  Climatology - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Climatology is the study of climate, and is a branch of the atmospheric sciences.
Climatology considers both past and potential future climate change.
Phenomena of climatological interest include the atmospheric boundary layer, circulation patterns, heat transfer (radiative, convective and latent), interactions between the atmosphere and the oceans and land surface (particularly vegetation, land use and topography), and the chemical and physical composition of the atmosphere.

 Other Forecasting Methods: climatology, analogue and numerical weather prediction
For example, if you were using the climatology method to predict the weather for New York City on July 4th, you would go through all the weather data that has been recorded for every July 4th and take an average.
The climatology method only works well when the weather pattern is similar to that expected for the chosen time of year.
In addition, the beginning forecaster does not have the knowledge to interpret the computer forecast, so the simpler forecasting methods, such as the trends or analogue method, are recommended for the beginner.

The climatologies were created using daily averaged SST over monthly and pentad periods for 1985-1997 at 9.28km resolution.
This climatology has been tested against other SST climatologies using the method described in Casey and Cornillon (1999).
The Monthly Pathfinder+Erosion SST climatology is essentially as good as the Pentad Pathfinder+Erosion SST climatology, but for some applications there may be a concern that using only monthly SST values could introduce a bias since a monthly mean will always be lower (higher) than the maximum (minimum) SST in the annual cycle.
