Summary

The part of the subject called "Meteorology ..." explains the basic processes in atmosphere, respectively. troposphere. It characterizes the conditions of individual monitoring meteorological elements such as temperature, relative humidity, cloudiness, precipitation, evaporation, wind. It statistically evaluates data collection and performs daily and annual analyzes selected meteorological elements. In the second part of the course "...... climatology" explains climate,geographical factors . It also explains the concepts of macro, mesoclimate and microclimate. Climate of the Czech Republic.
