Study and Analysis of Meteorological Effect on Shanghai Sheshan National Tourist Resorts in Shanghai
Abstract: In this paper, the main meteorological disasters in the Sheshan National Tourist and Vacation Areas are analyzed by using the climate data from 1955 to 2014, such as average temperature, relative humidity, wind speed, insolation duration. The influences of meteorological parameters on this area are studied with the climate comfort evaluation and meteorological disaster climate trend. It is found that the major meteorological disasters in this area including fog, typhoon, storm, wind, thunderstorms and high temperature, were occurred in different periods with higher frequency from May to October. Nineteen comfortable ten-day periods in a year are suitable for tourist activities, during March and May, late September and the end of December. And seventeen ten-day periods in a year are not suitable for tourist activities, from January to February and from June to the middle of September. Some suggestions for tourism weather service on the basis of these results are listed in the conclusion.
