what are the branches of climatology?
Physical climatology seeks explanations of climatic phenomena through understanding of atmospheric processes, either with reference to large-scale transfer of heat, mass, and momentum (dynamic climatology), [ or in terms of observed climatic elements - solar radiation, temperature, humidity, cloudiness, precipitation, winds, and visibility (synoptic climatology). Descriptive climatology, or
climatography, analyzes observational data, often using statistical and cartographic techniques. Regional climatology, an extension of descriptive climatology, is concerned with the classification and mapping of different types of climate. Applied climatology uses the data and principles of physical and descriptive climatology to solve climate-related problems - in health, industry, agriculture, architecture, and so on. ]
