Quaternary climate

Plot shows regions with Quaternary evaporite deposits centroids plotted on the earth surface where an evaporite depositional setting (sabkha, salina, playa, saline lake, saline soil) extends across an area of more than 250 km.2 This plot set is overlain on a Köppen climate base (after Kottek et al., 2006). Main Climates: A; tropical, B; arid, C; warm temperate, D; snow, E; polar. Precipitation: W; desert, S; steppe, f: fully humid, s: summer dry, w; winter dry, m; monsoonal. Temperature: h; hot arid, k; cold arid, a; hot summer, b; warm summer, c; cool summer, d; extremely continental, F: polar frost, T; polar tundra..
