Greek Clamatic Classification

GREEK CLASSIFICATION: The three climate zones are based on temperature as this:

i. Torrid/Hot: Areas within the Tropics with a very intense heat throughout the year.

ii. Frigid/very Cold: Areas within Polar regions, which have a very cot d temperature throughout the year.

iii. Temperate/Mild: Areas within the middle latitudes, which lie between the torrid and frigid regions, which are neither too hot nor too cold.

Note that this classification is inadequate because of its simplistic approach undermining the vital climatic factors such as latitude, altitude, ocean currents, vegetative cover and prevailing wind, hence came the Koppen’s.
