YAN Y.Y. ;


The clo index, which indicates the amount of clothing required to maintain comfort, is used to evaluate the human thermal climates in China. Daily clo values for 200 stations were computed using daily air temperature, wind speed, and cloud-cover data from 1960 to 1998, and they were reduced and grouped into seasonal values. Results of this study provide useful information on human thermal comfort, energy requirements, and tourist industry development
