  • Delineation of boundary between tropical/subtropical in the middle section for eco-geographic system of South China
  • China ; Climatic index ; Concept ; Ecosystem ; Geosystem ; Soil ; Southern China ; Subtropical zone ; Tropical zone ; Vegetation index ; Zonal geography
  • . New concepts of tropical, annual tropical, true tropical and tropical fluctuating zone are formed to understand tropical area. Based on the indexes of climate, vegetation and soil, boundaries of tropical, annual tropical, true tropical and tropical
  • fluctuating zone of the study area are established. The tropical fluctuating zone explains different locating of different researchers. This paper also puts forward a new method to display boundary for eco-geographic regions.

  • China ; Climatic zone ; Flood ; Hydrology ; Pic discharge ; Precipitation ; Rainstorm ; Seasonal variation ; Spatial distribution ; Tropical cyclone
  • Regional distribution of the rainstorms and floods caused and affected by tropical cyclones are described and the geographical divisions of China are also given in this paper. The hydrological characteristics of tropical cyclone rainstorms
  • and floods are discussed and compared with that on non-tropical cyclones.
  • The changing geomorphology of the humid tropics
  • Flood ; Fluvial processes ; Geochemistry ; Geomorphology ; Global change ; Human impact ; Precipitation ; Slope dynamics ; Soil erosion ; Tropical rain forest ; Tropical zone ; Weather type
  • It is debatable whether tropical geomorphology is intrinsically different from the geomorphology of other places. This paper primarily examines the research themes of the last ten years or so, identifies the major trends, and attempts to predict
  • areas where interest is expected to concentrate in near future. The following topics among the current research trends are highlighted : geochemical erosion, movement on tropical slopes, rivers in the tropics, tropical landforms, hydrology
  • and sedimentation in the rainforest, denudation efficiency in the humid tropics, the Quaternary evolution and changes, and the applied side of tropical geomorphology.
  • Tropical rain forests
  • Bibliography ; Biogeography ; Deforestation ; Forest ; Global change ; Interannual variability ; Phenology ; Tropical rain forest
  • An appreciation of time on a variety of scales may help explain the complexity of tropical rain forests and provide a frame of reference to consider the consequences of anthropogenic deforestation and global climatic change on this biome. Here
  • the A. reviews published tropical rain-forest research that has focused on the time dimension from late 1992 until early 1994.

  • Atmospheric dynamics ; Catastrophe ; Climatic data ; Cyclogenesis ; Indian Ocean ; Tropical cyclone
  • The characteristics of a destructive tropical cyclone season in the South West Indian Ocean are analyzed. The areas of cyclogenesis and dissipation are examined. The development of Cyclone Demoina is tracked. - (AJC)
  • An evaluation of the port of Fremantle as a tropical cyclone haven

  • The Fremantle area provides safe shelter in the inner harbour or in Cockburn Sound from tropical cyclones. Large ships anchoring in Gage Roads would be more vulnerable to strong winds and seas associated with intense tropical cyclones. (JPB).

  • Multi-objective programming model of tropical crops in Hainan Island
  • Agroclimatology ; China ; Ecology ; Hainandao ; Mathematical model ; Model ; Multi-purpose programming ; Tropical zone
  • According to Hainan Island's biological characteristics, and existing structure of productivity of tropical crops and local climatic conditions, this paper carries on regional division of tropical crops by fuzzy mathematics. Based on calculation
  • of basic parameters for the formation of production, near-term optimum models of tropical crops structure of each region was established by means of multi-objective programming.

  • La superficie couverte par un climat de type tropical s'est très sensiblement accrue entre 1979 et 2009, surtout dans l'hémisphère Sud durant l'hiver boréal, ce qui semble au moins en partie imputable à la déplétion de l'ozone stratosphérique au
  • -dessus de l'Antarctique. On s'interroge sur les autres mécanismes explicatifs et sur les incertitudes qui subsistent, notamment celles qui sont liées aux critères de définition d'un climat tropical. - (JPB)
