The Climate and Bioclimate of Nevşehir from the Perspective of Tourism
Climate is an important resource for tourism and an equally important element that needs to be included in tourism purposes. This study reveals Nevşehir’s human-bioclimatological and tourism climatological conditions. These conditions were identified by using physiologically equivalent temperature and Climate-Tourism-Information-Scheme over 10-day periods and analyzing the mean thermal perception values that emerged. Evaluating bioclimatic conditions and meteorological parameters such as thermal bioclimate issues, duration of sunshine, number of wet days, amount of precipitation and wind, from the perspective of tourism will help people choose the best holiday times depending on their individual needs and circumstances.
