Climate and weather

Air temperature is generally understood to mean the outside temperature of the near-ground atmosphere, which is neither influenced by solar radiation nor by floor heat. In meteorology, this is measured at a height of two meters. This varies during the day and during the seasons and is influenced by climate fluctuations. The temperature is one of the important criteria for the climate classification or division into the large-scale climate areas or macro-climates (large climates) of the earth.
