Spanish landscapes and climates

  1. 1. Spanish landscapes and climates.
  2. 2. Introduction. Hello Japanese students. In this work we are going to show you some of the most representative landscapes and climates of our country. That is why we are going to divide it into two parts: -Landscapes. -Climates.
  3. 3. Landscapes. • Spain is a country with a very big variety of landscapes, but it is mostly mountainous, its medium height is 650 m. • Iberian Peninsula
  4. 4. Northern part. • This part is charasteristic because of its exuberant vegetation. It is a mountainous zone with short and flowing rivers, like Miño, Bidasoa, Nervión and Ebro(its main features belong to the northern Spanish rivers).
  5. 5. Eastern part. • • Its more popular part is the coast. It has big beaches with sand, only delimitated in located zones. Its rivers are short, and they become dry in the summer. Some examples are: Júcar or Segura.
  6. 6. Central part. It is a big plateau divided by two mountain ranges called Iberian Range and Central System. If you travel into this zone you will find vast dry grasslands, only crossed by large rivers like Duero or Tajo. It is in this place where the Don Quixote´s story develops.
  7. 7. Southern part. • We can divide it into two parts, the Mediterranean and the Atlantic part. We can find a characteristic landscape called Coto de Doñana. It´s in the mouth of the River Guadalquivir, and here the fresh and salt water mixes into each other in the coast. The Mediterranean part has small beaches and rivers that become dry in summer.
  8. 8. Climates • Every zone named previously has a different type of climate, and its features depends of it. Those are the climates: -Mediterranean (orange). -Continental (light green). -Oceanic (dark green). -Desertic (grey). -Mountainous (blue). -Subtropical (purple).
  9. 9. Oceanic The Oceanic climate is rainy, and mostly cold during all the year. That is why in this zone there are flowing rivers and abundant vegetation. It is located in the northern part.
  10. 10. Continental • The Continental climate is dry, hot in summer and cold in winter. The rivers are very irregular, and in spring increase a lot, because of the snow melt. It is placed in the central part. The main vegetation are bush.
  11. 11. Mediterranean • That climate has temperate winters and hot summers. The rains only appear at autumn and spring. And because of this, the rivers are irregular, and mainly not very wide. It is in the southern and the eastern part.
  12. 12. Desertic • It doesn't rain in most of the year, and the temperatures increase in the day and become colder at night, but it hasn´t got seasons. There isn´t many vegetation or rivers. It is characteristic in the southern and eastern, actually it is only in specific areas, but it is becoming bigger.
  13. 13. Mountainous This is only located in places that are over 400m high. The climate is cold all the year, and in the highest zones there aren´t animals or vegetation. There aren´t many precipitations, and it normaly snows.
  14. 14. Subtropical It is the climate typical from the Canary Islands. The climate is very similar to the tropical, with abundant rains and high temperatures, but the rains are more centralised for seasons.
