Climate in China
Because of its huge land and diverse geographical zones, China has more than one type of climate. There are tropical zones, subtropical zones, warm temperate zones, moderate temperate zones, cold temperate zones, and plateau zones in China. The majority of China’s regions are subtropical, with parts of Guangdong, Taiwan, and Yunan, as well as all of Hainan, being tropical. Parts of Tibet, including Qinghai, Sichuan, and Xinjiang, are located in the plateau zone. Inner Mongolia has a tiny area of cold temperate climate. Its northern region is close to the freezing point.
China is located in East Asia, with the Pacific Ocean to its east and south. Because of their geographical location, eastern and southern China are influenced by the monsoon and have climates such as tropical monsoon climate, subtropical monsoon climate, and temperate monsoon climate. There are two types of climate in western China. 1) Continental climate with a temperate climate and a plateau climate 2) arid land climate
Most places have a cold and dry winter climate and a warm and rainy summer environment. Its climate is difficult and diverse from region to region due to its varying topography and topographical conditions. In the northern section of Heilongjiang province, for example, there is a long winter but no summer, but in Hainan province, there is a long summer but no winter.
The complex and variable climate of China results in a wide range of temperature belts and dry moist zones. In terms of temperature, the country can be divided into two parts: south and north.
