    The atmospheric air of the Earth is a mixture of gases with the main components being: nitrogen, oxygen, argon and carbon dioxide. It further contains traces of the other inert gases helium, neon, krypton and xenon.

    Climate is the average weather usually taken over a 30-year time period for a particular region and time period. Climate is not the same as weather, but rather, it is the average pattern of weather for a particular region. Weather describes the short-term state of the atmosphere.
