FIGURE 7.6 A climograph shows average monthly temperature (red curve) and rainfall (bars). The horizontal lines at 0°C (32°F), 10°C (50°F), 18°C (64.4°F), and 22°C (71.6°F) are temperature parameters by which Köppen climates are classified.

What specific information can you read from the graph to classify Nashville’s climate as humid subtropical in the Köppen system?

To determine

The specific information obtained from the graph to classify Nashville’s climate as humid subtropical in the Köppen system.

Explanation

A Humid Subtropical climates has warmest month above 10°C and coldest month between 18°C and 0°C. It is represented by Cfa in Köppen classification. The summers are hot and have a year-round precipitation ranging from 63 to 250 cm. It has winter drought (Asia). The Humid Subtropical climates are concentrated on East coast location between 20° and 40°N and S latitudes. The controlling factors are humid onshore (monsoonal) air movement in summer, cyclonic storms in winter.

The Nashville is the capital of the Tennessee state of United States, which is located at 36°N latitude and 88°W longitude. The average annual precipitation rates is 119.6 cm (47.1 in.) and average annual temperature range is 15.2°C (59.5°F).

A climograph is used to identify the Köppen classification of a location and to demonstrate its specific rainfall and temperature regimes
