Geographia Polonica (1994) vol. 63, pp. 51-62 | Full text
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.
