Abstract : The major concepts of space and time analysis of meteorological fields are discussed. A survey is made of the data on the time spectra of wind velocity, temperature, pressure, and turbulent fluxes of momentum and heat in intervals of seconds, months, and years. New data are presented describing the range of temperature fluctuations with periods from 1-2 minutes to several months. An explanation is proposed for the intertial interval in the synoptic region and for the minimum in the meso-meteorological region of the spectra. Problems, related to the concepts of climate and climatic variations, solar activity, and terrestrial weather are considered. (Author)
