Mollison explains specific techniques for design and management of systems in the Designer’s Manual in 3 chapters: Humid tropics, temperate, and drylands. The first two are based on temperature while the final one is based on precipitation. Tropical precipitation is primarily convective. In the more humid tropical regions, annual rainfall is often above mm and falls in almost all months of the year. In the drier tropics, rainfall can fall below 50 mm, and be very seasonal. The remainder of the region lies between these precipitation regimes, with distinct wet and dry seasons.

The long-term ecological, agricultural and socio-economic changes in a typical rural area of the humid tropics of South-East Asia under conditions of increasing population density are investigated, using the case of the district of Pasaman, West Sumatra, Indonesia.

A spatial database was developed to document changes in land cover and land use through a year : T. Brauns. About 45 percent of the world's humid tropics are found in the Americas (essentially Latin America), 30 percent in Africa, and 25 percent in Asia.

Small portions of the humid tropics can be found in other areas such as Hawaii and portions of the northeastern coast of Australia. Get this from a library. Land clearing in the humid tropics: based on experience in the conversion of tropical moist forests in South East Asia.

The design, construction and use of buildings in tropical climates pose specific challenges to built environment professionals.

This text seeks to capture some of the key issues of technology and practice in the areas of building design, refurbishment, construction and facilities management in tropical regions. Using a consistent chapter structure throughout, and incorporating the latest.

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 can actually be divided into three major zones on the basis of climate: wet zones, the humid tropics, often characterized as hot wetlands (Douglas, ) usually.

In the future, climate change will challenge food security by threatening crop production. Humid subtropical regions play an important role in global food security, with crop rotations often including wheat (winter crop) and soybean and maize (summer crops). Over the last 30 years, the humid subtropics in the Northern Hemisphere have experienced a stronger warming trend than in the Southern.
