Why do places at low latitude have warm climate?
Relatively small variations in radiation balance during the year, and also due to the change in latitude, are typical for the radiation regime of inter-tropical latitudes. This is one of the reasons that the annual air temperature range is very low in these latitudes.
Which climate type is located at the highest latitudes?
Köppen’s type E climates are controlled by the polar and arctic air masses of high latitudes (60° N and S and higher). These climates are characterized by low temperatures and precipitation and by a surprisingly great diversity of subtypes.
What are the 3 major types of climates based on latitude?
The Earth has three main climate zones: tropical, temperate, and polar. The climate region near the equator with warm air masses is known as tropical.
Is low latitude hot or cold?
26. When we consider Latitude alone as a control, we know that the low latitudes (say from the Equator to approximately 30 degrees N/S) are the warmest across the year (on an annual basis).
Where are low latitude regions?
The Southern Hemisphere low latitudes are considered to be the areas of the earth south of the equator and north of about 30 degrees latitude.
