The landforms of the humid tropics The tropical zone, between the Tropic of Cancer (°N) and the Tropic of Capricorn (°S), covering about a third of the Earth's land surface, is often thought of as dense, humid forest frequently incorrectly termed jungle, but The landforms of the humid tropics actually be divided into three major zones on the basis of climate: wet zones, the humid tropics, often characterized as hot wetlands (Douglas, ) usually nearer the.

Humid landforms. Landforms created by running water dominate the land surface of earth. However, although the role of water is seen everywhere, it is seen at its best in those regions where the climates are wet enough to support a forest vegetation with a continuous canopy.

The more specialized climatic geomorphology of the humid tropical forests and savannas be- gins with an outline of climatic variables, weathering processes, and major environmental subdivisions. Tricart discusses how worldwide processes, such as fluvial and littoral agencies, are modified in tropical environments.

author takes the humid tropics as the most characteristic case of landform evolution through water erosion and deposition and treats humid temperate lands, previously accepted as the ‘normal’ pattern of landform evolution, as a variation of the situation in the humid tropics. The book emphasises the basic principles of chemical, physical andFile Size: 9MB.

Climatically, the tropics are generally defined by year-round warmth and high humidity. The book highlights three areas: • Geology, landforms and geomorphic processes in the humid and arid tropics • Source-to-sink passage of water and sediment from the mountains to the sea • Anthropogenic alteration of natural geomorphic rates and processes, including climate Size: KB.

ZEEGERS and P. LECOMTE INTRODUCTION Savanna climates are tropical climates having an annual rainfall ranging between and mm and well-contrasted dry and wet by: Rainforest, luxuriant forest, generally composed of tall, broad-leaved trees and usually found in wet tropical uplands and lowlands around the Equator.

Rainforests usually occur in regions where there is a high annual rainfall of generally more than 1, mm (70 inches) and a hot and steamy climate. This climate is also called as Sudan type of climate.

Savanna type of climate is located between 5°° latitudes on either side of the equator (fig. Thus, savanna climate is located between equatorial type of climate (Af) and semi-arid and subtropical humid climate.

TOPICSUMMARY Forest clearance in the tropics will continue in order to satisfy the demands of the growing population. All nutrient cycles involve interaction between soil and the atmosphere and involve many food chains.

Savannas are areas of tropical grasslands that can occur with or without trees and shrub. Savannas cover about one-quarter of. Tropical and subtropical moist broadleaf forests Generally found in large, discontinuous patches centered on the equatorial belt and between the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn, Tropical and Subtropical Moist Forests (TSMF) are characterized by low variability in annual temperature and high levels of rainfall (> centimeter annually).

The zone, a transitional climatic region separating tropical desert from humid sub-tropical savanna and forests, experiences temperatures that are less extreme than those of the desert. Average annual rainfall is – millimetres (– in), but is very unreliable; as in much of the rest of India, the southwest monsoon accounts for.

Tropical and subtropical grasslands, savannas, and shrublands is a terrestrial habitat type defined by the World Wide Fund for Nature.

The biome is dominated by grass and/or shrubs located in semi-arid to semi- humid climate regions of subtropical and tropical latitudes. Learn and landforms regions climate with free interactive flashcards. Choose from different sets of and landforms regions climate flashcards on Quizlet.

Tropical rain forests primarily exist in South America, Africa and southeast Asia. The forests contain more than 15 million species of plants and animals that rely on the hot, humid biome in order. Savannas are frequently in a transitional zone between forest and desert or prairie.

Savanna covers 20% of the Earth's land area. The largest area of savanna is in Africa. Faniran, A. and L. Jeje. Humid Tropical Geomorphology: A study of the geomorphological processes and landforms in warm humid climates.

A distinctive feature of uncleared rain forest tracts in the Queensland humid tropics is the occurrence of physiognomically abrupt boundaries between rain forest and eucalypt-dominated vegetation (Unwin ; Harrington and Sanderson ).A tall open forest formation dominated by tall (>40 m) eucalypts (e.g., Eucalyptus grandis and E.

is diverse and complex (Wilson and Peters, ; Myers, ), and occupies about 10% of the worlds land area. Distribution of different types of vegetation within the humid tropics is described in the report by the Forest Resource Assessment Project (FAO, ).

Tropical Rain Forest Climate The average year's climate is very humid. The rain forests receives a lot of rainfall because of its moist and hot temperature. This type of climate is found near the equator, meaning that the direct sunlight hits the land and sea more than anywhere else.
