General Climatology 1C: Classification of Climates
This volume provides a comprehensive discussion of climate classification as designed over the last 2000 years. Included are systems which are virtually unknown in English literature. The principle sections are ordered by a sequence in years, and subsections demonstrate the goals of the numerous authors to treat the classification task from the aspect of an empirical, applied, or genetic system.
