Climate Diagrams

Puja Ahluwalia and Barney Mouat

São Paulo, Brazil

SEE-U 2000

introduction
Introduction
  • The different biomes of the world are characterized by different vegetation
  • Walter Climate Diagrams relate annual precipitation and temperature
  • The type of vegetation can be inferred from a Walter Climate Diagram
objective
Objective
  • To compile temperature and precipitation data over the past 16 years in Morro do Diabo and relate these two variables in a Walter Climate Diagram.
methods
Methods
  • Weather records were collected from the Morro do Diabo State Park, Sao Paolo, Brazil
  • From the available data (1977-1996), four Walter climate diagrams were constructed
  • A four year interval was omitted (lack of data)
observations
Observations
  • There are periods of times within the year (july-august) that receive considerably less rainfall.
  • This abiotic factor acting synergistically with the annual decrease in temperature (tropical winter) may account for the deciduous habit expresses by some trees within the region
results
Results
  • Annual rainfall for Morro do Diabo State Park > 1300mm for the time intervals studied
  • February and March were consistently the months of highest temperatures
  • July and August were consistently the months of lowest temperatures
  • the average annual temperature ranged between 22.5 and 22.7 oC
conclusion
Conclusion
  • After examining the World Climate software and analyzing data specific to this site, we have classified this ecosystem as a mesophytic deciduous rainforest, part of the larger Moist Atlantic Rainforest, typical of South East Brazil.
