Present-day urban climatology in Czechoslovakia

Jan Munzar

The paper present a concise history of 85 years of investigation in the field of urban climatology in Czechoslovakia. The history starts with the study on climatic conditions in Prague by Prof. Augustin (from 1895). The author is interested only in works treating of the meso- and microclimate on the basis of data collected from more observation points. So far, most careful studies of urban climatology have been carried out in Bratislava, the capital of the Slovak Socialist Republic with its 357 574 inhabitants.
