The International Association of Climatology (Association
Infernationale de Climafologie-AIC) has as its target the development of relationships among climatologists by :
(i) promoting the exchange of information concerning
climatic studies;
(ii) common scientific activities of its members;
(iii) organization of conferences and colloquiums;
(iv) publication of scientific studies.
This association, the official language of which is French,
recently published Volumes 6 and 7 containing many studies
in climatology.
Volume 6 includes 73 articles presented at the annual
colloquium held in Thessaloniki in September 1993. This
volume is divided into seven parts. The main topic is
‘Drought in the Mediterranean and the Surrounding
Countries’, with examples from North Afnca, south-western
Europe, the Balkans and the Middle East. Other subjects
included in this volume are :climate evolution and climatic
changes with some examples of changes in the precipitation
regime in the Balkans, and in Spain and France (part two),
pluviometric studies and precipitation in the Mediterranean,
mainly in Greece and Spain (part three), mid-latitude
climatology (part four), tropical climatology with examples
from Senegal and Benin (part five), local and topoclimatology, pollution and bio-climatology with some
studies dealing with the ozone issue or fog in urban regions

(part six), statistics, information, automatic networks and
modelling (part seven).
Volume 7 includes 65 articles presented at the annual
colloquium held in Toulouse in September 1994. This
volume, also divided into seven parts, covers many issues in
climatology. The first part contains mainly communications
on methodology and techniques, including some aspects of
applied climatology and new techniques in tropical
climatology. The second part deals with the interaction
between climate, soil and vegetation, with some studies
carried out in Portugal and Italy, as well as some aspects of
bio-climatology in Poland. Part three deals with different
aspects of the climate in the Mediterranean and Maghreb
regions. In part four one can find articles dealing with
temporal variation of the climate in Mali, Portugal, Canada,
and so on. The fifth part deals with some exceptional
features of the temperate climates, such as hail, snow, fog,
frost and intense rainfall. The sixth part addresses issues of
rainfall variability in tropical regions, and finally the last part
deals with topo-climatology, mainly in regions of pronounced relief such as the Alps or the Rhine.
All articles in both volumes, were subject to a peer
review, are nicely presented and are carefully edited by
Professor Panagiotis Maheras from the Aristotelian
University of Thessaloniki, Greece. These two volumes
should be regarded as reference books in climatology, rather
than proceedings.
