Abstract:

The purpose of the tables and figures presented is to depict the temperature and humidity regimes in the zone between 35 degrees N and 35 degrees S. This area comprises the tropics and the equatorward portion of the temperature regions of middle latitudes. In the tropics the most significant feature of the climate is that the daily range of temperature commonly exceeds the annual range. In middle and high latitudes the reverse situation prevails. For a description of the temperature and humidity regions in the tropics it is essential that data be available for every hour of the day. In the higher latitudes of the 35 degrees N to 35 degrees S zone there is a significant seasonal variation of temperature and humidity, particularly over continental areas.
