Plain Language Summary: This study classified the climate from temperate to polar regions based on dynamic climatology using objective frontal data at mid- and high latitudes created by a thermal-based method with θe. The unique features of our method for frontal data creation included adding conditions for the geopotential height at 500-hPa and incorporating latitude-dependent parameters. Moreover, the behavior of the frontal zone was also shown, including interannual variations due to various phenomena affecting global climate and long-term trends for 42 years from 1979 to 2020.
