Brazil - Brazil - Climate: Brazil has a humid tropical and subtropical climate except for a drier area in the Northeast, sometimes called the drought quadrilateral or drought polygon, that extends from northern Bahia to the coast between Natal and São Luís; that zone receives about 15–30 inches (– mm) of precipitation a year. Much of Brazil receives 40–70 inches (1,–1, mm.

Calculation of relative humidity Determine the saturation vapor pressure (ew), as a function of (tw) and then calculate the ratio of the vapor pressure (e) to (ew). If the vapor pressure is determined to be a minus value, consider the relative humidity to be zero.

Humid landforms by Ian Douglas Download PDF EPUB FB2

Landforms created by running water dominate the land surface of earth. However, although the role of water is seen everywhere, it is seen at its best in those regions where the climates are wet enough to support a forest vegetation with a continuous canopy.

The seasonal fluctuations in the character of precipitation with snow in winter and rain in summer which characterize cool temperate. It attempts to break with traditional approaches and to discuss humid landforms from the standpoint of the humid tropics.

In addition, it seeks to demonstrate that the processes creating and destroying landforms are also those that regulate biotic activity at the earth's surface. The approach followed in this book is to describe the processes Author: Ian Douglas. Additional Physical Format: Online version: Douglas, Ian, Humid landforms.

Topics considered in this book on humid landforms are: humid landforms and denudation systems; hydrological and biological controls of the processes operating on humid landforms; weathering; work of water on slopes; hillslope forms; channel initiation, hydraulics and sediment transport; the shapes and patterns of river channels; fluvial depositional landforms; time and morphological unity of.

'normal' pattern of landform evolution, as a variation of the situation in the humid tropics. The book emphasises the basic principles of chemical, physical and biotic interrelationships which affect the pattern of landform evolution and provides the reader with a greater understanding of the changes, sometimes dramatic, that moving water makes.

viewed 21 Julydoi: /n   About twenty-five years ago Stoddart () questioned the occurrence of unique tropical landforms and the matching of tropical climatic regions with morphological ones. Fifteen years ago Douglas (a), in a review of tropical geomorphology, found it difficult to argue against similar humid landform genesis in both temperate and tropical regions.

Geomorphological research in the humid to seasonal tropics has primarily concentrated on the most characteristic landform assemblage of this zone, namely that of stepped, largely undissected etchplains, often dotted with inselbergs and cutting across ancient basement rocks.

Although the author discusses extensively this subject, he puts particular emphasis on the differences of chemical. Four Processes [].

Four processes: Hydraulic action: Water exerts pressure on the river bank and undercuts it. Cracks are widened. Corrosion/Solution (Solvent action): Water dissolves soluble minerals from the bed or bank, e.g. calcium in is a form of chemical erosion.

Abrasion (Corrasion): River load acts as a tool to wear away the bed or bank, e.g. large, angular boulders. • Age of landforms varies over orders of magnitude. • 9continents (10 years) to microscale features like pools and 2riffles (10 years).

• Larger landforms most durable (longer-lasting). •Smaller landforms created/destroyed faster than larger ones. • Rates of geomorphic / geologic change slow for larger areas.

You can thank humidity for that unpleasant feeling. Humidity is the amount of water vapor in the air. If there is a lot of water vapor in the air, the humidity will be high. The higher the humidity, the wetter it feels outside. On the weather reports, humidity is usually explained as relative humidity.

Relative humidity is the amount of water. Humans, books, and electronics all have their own particular ideal humidity range; fortunately, these ranges overlap. The best humidity range is the area where all three overlap. (The best ways to control humidity are discussed towards the end of this article.) Before discussing the ideal humidity range, though, it’s important to define units.

Some of the oldest landforms can be found in the humid tropics (Vasconcelos et al., ).Nonetheless, denudation rates of uplands can be high and estimates vary widely, depending on method and observation period (White et al., ; Hsieh and Knuepfer, ; Hartshorn et al., ; Thomas, ; Riebe et al., ).The highest sediment yields from tropical mountains are in rivers draining.

It provides thoroughly up-to-date concepts and relevant case studies, and emphasises the importance of geomorphology in the management and sustainable development of the tropical environment, including climate change scenarios.
