Abstract:
In this thesis the writer has endeavoured to provide an analytical treatment of the many sets of climatic recordings available in official files and those obtained by the writer himself and volunteer helpers. From these basic data a series of generalisations regarding Aberdeen's climate have been made, ideas' which it is hoped will play a valid part in the world-wide search for the laws of urban climate. In attempting to fulfill this purpose detailed observations have been minimised in favour of a more model-based assessment of the urban climatic situation as provided by Aberdeen. The thesis comprises two volumes, the text and the illustrations, . both of which are required for a complete understanding of the study. In separating the two sections it is felt that cross- reference will be facilitated since certain maps pertain to more than one chapter. A folder at the rear of the second volume contains a street plan along with a map of relief and one of building use, the latter two to be used as background information for the numerous overlays included. The writer sets out to be consistent in the style of writing but readily acknowledges that certain inconsistencies exist, some purposely to assist the ease of reading, others mere oversights. The writer is not foolhardy enough to claim that all the intentions expressed in this preface have been fulfilled completely. Nevertheless, the thesis stands as an attempt to present a carefully reasoned study of the local climate of Aberdeen.
