  40. Tropical Rain Forest Climates • Hainan = off China’s East coast is a tropical rain forest.

  41. Weather Patterns • Monsoons = are movement of prevailing winds that bring seasonal weather patterns.

  42. Weather Patterns • Japan Current = or Kuroshio is a warm water current flowing northward along the southern and southeastern coasts of Japanese Islands, add moisture to the winter monsoons.

  43. Weather Patterns • Typhoons = interaction of wind and ocean currents give rise to violent storms.
