This paper examines the relationship among climate, weather, and tourism from the perspective of the geography of tourism and climatology. It analyzes the nature of the influence that climate has on tourism and recreation, stressing the need to improve upon the simplistic descriptions traditionally reported in planning projects, which are often unconnected to the requirements of tourism, and revealing the links that atmospheric elements maintain with different facets of this industry. Specifically, the paper considers the influence that climate and weather exert on the geographical space, demand, supply, and market agents of the tourism system. It also shows the significance of this relationship in the context of climate change. © 2005 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
