Inspired by the Subhumans of New York  Tumblr page, Atmospherics , also known as Atmospheric Collections or Atmospheric Information, is the gathering of information to understand "the complex cultural and political makeup of the region". With respect to the Global War on Terror, or Overseas Contingency Operations, it is a method used in intelligence circles to acquire " broad information about the political and tribal dynamics in the region". Some policymakers deem such information necessary to assess wants and needs of potential allies. The difference between Atmospherics and Intelligence is, the later is concerned with specific threats such as the targeting of adversaries or the insertion of agents into enemy organizations to determine potential intent.

In the case of "The Strain", we are interested in tracking the general sentiment of the citizens of New York in the days leading up to the Occultation, and  the subsequent Downfall of New York.
