Abstract:

Based on the features of records in historical documents and characteristics of winter climate in South China from 1710 to 2009 and the method for reconstructing the winter cold index, four levels of the winter cold index were identified according to districts for events of frost, snow and freezing, they are level 1 for cool, level 2 for cold, level 3 for very cold, and level 4 for specially cold. The result indicated that there are 145 years of the 300 years were in cold (48.33% of total), 98 years in very cold (32.67% of total), 50 years in cool (16.67% of total) and 7 years only in specially cold (2.33% of total).
