synoptic climatology

synoptic climatology

[sə′näp·tik ‚klī·mə′täl·ə·jē]
(climatology)
The study and analysis of climate in terms of synoptic weather information, principally in the form of synoptic charts; the information thus obtained gives the climate (that is, average weather) of a given locality in a given synoptic situation rather than the usual climatic parameters which represent averages over all synoptic conditions.

The basic paradigm of synoptic climatology that the atmospheric circulation determines local meteorological conditions has been proved by numerous studies (Barry & Perry, 1973; Yarnal, 1993; Barry & Carleton, 2001).
