Main content:

A bitmapped map containing mean annual dates of first morning frosts in autumn.

Classifier precision:

Mean annual dates of first morning frosts in autumn are represented as days - the number of days from the first day of the year. The isolines of the dates of first morning frosts in autumn on the original map are represented with 10 days' pitch.

Map compilation procedure:

The map has been compiled on the basis of the data obtained from the Map of the Average Datse of the End of the Frostless Period from the Climate Atlas of the USSR (Climate Atlas of the USSR, 1960). The maps were vectorized along the isolines of the dates of the end of the frostless period and rasterized with the interpolation technique.

Data sources:
