Climatology 1960 – Real World Information

Climatology 1960 – Real World Information

Climatologists in 1960 produced an extremely fine vintage of climate information.

Climatologists in 1960 lived in the real world of natural variability where the weather changed [on a daily basis and from location to location] and where the repeating patterns of weather [climate] slowly evolved over years and decades.

Climatologists in 1960 compiled weather statistics based upon a 30 year history of the weather because these 30 year statistics provided fairly reliable boundaries within which predictions could be made for the coming days, weeks and the following year.

Climatologists in 1960 knew that a 30 year history of precipitation, high temperatures and low temperatures [in a specific location] provided a good guide to the coming year [in that location].

Climatologists in 1960 knew the weather controlled vegetation and influenced human settlements.

Vegetation and Population

Climatologists in 1960 were concerned about real world boundaries like the northern limit for olive trees.
