- What is the Microclimate? What does Microclimate mean?
- Microclimate (micro-climate) refers to the climate of the floor about 2 meters high, or the climate in a distinct and small area (for example between buildings in a city). Microclimate is a small climate area that separates from the surrounding macro-macro features. Small-area climate, micro climate can be called. Microclimatology studies microclimate. Microclimatology is important for plant breeding, animal husbandry, forestry and farming.
- The comparison between the valley and the hill, the city and the surrounding climates is the topic of microclimate. The examination area can be selected even narrower. One side and the other side of the forest can be examined, the side to be driven and the side to which it is not driven.
- In the agricultural microclimate, the area to which a crop can grow is examined. For example, wheat farming is based on field width and climate of one meter high area.
- Scientifically, even though the microklima area covers an area of several meters in width and height, broader criteria are used in everyday use.
- A distinctive climate can become localized due to erosion of the windsurface near the ground, weak air currents, large temperature changes, ground type, vegetation and so on. Microclimate is especially important for rare plants, because these plants are very sensitive to climate change.
- Microclimate is important not only for plants but also for humans. In particular, architects need to consider microclimate in the selection of building materials.
