We’ve got you prepared with this easy-to-use printable map showing the world’s climatic zones. Using and displaying this material in your science or geography classes is ideal.

The teacher-made map, which is available as an easy-to-print PDF, is a great resource for students to use while figuring out where various climates are located across the world. This resource is available in black and white for the students to finish on their own.

6 Climate Zones of the World

  • Arid (dry)
  • Continental (subarctic)
  • Highland (alpine)
  • Polar (ice cap)
  • Temperate (moderate)
  • Tropical

There are many climatic zones in the globe, however for better understanding, geographers defined the climatic region based on the maximum and lowest temperatures, the temperature range, and the total and seasonal distribution of precipitation. Learn about the world’s major climatic regions, which can help you prepare for competitive exams including the UPSC preliminary, SSC, State Services, NDA, CDS, and Railway exams, among others.

 1- Equatorial Climatic Region (100 N to 100 S)

It is between the equator and 5° to 10° north and south. This area receives 150 cm or more of precipitation annually. The mornings are brilliant and dazzling because of the extreme heat, and convectional rain falls in the evenings. The heavy downpours are frequently accompanied by thunder and lightning. Hevea brasiliensis, a natural rubber, is highly prized in this area. Three clearly defined regions fall into this category: the Amazon basin (South America), the Zaire basin (Africa), particularly the western section, and South East Asia (primarily islands).

2- The Savana or Sudan Climate

Between the trade wind scorching deserts and the tropical woods lies this sort of transitional climate. It is restricted to the tropics and is most developed in the Sudan, where the seasons are most clearly marked as dry and wet, therefore the name Sudan Climate. There are two distinct seasons in this climate: a chilly, dry season and a hot, rainy one.

3- The Hot Desert and Mid-Latitude Desert Climate 

Hot deserts are sometimes known as trade wind deserts since the primary cause of their aridity is the influence of offshore trade winds. The largest desert is the Sahara in Africa, followed by the Great Australian Desert. It is located in the range of 200–300 N and S. Hot deserts: Sahara, Australia, Arabian, Iranian, Thar, Kalahari, Namib, Nubian, Mohave (USA), Atacama etc. Terrible Desert: Gobi, Patagonia, Turkestan, etc.

4- Warm Temperate Western Margin

It has a climate with hot, dry summers that are pleasant, and mild, chilly winters with high to moderate rainfall. It covers the climate of a large portion of the region around the Mediterranean Sea.

5- Temperate Grasslands or Steppe Climate

Because of their location in the land masses distant from the impact of the ocean, they are dry lands. It is typified by little and erratic precipitation. There is a 13°C and 30 cm annual temperature and rainfall range. various regions refer to the sub-regions of this climatic region by various names:

6- The Arctic or Polar or Tundra Climate

It is one of the harshest and coldest biomes on Earth. This temperature zone’s habitats are found in treeless areas of the Arctic and atop mountains, where there is little rainfall and a chilly, windy environment. This region’s grounds are mostly covered in snow throughout the year, with a sudden bloom of wildflowers in the summer.
