The science focused on analysis of the phenomena of the atmosphere receives the name of meteorology . The term comes from the Greek word meteorology.
It should be remembered that the atmosphere (or atmosphere) is the layer of gases that surrounds our planet and other celestial bodies. These gases are attracted and maintained in the area by the force of gravity.
The meteorology is responsible for studying various phenomena that take place in the atmospheric strata. The conditions of weather For example, they are part of its scope.
He Meteorological time , in this framework, is the atmospheric state . The calls weather stations they allow data to be collected and analyzed to make predictions, observing how the atmosphere interacts with various systems . Meteorology, thus, supports the climatology , which is oriented to the analysis of the average weather conditions over an extended period.
In short, the weather or weather , which is usually mentioned simply as weather , alludes to current state of the atmosphere and is studied by meteorology. He weather , on the other hand, is the set of the conditions of the atmosphere that are registered in a prolonged period and that are characteristic of a region. That is the object of study of the climatology .
Meteorology is responsible for weather forecasts . Thanks to the technology , meteorologists are able to anticipate with a certain level of precision what conditions the atmosphere will adopt in the short term, informing the population if there will be rainfall, what temperature is expected, etc.
