Meteorology (from Greek (meteoron): 'high in the sky', meteor, and (logos): 'knowledge, tried') is the interdisciplinary science, essentially a branch of Atmospheric Physics, who studies the weather , ambient air, locally produced phenomena and laws that govern it.

Remember that the Earth consists of three main parts: a part exit called lithosphere, in good proportion covered by water (called hydrosphere) and two third layer enveloped by a gaseous atmosphere. These interrelated producing profound changes in their characteristics. The science that studies these features, properties and the movements of the three fundamental layers of the Earth, Geophysics. In that sense, meteorology is a branch of geophysics which aims detailed study of the gaseous envelope of the earth and its phenomena.

One must distinguish between current conditions and its evolution called weather, and the average conditions over a long period is known as local climate or region.

By studying the phenomena occurring in the atmosphere is defined weather climate, forecast the weather, understanding the interaction of the atmosphere with other subsystems, etc.. Knowledge of climate variability has always been of utmost importance for the development of agriculture, navigation, military operations and life in general.
