Climatologists study climate conditions averaged over a period of time. They use climate models for a variety of purposes, from the study of dynamics of the weather and climate system to projections of future climate. In contrast to meteorology, which focuses on short term weather systems lasting up to a few weeks, climatology studies the frequency and trends of those systems. Climatology considers the past and can help predict future climate change.
