern Hemisphere, since Chiron, the most famous Centaur, was noted as a healer and for his wisdom.
Another sign of the Southern Cross influence is the thinning of the ozone layer near the South Pole-- the resulting increase in ultraviolet near the South Pole symbolizes the spiritual "light" of the Southern Cross.

 Southern hemisphere Feng Shui
Their point of view is that the orientation of the Ba Gua with South at top is due to the fact that China (where the Ba Gua originated from) is in the northern hemisphere and therefore faces the sun in the south.
Therefore all countries north of the Equator are in the Northern Hemisphere, while all countries south of the Equator are in the Southern Hemisphere.
In the UK in June, the northern hemisphere tilts towards the sun and it rises in the northeast, passes at its highest across the sky, and sets in the northwest.

 Learning the Stars Downunder
Here in the Southern Hemisphere the South Pole is practically invisible to the naked eye, and there are much better places from which to begin one's journey.
So, in the midsummer months of the Southern Hemisphere, after night has fallen and all the stars have appeared, you will first marvel at the very pronounced Milky Way, a broad band of slightly lighter sky stretching across the centre of the skies from south to north, packed with many brilliant stars.
Once identified, the Southern Cross can be used to locate the pivot point around which all stars orbit in the Southern Hemisphere, the South Pole.

 Blocking in the southern hemisphere
The subtropical ridge across the southern hemisphere sometimes builds into a poleward spreading high for a long period of time (typically 5 to 30 days), an event known as ‘blocking’ (Section 12.5).
Blocking is most frequent in summer, except near Australia, where it is most common in early winter, and it is least common in the southern hemisphere in late winter.
Blocking also occurs in the northern hemisphere, mainly in late winter and spring (unlike the south), and mainly over Great Britain (see North Atlantic Oscillation) and the west coast of North America, in both cases centered around 55ºN. References

 Southern Sky Binocular Club Introduction
If you are in the Southern Hemisphere for a Total Solar Eclipse, this would be an ideal time to do some deep sky observing with binoculars as well as observe the eclipse.
Over two hundred Southern Hemisphere deep sky objects were surveyed to come up with this list of seventy-three objects readily observable with 7x50 binoculars.
The reason for this is that many of us will only have limited access to the Southern Hemisphere, maybe only one or two visits in a lifetime, while, at the same time, we may not have control over the best time of the year to observe in the Southern Hemisphere.
