climograph

climograph A two-dimensional, graphical representation of one major climatic element against another, e.g. rainfall against temperature. Typically, the average values for each month are plotted, and the points joined together sequentially to give a dodecagon of a shape that is characteristic for a particular area. This forms an easily prepared basis for quick visual comparison of the climates of different areas. Uses include the assessment of the suitability of a new environment for a proposed species introduction.
