Climate Responsive Design provides a unique source for students and practising architects requiring guidance on climatic design. Covering theory and application it provides examples of innovative and best practice in 'responsive architecture' through case studies. The book also covers the broader topic of technology as a generator in design which will be of interest to all .   The warm and humid zone covers the coastal parts of the country, such as Kerala, Tamilnadu & Goa. The main design criteria in the warm and humid region are to reduce heat gain by providing shading, and promote heat loss by maximizing cross ventilation.

Soil Forming Factors The factors of soil formation in the tropics do not much differ from those in other areas. John Page, in Practical Handbook of Photovoltaics (Second Edition), Basic Solar-Radiation Climatology of the Humid Tropics.

The humid tropics are located close to the equator. The Tropic of Cancer at latitude °N and the Tropic of Capricorn at latitude °S give a broad definition to the zone.

The equatorial radiation climate is quite different in nature to the. With 62% of the investigated one-degree cells in the humid and sub-humid tropics currently showing signs of shifting cultivation—the majority in the. Verheye, Willy.

This report focuses on the humid tropics, a biogeographical area within the tropical zone that contains most of its population and biologically rich natural resources.

The study originated in the humid or sub-humid tropics (annual rainfall > mm, within 30 °North/South of Equator). The study compared plots representing one or more simultaneous or sequential agroforestry practices with plots of crop monocultures (the monoculture plots will henceforth be referred to as “control”).

The biodiversity of dry and sub-humid lands is well adapted to the harsh conditions typified by inconsistent rainfall patterns, and, in many cases, high temperatures. The sociable weaver of southern Africa, for example builds communal nests which can weigh up to 1, kg in order to maximize insulation from extreme temperatures.

Hamilton, L.S. and Snedaker, S.C. (Eds) (). Abstract. The highest rates of land use change in the world are found in the tropics.

For the period –, some 17 million hectares of forest have been converted to other uses each year, of which about half are found in the moist tropical by: 5.

The humid tropical climate features thick vegetation that grows in two layers. The canopy, or top layer, contains trees that grow to staggering heights, as high as feet or more.

Thick vines grow into the canopy. The next layer comprises smaller trees, vines, palms, orchids and ferns. Little sunlight reaches this layer because of the dense. Humid subtropical climate, major climate type of the Köppen classification characterized by relatively high temperatures and evenly distributed precipitation throughout the year.

This climate type is found on the eastern sides of the continents between 20° and 35° N. The Lithic sub-order or shallow and rocky soils occupy 72 million ha or % of the humid tropics.

Lithic soils are marginal for agricultural production. Together, Entisols cover about % of the humid tropics. Alfisols: These soils occur in the semi-humid and sub-humid tropics in cool to hot humid areas with a prolonged dry season.

Alfisols. 6 Shaping Buildings for the Humid Tropics Planning for Comfort Buildings in hot-humid climates need to be different from those in hot-dry climates. Heavy buildings can moderate the temperature in dry areas. In places where the climate alternates between dry and wet seasons, heavy buildings are comfortable in the dry season.

• The humid tropics are associated with deep weathering caused by the higher activity rates of chemical processes at warmer temperatures when moisture is available.

• In steeper areas mass movement is the main process operating on the landscape. • In regions of calcareous rock, solu tion is highly significant and producesFile Size: KB. Unfortunately, this book can't be printed from the OpenBook.

A humid subtropical climate is a zone of climate characterized by hot and humid summers, and cold to mild winters. These climates normally lie on the southeast side of all continents, generally between latitudes 25° and 35° and are located poleward from adjacent tropical climates.

While many subtropical climates tend to be located at or near coastal locations, in some cases they. "Sustainable Agriculture and the Environment in the Humid Tropics" provides critically needed direction for developing strategies that both mitigate land degradation, deforestation, and biological resource losses and help the economic status of tropical countries through promotion of sustainable agricultural practices.

But in Alabama, which is sub-tropical, you get three months of the year (Jun - August) where the high can be F, and the low 90F, because the relative humidity is >90%. High thermal mass walls will just absorb all that heat, and stay there, making it unbearable, particularly at night, when it's just too hot and sticky to sleep.

Humid subtropical environments come in different variants and subtypes but they share the following charatceristics: * They are generally wet year-round and frequently humid although monsoonal variants feature a dry winter/wet summer pattern.

The temperature difference between the warmest and coldest months of the year in-creases inland. The difference is as great as 45 to 63 Fahrenheit degrees (25 to 35 Celsius degrees). Precipitation is distributed fairly evenly throughout the year. I've seen that the topic of what is and isn't considered humid subtropical in the U.S.

is quite controversial (and it isn't my intention to start another huge debate -- honest), so I'm wondering how you guys will feel about this map. According to this map, much of the Gulf Coast is considered humid subtropical.

Shaping Buildings for the Humid Tropics: Cultures, Climate, and Materials by Patti Stouter,is a 28 page PDF document that describes how to use ventilation, shading, plantings and insulation to provide comfort in hot humid climates.

They keep getting snow storms and have to use snow plows to clear the snow. Humid subtropical climates do not have snow plows and heavy winter coats. Humid subtropical places start from Virginia Beach south to around Vero Beach. And they extend westward to Corpus.
