Climate

Term for the totality of all meteorological processes or possible weather conditions, including the typical sequence as well as the daily and seasonal fluctuations that are responsible for the average state of the earth's atmosphere at a particular location. The name (Greek climate = curvature) is derived from the curvature of the Earth's sphere and the resulting local differences in the angle of incidence of the sun. The climate is not only characterised by processes within the atmosphere, but rather by the interplay of all spheres of the earth (continents, oceans, atmosphere) and solar activity. Climate is one of the most important factors influencing viticulture.
