Decent Essays
Brazil also has five climatic regions that coordinate with specific geographical configurations. Climate is influenced by temperature, humidity, and atmospheric pressure. These factors led to a classification system for Brazil’s climates. The first two types that will be discussed are equatorial and tropical (“The Weather and Climate in Brazil”). The equatorial climate is present in Northern and Central Brazil. An equatorial climate contains rainforests due to humidity and precipitation (“The Weather and Climate in Brazil”). There is also no winter season or dry period because rainfall is frequent (“The Weather and Climate in Brazil”). Temperatures reach a high of 33ºC and an average of 25 to 28ºC (“The Weather and Climate in Brazil”). Brazil’s tropical climate can be found in the central area and along the coast in the middle-north. Temperatures remain consistent throughout the year; however, the amount of rain varies as the seasons change (“The Weather and Climate in Brazil”). To qualify as a tropical climate, the “area must have an average temperature of over 18 degrees Celsius” (“The Weather and Climate in Brazil”). Furthermore, the last three types of climates in Brazil are semi-arid, oceanic, and sub-tropical (“The Weather and Climate in Brazil”). The semi-arid environment resides in northeast Brazil. The climate can be described as “in between a desert and humid forest” range (“The Weather and Climate in Brazil”). Shrubs and grasses are common, while trees are not.
