Question about climates

I assume that the rainfall amounts are annual amounts. But what does the temperature represent? Average temp, min, max?

    Are you talking about FT3+?

    The climate types in FT are based on annual averages. FT calculates rainfall and temperature at 4 points in the orbit and generates an average from those values. It then adds any editing values from the appropriate channel and uses the final average rainfall and temperature as indices for a two-dimensional table of climate types.

  • FT3+, yes. I looked through various posts on climate on the forum and didn't find anything specific. I knew that FT3 uses a kind of Whittaker table for climates/biomes, but wasn't sure if the temperatures were annual averages or something else.

    Appreciate the help as always.
