a)

To determine

The classification of climate station “A” from the data provided.

Explanation
  • According to the given table, the site “A” does not have an E climate because it has several months averaging above 10°C.
  • The site “A” is located in the northern hemisphere as the summer months fall from April to September.
  • Precipitation in the driest winter months (June and August with precipitation) is less than one-tenth the precipitation of the wettest summer month (July with precipitation 1.1cm) and climate classification in site “A” can be considered as a dry winter and can be represented using letter w. The letter w denotes “winter”. It can be calculated as follows:

PrecipitationinJune and August=0.0cmPrecipitationinJuly=1.1cm110(1
