3. Cold Climate Responses. Human response (i) the people are nomads and lead a migratory life, for example, the Bushmen of the Kalahari Desert, Bedouins of Sahara and Arabia, Aborigines of Australia. People (our species, homo-sapiens) adapted to life in the Sahara a long time ago. In this region the human lives depend very much on the flora and fauna. The Atacama Desert, on the Pacific shores of Chile, is a coastal desert. Some weather station s in the Atacama have never recorded a drop of rain. An aquifer is a place where the water table is higher and intersects with the surface thus allowing people to utilise the water in the form of irrigation, domestic and industrial use. Some areas of the Atacama are often covered by fog. 1. The Tundra region has an unfavorable environment for human settlement. Rain Shadow Deserts.
The main kind of agriculture found here is "shifting cultivation". As a species, humans have survived Ice Ages which brought the intensely cold environment, normal for our polar and sub-polar regions, across much of the planet. Lack of body hair and ability to sweat to cool.
Wearing of long loose clothing to create convection cooling. We lose heat to the surrounding environment in several ways, as shown in the illustration above on the right.However, simple radiation is the process that is responsible for most of the loss, except in hot dry climates where evaporative cooling, or sweating, can be more significant. ... Short notes on Natural Environment of the Equatorial Region. It is the largest desert area on the continent—covering an area of about 900,000 square miles (2,300,000 square km)—and the second largest on Earth , surpassed in size only by the Sahara , in northern Africa . Unlike the temperate region the equatorial region has a warmer climate thus people where light clothes and and they mostly depend on agriculture and other primary sectors of work to live on. Short notes on Human Response in the Tropical Desert. A desert is a barren area of landscape where little precipitation occurs and, consequently, living conditions are hostile for plant and animal life. Arabian Desert, great desert region of extreme southwestern Asia that occupies almost the entire Arabian Peninsula. The inhabitants are the Eskimos of North America, the Lapps of Scandinavia, the Samoyeds of Siberia, the Yakuts of the Lena basin, the Koryaks and Chickchis of north eastern erstwhile USSR . 2. The total population of the Tundra region may not exceed 100,000 persons. Human Adaptations to Extreme Cold Humans have successfully adapted morphologically, physiologically, and behaviorally to environmental stress, including extreme cold. Human activities Human settlements at aquifers and oasis.
Many people living in freezing climates drink alcohol to warm themselves. In fact, the Atacama Desert is the driest place on Earth. ... Camel is the ship of the desert. But the region can go decade s without rainfall.
