Abstract:

Use was made of the longest-existing series of air temperature observations from Central Europe, specifically those for Warsaw, Kraków, Prague and Vienna. It was, above all, the course of mean annual values for air temperature that was analyzed, thus allowing this study to serve also as a basis for further, more precise studies including the variability and cyclicity of air temperature values in particular months. The application and attempted interpretation of periodograms drawn up on the basis of data for January, April, July and October has confirmed the above opinion. In general, considerable concurrence in the courses of mean air temperature values at the selected stations may be noted, and hence the influence of the same circulation mechanisms shaping air temperature over a large area during the two centuries.

Abstract:

The multi-annual variability of thermal, solar and cloudiness conditions in Cracow was examined from the point of view of the impact of natural and anthropogenic factors on the climate change. The analysis concerned the annual air temperature range (RAT) and daily ranges of air temperature (DAT) in January and July. Special attention has been paid to the climatic trends and changes of climatic continuity. Long-term changes of RAT reflect the impact of the circulation factors, these of DAT are influenced by the urbanisation.

Abstract:

Climatic changes in Southern Poland, including the Carpathian Mountains are shown in regional and local scale. There are discussed: changeability of the circulation indices during the winter season and fluctuations of the air temperatures based on the instrumental observations in the mountain stations. The influence of climate is referred to the secular changes in the width of tree rings in Tatra Mountains and the thermal feelings of human body. Local changes of the radiation inflows are characteristic features of developing urbanization.

Keywords: climate change, circulation indices, air temperature, sunshine duration, precipitation, long-term instrumental observations, Carpathian Mountains, dendroclimatologi-cal data, thermal sensibility of human body, transparence of atmosphere
