The meteorotropic reaction of the human organism is a function of different factors, such as the type and intensity of the effects of the physical environment as well as individual conditions like adaptive capacity and state of health.
Many medical-meteorological studies show causal correlations between conditions in the lower atmosphere and reactions of the human organism, but also combined or synergistic effects of different weather situations, which can only be proved stochastically.
These effects are described and the methodology of the investigations, as well as the results, critically discussed.
Furthermore, application of the results in the areas of medical-meteorological consultation, with the goal of improving living conditions, is considered.
