“The problem of climatic impact on the various aspects of human activity has been attracting increasing attention all over the world in recent years on the part of the public as well as governments and their planning bodies. International organizations and various scientific bodies are also giving this problem more and more attention. […]
For the first time in world climatic mapping practice, detailed isoline maps are being presented for the mountainous area in the Asian region, which is the dominant form of underlying surface here. […]
It is hoped that the contents of this Atlas will be of use to the countries in Asia, in particular, to those which have not yet prepared their national climatic maps, as these countries may use the regional climatic maps temperature and precipitation as a basis to meet some of their national requirements.” (From the Foreword)
