Section 1
Landforms
Tectonic plates- vulnerable to earthquakes,
volcanic eruptions, and ocean flooding.

Section 1
Water Systems
East Asias rivers provide transportation, water,
and rich mineral deposits for fertile soils.

Section 1
Natural Resources
Mineral resources are abundant in East Asia, but
they are unevenly distributed.
  • China contains the greatest share and widest
    range of minerals.
  • China is the worlds leading producer of rice
  • 25 South Korea is suitable for farming
  • Seafood farming has become a major industry in
    several countries.

Section 2-GTR
Climate Regions
  • Monsoon- seasonal winds
  • Japan Current- warm water current that flows
    northward adds moisture to winter monsoons
  • Typhoon- a violent tropical storm that forms in
    the Pacific Ocean, usually in late summer

Section 2
Climate Regions
East Asias natural vegetation tends to parallel
the regions climate zones, which are influenced
by latitude and physical features.
  • Midlatitude climates
  • Humid subtropical- hot summers with heavy rains
  • Southeastern part of East Asia
  • Humid continental- warm summers/cold, snowy
    winters

22
Section 2
Climate Regions (cont.)
  • Important plants
  • Bamboo- eaten by Pandas used for construction
  • Mulberry tree- silk worms eat the leaves
  • Tea bush

23
Section 2
Climate Regions (cont.)
  • Dry climates
  • DesertGobi and Taklimakan
  • Dust storms through Gobi due to Monsoons
  • Steppe support grasses and few trees

Section 2
Seasonal Weather Patterns
Prevailing winds and ocean currents influence
East Asias climates.
  • Influences on the climate
  • Monsoons
  • Summer Monsoon- brings 80 of rain
  • Winter Monsoon- brings snow to Japan Korea
  • Ocean currentsJapan Current ?, Kuril Current ?
  • Warm, humid air over the tropical ocean results
    in typhoons- ocean currents and monsoons
