Abstract

The climatic description of the Carpathian Basin's typically transitional climate is approached through the concept of 'climatic year types' for the years 1891-1990. With the help of the frequency of annual precipitation curve types, characteristic of the individual climates, major climate fluctuations are detected. An undoubted trend is the increasing frequency of 'steppe years', ie definite aridification. European-Continental and Pontic-Mediterranean precipitation curve types spread at the expense of the Atlantic-Submediterranean types in the second half of this century. The growing frequency of Koppen's class C climate indicates amelioration.
