“Hunters and Fishers are said to have been amongst the first to mention Climate as what you expect and weather is what you get. Thus the distinction arose into a thing Scholars studied and categorized.”
Long ago, back in the Dark Ages Hunters, Fishers, Trackers, Farmers and others whos activity depended on weather conditions. Began to study long term weather patterns and plan settlements and daily business accordingly. As populations grew and people began to specialize more into their own crafts. A demand for increased catchings, crops and wisely placed settlements arose. Thus simple weather changed into the Academy Arts of Climates.
This was conducted at several locations but most notably was the work of Wralt Kröbzien which gained widespread recognition and usage up through Second Age.
Arctic as such only exist at The Rim and in south Darin.
Arid are a steady part of life at Utari, Mealis, Findon and Northern part of Midgard. But can also be encountered at certain areas Naldar and Markeoy.
Continental Climate can be experienced at all Isles but is mostly a stable condition at Midgard.
Polar as such only exist at The Rim and in south Darin.
Temperate is a broad belt as such spanning across the World from Northern to Southern Midgard.
Tropical can be met at Utari, Markeoy, Findon and the Eastern side of Midgard.
Heres a description…
|A (Tropical)||f (Rainforest)m (Monsoon) w (Savanna, Dry winter) s (Savanna, Dry summer)|
|B (Dry)||w (Arid Desert)S (Semi-Arid or Steppe)||h (Hot)k (Cold)|
|C (Temperate)||w (Dry winter)f (No dry season) s (Dry summer)||a (Hot summer)b (Warm summer) c (Cold summer)|
|D (Continental)||w (Dry winter)f (No dry season) s (Dry summer)||a (Hot summer)b (Warm summer) c (Cold summer) d (Very cold winter)|
|E (Equator)||T (Tundra)F (Eternal frost (ice cap))|
Group A: This type of climate has every month of the year with an average temperature of 18 °C or higher, with significant Precipitation.
Group B: This type of climate is defined by little precipitation that does not fit the polar (EF or ET) criteria of no month with an average temperature greater than 10 °C.
Group C: This type of climate has the coldest month averaging between 0 °C or −3 °C and 18 °C and at least one month averaging above 10 °C. For the distribution of precipitation in locations that both satisfy a dry summer (Cs) and a dry winter (Cw), a location is considered to have a wet summer (Cw) when more precipitation falls within the summer months than the winter months while a location is considered to have a dry summer (Cs) when more precipitation falls within the winter months. This additional criterion applies to locations that satisfies both Ds and Dw as well.
Group D: This type of climate has at least one month averaging below 0 °C or −3 °C and at least one month averaging above 10 °C.
Group E: This type of climate has every month of the year with an average temperature below 10 °C.
At rare times each Climate sticks it tongue out and into another, causing floods or draught.
