"The study is based on the two season approach developed by Mr Crowe. The year is divided into a winter or snow cover season and a summer season. The latter comprises the warm, 'highsummer' season together with the cooler periods in spring and autumn. The first part of the study examines these seasons in detail and includes average dates and durations for these seasons. The ssecond part examines those elements of climate whihc affect tourism and outdoor recreation. These include temperature, wind, sunshine, precipitation, fog, water temperatures, andhumidity, with special regard for their effect on human comfort and conven ience. Heating requirements for tourist accomodation are also discussed. Inthe final part, this climatological information is combined in the concept of 'suitable days'. This is a method of showing the percentage of time thr oughout the year when weather conditions are suitable for each of several general categories of outdoor activities." - from the summary.
