Abstract

The thermal bioclimate is described here through the Physiologically Equivalent Temperature (PET). PET is a thermal index, which is based on the energy balance of the human body. It describes the effect of the thermal environment on humans. In this study, maps were created that show the geographical distribution of PET values in January and July for the area of Hungary. For the further analysis of the thermal bioclimate, data of the synoptical network for Szombathely station, recorded from 1996 to 2000 has been used. The produced maps and data can be used for various approaches in applied climatology i.e. tourism or detection of extreme biometeorological events and areas.
