Abstract:

Climate-related treatment is one form of therapy at health resorts that bases itself around the use of natural climatic attributes. In the light of this, the aim of the present studies has been to analyse the bioclimatic conditions at different Polish health resorts, with a view to the available curative resources of the climate being determined, along with the opportunities for the different forms of climatotherapy to be taken advantage of.

Keywords: bioclimate, climatotherapy, health resorts, Poland

Abstract:

The study presents the results of bioclimatic investigations carried out in Department of Climatology of the Institute of Geography and Spatial Organization of the Polish Academy of Sciences. The aims of this research involve evaluation and regionalization of a bioclimate of Poland in different spatial scales from the point of view of climatotherapeutical and recreational potential as well as work under an open air. Bioclimatic weather classification and human heat balance method were used in this study.

Keywords: bioclimatic mapping, weather classsifications, human heat balance
