Assuming a generalized zonal system of world climatic and wind circulation, zone "T" is an area of:
  • A
    travelling low pressure systems.
  • B
    NE trade winds.
  • C
    SE trade winds.
  • D
    subtropical high pressure systems.

Refer to figure.

Zone T depicts the Sub-tropical climate – zone influenced by the sub-tropical high-pressure belt.

  • Dry climate (20º-35º) – formerly known as the arid subtropical climate. Evaporation and transpiration exceed precipitation, no permanent water courses.
  • Upper winds – westerly subtropical jet streams.
  • Short wet seasons:
- At low LAT – Summer
- At high LAT - Winter
