Basic contents:

Raster map contains dates of average daily temperature transition of 15° C for period of temperature decline.

Accuracy of classifier:

Transition dates expressed as number of days from beginning of year.

Method of map production:

Layer calculations based on average monthly air temperatures (Afonin, A.N., Lipiyaynen, K.L., Tsepelev, V.Y., 2006). The calculation follows the general procedure (Losev, А.P., 1994) in the Idrisi program resorting to macro programming. "0" stands for the absence of the transition date. "-100" marks the pixels outside the Atlas.
