  1. Tropical ClimatesTropical SavannaTropical Rainforest

  2. Tropical Savanna Hot all year round, a few months are very dry, broad grassland, few trees

  3. Tropical Rain Forest Description – Hot and rainy all year round, lush vegetation

  4. Mild ClimatesHumid SubtropicalMediterraneanMarine West Coast Climate

  5. Humid Subtropical Location: mid-latitudes (close to tropics) Description - hot humid summers with heavy rain; short and mild winter, deciduous trees (oak, magnolia, palms)

  6. Mediterranean Location: around Mediterranean Sea Description - Mild rainy winters and hot dry summers, short shrubs, trees, some coniferous trees

  7. Marine West Coast Location: mid-latitudes, west coast Description – Winds from the ocean make it mild; rainy winters and cool summers, deciduous and coniferous forests

  8. Continental ClimatesHumid ContinentalSubarctic

  9. Humid Continental Location: mid latitude Description: 4 seasons; winters can be long, cold and snowy but there are short hot summers, deciduous forests, grassland

  10. Subarctic Climate Close to the polar regions; cold bitter winters but temperatures go above freezing in summer, taiga (coniferous forests)

  11. Polar ClimatesTundraIce Cap

  12. Tundra Arctic region; “vast treeless plain” cold, harsh and dry; permafrost

  13. Ice Cap Bitterly cold with giant ice sheets; monthly averages do not go above freezing

  14. Dry ClimatesSteppeDesert

  15. Steppe surrounds many deserts with partly dry grasslands and prairies; 10-20 inches of annual rainfall

  16. Desert Dry all year; gets less than 10 inches of annual rainfall

  17. Highland ClimatesHighland/Mountain

  18. Highland or Mountain Local climates vary greatly because of differences in elevation; cool to cold climates year round; tall mountains will have a timberline.
