Article

Abstract

Maps showing the distribution of thermal sensations and bioclimatic regions over the earth in relation to human comfort are presented.This classification is based on the isolines of mean air enthalpy for January and July and on Brazol's sensation scale representing climatic types.

Keywords

Enthalpy Plant Physiology Thermal Sensation Environmental Medicine Climatic Type

Zusammenfassung

Karten der Verteilung des Wärmeempfindens und bioklimatischer Regionen der Erde in bezug auf menschliches Wohlbefinden werden angegeben.Die Klassifikation beruht auf den Isolinien der mittleren Luftenthalpie im Januar und Juli und auf der Empfindensskala nach Brazol.

Resume

On présente ici des cartes du monde sur lesquelles on a représenté la distribution de la sensibilité thermique ainsi que les régions bioclimatiques relatives au confort de l'homme. Cette classification est basée sur les isolignes de l'enthalpie moyenne de l'air en janvier et en juillet ainsi que sur l'échelle de sensation de Brazol représentant divers types de climats.
