Abstract : The largest-scale dynamic processes which envelop regions commensurable with the dimensions of our entire planet are investigated during the study of the overall circulation of the atmosphere using the theory of climate and long-range weather forecasting. In this case it is often advantageous to not individually examine disturbances of normal synoptic scale which determine the weather at an isolated point at a given moment. Weather, which is individually studied on ordinary synoptic charts, is changed into the elements of the 'macroturbulence of the atmosphere' during statistical examination, where the basic emphasis is on the study of the regularities of atmospheric circulation on a global scale for long periods of time.
