Climate in Haiti
Climate Haiti — Tropical trade machine. The country has the shape of the horseshoe, elongated in the eastern direction, and the internal areas are protected by mountains from the cooling effect of winds blowing from the ocean. The port-O-Prince is marked with average annual temperatures for West Indies (27° C), despite the fact that the average temperature of July is 29° WITH. Seasonal temperature fluctuations are very insignificant, and daily — 11-17° WITH. In mountainous areas, climate is cooler.
The amount of precipitation varies depending on the local conditions and exposure of the terrain in relation to the traffic winds. In some areas, up to 2500 mm of precipitation falls annually, while in the nearby valleys of only 500 mm. Due to the high evaporation and porosity of the soils, a significant part of Haiti gets less than 1250 mm of precipitation per year and refers to semi-diaride territories.
The negative impact on the Haiti climate was rendered long-term logging (especially intense after 1960). As a result, less precipitation began to fall out and the air temperature increase was recorded. Forest cutting promoted the strong development of soil erosion, especially on the mountain slopes. Wood is universally used as fuel for cooking and at easy industrial enterprises.
