    The paper compares applicability of two sorts of "objective" classifications of weather types ("air masses", AMs) for evaluating elevated mortality due to heat in Seoul, South Korea: the "Temporal Synoptic Index" (TSI) and "Spatial Synoptic Classification" (SSC). We conclude that the TSI classifications are superior to SSC with respect to the coverage of days with large excess mortality by the oppressive AMs; their application in models that aim at predicting increased mortality risks should be compared with SSC before the decision on the method used is made.
