(Redirected from Topic:Climatology)

Climatology is a branch of atmospheric science as well as geographical and environmental science.


Climate is a dynamical system that is based upon the long term averages and behaviour of Earth's atmosphere both on the global scale and the regional scale. This topic aims to help your understanding of the basics of climate science as well as the many impactors climate has on the Earth as well as the impactors the Earth has on the climate.
