Default Bioclimatic Map of Europe

Found another climate map of Europe which I hadn't seen before, so thought I'd post it here.

Neat map, but I don't understand what the two criteria are. Any clue what the columns Itc & Tp(1) are?

Took a bit of searching but I've found them!

3.1.2 Climatic classification

Ic: continentality index (yearly thermal interval), expresses the range between the average temperature of the warmest (Tmax) and the coldest (Tmin) months of the year. Ic =Tmax - Tmin.


- It: thermicity index, calculated as ten times the sum of the yearly average temperature (T), the average minimum temperature of the coldest month in the year (m) and the average maximum temperature of the coldest month in the year (M). It = (T+ m+ M)x10.


- Itc: compensated thermiticity index, calculated as It plus or minus a compensation value (C): Itc=It±C. This index can be considered to equal It if Ic lies between 9 and 18.


- Io: ombrothermic index, calculated as ten times the quotient resulting value between the yearly positive precipitation (Pp) and the yearly positive temperature (Tp). Io = 10x Pp /Tp.


- Tp: in the Bioclimatic belt the termotype must be calculated through Tp value when Ic is more or equal to 21 and Itc is less than 120.'

Tp: Yearly Positive Temperature. In tenths of degrees Celsius, sum of the monthly average temperature of those months whose average temperature is higher than 0ºC.

Great find! I never realized how small the Med climate area of France is.
