The climate of Australia varies widely, although most of Australia is desert or semi-’40 of the territory covered by Medan. Only the southeast and southwest corners have a temperate climate and moderately fertile soil. The northern part of the country has a tropical climate: part is tropical rainforest, part grassland and part desert.
Rainfall is highly variable, with frequent droughts, caused, among other factors, in part by the El Nino Southern Oscillation. Occasionally, dust storms cover a region or even several states and there are occasional reports of large tornadoes. Promotion of the levels of salinity and desertification in some areas are degrading the landscape.
The Australian tropical and subtropical locations, with some rain and cold season, the western coasts do most of Western Australia, while most of the continent is a hot desert with aridity. Rain that produces precious soil moisture needed for dry land crops. A 2005 study of invesigadores Australia and USA. UU. investigated the desertification of the interior, suggesting that an explanation is related to the settlers who arrived nearly 50,000 years ago. The regular burning of vegetation by these settlers could have prevented monsoons reach the interior of Australia.
