Humanbioklimatische Gliederung der VR China. Eine Klimaklassifikation auf der Grundlage des Relative Strain-Indexes (Répartition humaine et bioclimatique en République Populaire de Chine. Une classification climatique basée sur un indice de contrainte relative)

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



In this paper a new physico-climatic classification based on the Relative Strain index (Lee and Henschel) is described. The index number indicates the degree of thermal strain for man under postulated climatic and physiological conditions. The equation integrates the variables air temperature, vapour pressure and air movement as well as the nonmeteorological factors metabolic rate and clothing. ... Then the classification is applied to the area of the People's Republic of China. - (l'A.)
