Abstract

The aim of this work is to study the climatology of atmospheric precipitation in the study area situated in north-eastern France. It is shown that the Vosges mountain range, due to its position almost perpendicular to the prevailing western airflow, affects the spatial and temporal distribution (and thus the seasonality) of precipitation at a regional scale. Three categories of stations were determined according to their annual precipitation distribution. Quantitative methods of ombric continentality demonstrate that the Vosges represent a limit between oceanic and a more continental climate. However, the empirical formulas are not satisfying and further research is required. - (EN)
