A Sinusoidal Temperature Model for Major Cities in Georgia

Main Article Content

Samuel Luogon Dolo Meagan Bridges Jessica Foster


One of the periodic natural phenomena in life is temperature patterns.  A mathematical model based on periodicity called a sinusoidal temperature model has been formulated to describe and estimate the maximum and minimum temperature characteristics for the major cities in Georgia. The four parameters in the proposed sinusoidal temperature model that are used to predict or estimate temperature patterns are based on a thirty-year monthly means of the maximum and minimum temperature of cities in Georgia obtained from weather.com.  The model shows a high level of accuracy in predicting maximum and minimum temperature for major cities in Georgia.
