Abstract:

This paper describes two mathematical methods for predicting temperatures over a relatively large area when only a small amount of actual data is known. Known temperatures from a few locations are compared with the physical characteristics of these locations from data gathered from standard topographic maps. The topographic data for the unknown sites is then recorded and a prediction is made of these site using the data and temperatures from the known sites. The first method is a statistical regression analysis which can only be done with the aid of a large computer. The second method is a simplified version of the first which can be implemented on a smaller machine or by hand if necessary. Author
