Example text

We shall return to this subject in chapter 6. The microclimate of cities Although climate is often an important factor in determining what plants and animals can survive in a particular region, there are always locations where an organism can escape from the most severe effects of climate, and the more sensitive plants and animals do just that. On the forest floor, sunshine is not as intense as in the open during the day, and neither does it become so cold at night. The wind speed is lower in such a sheltered locality, and the undisturbed air builds up higher levels of humidity.

Houses are often larger in this zone, with bigger gardens and more extensive recreational facilities, such as swimming pools, tennis courts, open parks, and so on. Beyond the suburban residential zone, there is often a more diffuse and ill-defined zone (Zone E) from which some residents commute into the city. Often this consists of a series of smaller towns situated along radiating highways that give access to the city itself. These small towns may be intermingled with rural areas supporting small farms or areas of horticulture.

Regions such as the Caribbean and the Gulf of Mexico, or the Bay of Bengal in the north of the Indian Ocean are particularly prone to such storms and the flooding of coastal settlements. Tidal waves, or tsunamis, are even more devastating. These are usually generated by undersea earthquakes or volcanic eruptions that produce shock waves transmitted at very high velocities through the oceans. Surface waves are produced, but these are not normally very large when traveling through deep water. They become more massive and dangerous as they enter the shallower conditions around coastal regions, when the front of the wave is slowed and the rear of the wave catches up with it, creating a crest that can rise to 60 feet (20 m) or more.
