The Technoclimatologysupplies work implements to the Urban and Traffic Climatology, between anotherspecialties, centering her attention on the temperature and humidity distributivepatterns inside of the cities and on the surface winds circulation in urban areasand roads. The Meteorology supports very much her action on the phenologicalobservations which, in Federal Germany, are carried regularty through inapproximately 3.000 places, distributed in more or less uniform way through thewhole country. Those data and other properly climato - meteorological measuresare the base of researches on cultivation submissions and agricultural productivity in general. The Regional and Urban Planning, as far as she is concerned, utilizes information on air hygiene and climatic conditions which are obtained, from conventional instruments and through the remote sensing, specialty, the infrated termography.Thus, it is suggested the needs of an enlargement of the developed recordsand works by our Meteorological Services and their systematic employment bythe geographers, thinking pincipally on the participation of these professionalsin the development's programs.
