more direct heating Results in some areas being colder and some being warmer

Climate zones based on temperature and precipitation Climatograph

A climatograph shows the monthly average temperature and precipitation for a particular area

Climate Classification Koppen classification system Based on vegetation and average monthly

precipitation and temperature Tropical Climates Tropical climates have constant high

temperatures Some has up to 600 cm of rain each year Tropical rain forests vegetation mT air masses South America, Indonesia

Dry Climates Dry climates cover 30% of Earths land Influenced by cT air masses Scarce vegetation High temperatures, low moisture

Sahara Desert Mild Climates Mild climates generally do not have a huge

temperature difference between their cold months and warm months Winters are generally warmer Summers are generally cooler Southeastern United States Italy

Continental Climates Continental climates are relatively dry with hot summers and cold winters

Away from bodies of water Central parts of Asia Canada Polar Climates
