Climatology (from Greek κλίμα, klima, "place, zone"; and -λογία, -logia) or climate science is the scientific study of climate, scientifically defined as weather conditions averaged over a period of time. This modern field of study is regarded as a branch of the atmospheric sciences and a subfield of physical geography, which is one of the Earth sciences. How to Cite. Eliasson, I. and Svensson, M. K.

This study examines the impact of three different urban green areas with various types of plant cover on human thermal comfort in the Bornova district by measuring some climatic parameters within the parks and their immediate surroundings/built-up areas in a typical hot summer month (July ).

Anthropogenic climate change is inherently a biometeorological issue. As such, it would be reasonably expected that the International Society of Biometeorology (ISB) and its journal, International Journal of Biometeorology (IJB), would have had climate change feature prominently in their activities, articles etc., and to therefore have made a substantial and valuable contribution to the.

One of the fundamental issues in human biometeorology is the assessment and forecast of the thermal environment in a sound, effective and practical way.

This is due to the need for human beings to balance their heat budget to a state very close to his/her thermal environment in order to optimise his/her comfort, performance and health. A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text.A literature is emerging, a vast one, on the subject of urban meteorology and climatology.

It dates back over years from descriptive to advanced modeling efforts. Luke Howard’s writings on London’s climate, composed in the 19th century, is republished by the International Association on Urban Climate’s Gerald Mills (Howard ) and.Climatology, the study of climate, is no longer regarded as a single discipline that treats climate as something that fluctuates only within the unchanging boundaries described by historical statistics.

The field has recognized that climate is something that changes continually under the influence of physical and biological forces and so, cannot be understood in isolation but rather, is one.
