Climatic zones and regions
Climatic zones are spacious areas with a climatic similarity. If the wave angle underlies solar radiation, this results in a purely mathematical schedule of the solar climatic zones which run parallel to the equator. This zoning, however, is not very useful, as in the same latitude degree varying climatic factors can cause different climatic emergences. That is why huge connected masses of land have a continental climate and wide ocean areas have a maritime climate. Therefore, climatic zones are classified in climatic regions.
