Common description



Brazil is characterized by a hot climate. The average monthly temperature ranges from 16 to 29 ° C; only on high eastern arrays the average July temperature is 12 to 14 ° C; freezing possible. But the precipitation regime and the types of climate are different. In the west of the Amazon, the equatorial humid climate (rainfall 2000-3000 mm per year, amplitudes of average monthly temperatures of 2-3 ° C), in the east of the Amazon and adjacent gentle slopes of the Guiana and Brazilian plateaus - subequatorial with a dry period of up to 3-4 months rainfall 1500 -2000 mm, on the coast about 3000 mm per year). In the center of the Brazilian plateau and the Pantanale, there is a sub-equatorial humid climate (precipitation of 1400-2000 mm per year) with large temperature amplitudes (especially extreme temperatures up to 45-50 ° C); in the north-east of the plateau, rainfall decreases to 500 mm and less per year, and rainfall is extremely irregular: it is an area of frequent and prolonged droughts. In the eastern suburbs, the climate is tropical trade winds, hot and humid, with a short dry season. In the south, the plateaus have a constantly humid climate, tropical to the Parana Plateau and subtropical in the elevated eastern regions to the south of 24 ° South.


The currencies of Brazil have consistently been the Brazilian flight, the Brazilian cruzeiro, the cruise, the Brazilian Real. Replacement of one currency with another was mainly done with simultaneous denomination due to high inflation.
