Javier Martínez de Orueta will guide us through these sessions, where we will see how the atmosphere works and what role it has over our climate and our lives. Does climate and time have the same meaning? What is the application of cloud observation in people’s daily lives? How are storms generated and developed? What are its consequences? Are there other adverse weather events? In the weather forecast we see maps that seem difficult to interpret; We will learn certain keys to be able to interpret them. How is the climate of Asturias and León? Can this influence the distribution of vegetation? Meteorology may seem like a difficult science, but throughout this cycle we will learn basic concepts to make it available for everyone.
