METEREOLOGY AND CLIMATOLOGY

By scribe Valdemir Mota de Menenzes

These two sciences are close, because the climate is the set of all weather data and meteorology is more used to forecast the variable of time in a given region.



Meteorology (from Greek meteors, which means high in the air, and logos, meaning study) is the science that studies the Earth's atmosphere, the weather, which can be defined as the state of the atmosphere at a given moment and place.
While the climatology is just one of the most tradicionaisda meteorology, which studies the weather, which has often been defined as a "mean time", ie a set of standard conditions that dominate a region, obtained from the average of observations through a certain time interval. However, variations and extreme weather are also important to characterize a region. For example, farmers are interested not only in knowing the average precipitation in November, but the frequency of extremely dry November. Similarly the management of water resources requires knowledge not only of average values​​, but also of extreme values ​​and their probability of occurrence. Therefore, the climate is the set of all statistical information about the weather in a certain location. In the long run is the climate that determines whether a region is or is not habitable and its natural vegetation, within a shorter period is the time that determines the safety of transport means, the form of leisure, the dispersion of pollutants and activities agriculture.
