Question and answer
the explanation of the scope of climatology
Climatology has a wide scope and it can be subdivided either on the basis of the topics emphasised or on the scale of the atmospheric phenomena that are emphasised. [ Ayoade (2004) identified the six topical subdivision of climatology among others as follows: 1. Regional climatology: It is the description of climates over selected areas of the earth. 2. Synoptic climatology: It is the study of
the weather and climate over an area in relation to the pattern of the pervading atmospheric circulation. Synoptic climatology is thus essentially a new approach to regional climatology. 3. Physical climatology: It involves investigating the behaviour of weather elements or processes in the atmosphere in terms of physical principles. Emphasis is on global energy and water balance regimes of the earth and the atmosphere. 4. Dynamic climatology: It places emphasis on the atmospheric motions on various scales, particularly the general circulation of the atmosphere. 5. Applied climatology: It is the application of climatological knowledge and principles to solving problems facing mankind. 6. Historical climatology: It is the study of the development of climate through time. ]
