Climate and climate system, geographical and circulation forces of climate, basic terms of synoptic and dynamic climatology. The sources of meteorological data: traditional measurements and observations, teledetection techniques, synoptic charts. Prognostic numerical models. Baric systems, atmospheric fronts, air masses. Atmospheric circulation of various scales. Synoptic situations and synoptic types; selected classifications of circulation types for Poland: Litynski’s classification, Ouchowska-Klein’s classification, Niedźwiedź’s classification; Europa: Groswetterlagen, Ustrnul’s classification (exersise – relationships between precipitation and circulation types in the light of various classification of circulation types). The influence of circulation types on weather and climate elements. Circulation indices: NAO, AO, ENSO and regional indices. Teleconnections and circulation indices (exercise – relationships between selected circulation indices and both air temperature and precipitation in Poland). Long-term variability of circulation indices and their influence on climate elements. Synoptic and comprehensive climatology.
