The climate of a natural region of small extent, for example, valley, forest, plantation, and park. Because of subtle differences in elevation and exposure, the climate may not be representative of the general climate of the region.
The climate of an area ranging in size from a few acres to several square kilometers.
An area of locally moderated climate somewhat larger than a microclimate, such as within a large city.
a climate within a small district or within a vineyard.
The climate of small area of the earthâ€™s surface which may not be representative of the general climate of the district. These include small valleys, frost hollows, forest clearings, and open spaces in towns, all of which may have extremes in temperature differing by many degrees from those of adjacent areas.
The climate of a vineyard site, hillside or valley. The term "microclimate" is used in its place extremely often. Microclimate correctly refers to the climate immediately surrounding the individual vine canopy (or green growth) and clusters. Vineyard and canopy management will strongly influence the microclimate, but not the mesoclimate. The mesoclimate belongs to Mother Nature.
A term of climate scale that is intermediate between regional climate (Macroclimate) and the very small scale (Microclimate).
the climate of a small area of the earth's surface which may differ from the general climate of the district
This term describes the climate of a small area, typically an individual vineyard or hillside. Related terms include macroclimate and microclimate.
The climate that is peculiar to a small natural feature such as a hill or a small lake. This climate tends to be different from the general climate of the region in predictable ways. Statements such as "it always rains more in Hunter's Glen in the spring" or "it snows more at the airport than downtown" are statements about mesoclimates.
This term refers to the distinct climatic conditions of a specific area, from tens to hundreds of metres (or yards) across. This is usually the correct term to use in reference to the conditions affecting a vineyard or potential vine-growing site, though microclimate is frequently and erroneously used.
