This map shows the relation between the season and the number of floods (max. during the North summer, Jul/Aug) and the importance of Asian floods on the total. It also shows the relation between the season and the movement of floods in latitude. For example:
• The concentration of the floods at the low latitudes in the North Hemisphere during the summer (Aug/Sep)
• The development of the floods in the South hemisphere during the winter (from Dec to Apr/May).
• The movement of the Asian floods to the South at the end of the Monsoon season (from Aug to Jan).
• The movement of the floods to the North in Africa during the winter (Mar to Sep) than to the South during the summer (Oct to Feb).
