My most vital contribution as a geographer, alongside the second one half the 20 th century, no doubt used to be directed in the direction of Climatology. till then, normally referred to as “Elements of Meteorology", the weather learn within Geography was once extra hooked up with the quantification of atmospheric parts with no the required genetic qualification and the behaviour dynamic of strategies.
Against basic technique, I observed myself looking for a conceptual revision and a revision of behaviour practices (dynamics), then initiated by way of the Polar entrance idea (1917). Slowly yet definitely, I elaborated a sequence of articles, booklet chapters, didactic advices geared in the direction of highschool teachings, until eventually i began operating with certain tasks, thesis and theoretical ponderings in hopes of manufacturing a brand new paradigm that left in the back of the static box, specific of the mathematics suggest, in the direction of the rhythmic dynamic.
At this element in my existence, having handed 80 years of age, i've got referred to as in this book's co-authors in hopes of discussing a suggestion on the right way to “distribute” one other paintings which up to now has taken many years to arrive a greater perform, insofar because it having been built over a century ago.
I desire that the present efforts of distribution supply a few merits for the Geography scholars and the recently-graduated Geographers, and that, in another country, it manages to obtain a few realization as ability to indicate that, within the southern hemisphere, in Latin the USA, and extra particularly in Brazil – which has grown, and keeps to develop, culturally and economically – we're capable, additionally, to supply feedback during this particular sector.
