Abstract

The study area is located between 36 degrees to 42 degrees N and 26 degrees to 45 degrees E. In this study, we have used the data that has been provided by the Turkish State Meteorological Service (TSMS), including the daily minimum, maximum, and average temperatures that were recorded at 156 meteorological stations. Daily data are converted into monthly and seasonal data to explain the descriptive statistics during winter and summer. Datasets that are used to determine temperature extremities comprise daily and original data.
