I n tropical areas they are often related to the passage of the intertropical convergence zone,* causing one or two wet seasons each year during periods when the trade wind is interrupted. In subtropical areas, a yearly period called the monsoon is a widespread phenomenon. During this period, mainly maritime and continental air masses flow over the area successively, alternating twice a year.

The smaller the distance between the air and, for example, a leaf, the smaller the temperature difference will be. This grass minimum is generally accepted as a good measure of the minimum night temperature of the vegetation, at least of those parts that are freely exposed to the sky. The grass minimum is even a good measure of the minimum leaf temperature of parts at greater height provided that the canopy of the vegetation is closed. Natural cooling of irrigated fields. In hot and dry regions, evaporation by the vegetation requires more energy than is available from the net radiation.
