A regression evaluation of thermal continentality

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



This paper considers climate continentality from the point of view of temperature. Primary indices, developed for climate continentality, are presented and compared and a proposal is made for a new index. The newly proposed index is based on daily temperature means and considers the influence of latitude in the Earth’s temperature distribution. The regression function was selected to best reflect the dependence of annual temperature mean on latitude. Several possible indices are evaluated. - (EN)
