  • Köppen’s scheme to classify world climates was devised in 1918 by Dr Wladimir Köppen of the University of Graz in Austria (Köppen 1931; Köppen and Geiger 1928, 1930-39). This paper presents a modification of Köppen’s scheme. The Köppen classification is based on the concept that native vegetation is the best expression of climate, climate zone boundaries having been selected with vegetation limits in mind (Trewartha 1943). The classification may be applied to present-day climatic conditions… CONTINUE READING
