CLIMATIC FACTORS OF CHINA (continued)
1935, 2 (2):
Temperature:-Having a continental climate, China is too hot in summer and too cold in winter for its latitudes. The deficiency of warmth in winter amounts to 17癈. at Aigun in north Manchuria, but decreases to 4? C. in Kuingchow on Hainan Island. The excess of heat in summer decreases likewise from north to south.If we define winter as the period when mean temperature goes below 10? C. and snmmer when it is over 22? C., we will find that there is no winter in south China south of Wenchow,Chekiang; and no summer north of Harbin,Manchuria.
