A qualitative review emphasizing climatic aspects of the Amazon and Northeast Brazil

Isimar de Azevedo Santos, Julio Buchmann

Abstract


This paper is a review covering several physical factors that affect and define the behavior of the climate of the Amazonia and Northeastern Brazil. This review show the changes that may be debited to the presence and action of man, in conjunction with the fluctuations that nature imposes on the climate of these two regions in particular. The conclusion is the perception that it is possible to act so smart on the tropical South-American environment for the well being of the same man who until now was a destructive agent. However the risk remains if we exceed the threshold that would make the damage irreparable.
