Since 1979, it has been common practice, particularly in DIN 4710, to compile the basic data of outdoor-air temperature (t) and water vapour content (x) in the form of t-x correlations. Initially, the data from 1951 to 1970 served as the basis for West Germany. When the standard was revised in 2003, in cooperation with the DWD (German Meteorological Service), the data gathered at 15 stations between 1961 and 1990 were published. The concept for the compilation of the correlation tables of air temperature and water vapour content in air, the so-called t-x correlations, so far consisted in using the respective hourly values measured over the 30 years of the currently completed climate normal period, i. e. presently from 1961 to 1990. Since the end of the nineteen-eighties, the air temperature has kept rising. To give better consideration to the obvious climate change in the air-temperature regime when planning building services, the t-x correlations have been re-calculated, and published in this VDI guideline, for the 15-year period from 1991 to 2005, which corresponds to half of the current climate normal period.
