  1. A semi-arid climate, semi-desert climate, or steppe climate is a dry climate sub-type. It is located on regions that receive precipitation below potential evapotranspiration, but not as low as a desert climate. There are different kinds of semi-arid climates, depending on variables such as temperature, and they give rise to different biomes .

  2. BWk = Cold desert climate; BSh = Hot semi-arid climate; BSk = Cold semi-arid climate; Group C: Temperate climates. This type of climate has the coldest month averaging between 0 °C (32 °F) (or −3 °C (27 °F)) and 18 °C (64.4 °F) and at least one month averaging above 10 °C (50 °F).

  4. Apr 30, 2018 · Hot semi-arid climates are found in the tropic or sub-tropics, often on the fringe of sub-tropical deserts. They have very hot summers and mild or warm winters. Cold semi-arid regions are usually found in temperate zones and are more likely to occur inland, away from large bodies of water.

    A more pre­cise de­f­i­n­i­tion is given by the Köppen cli­mate clas­si­fi­ca­tion, which treats steppe cli­mates (BSk and BSh) as in­ter­me­di­ates be­tween desert cli­mates (BW) and humid cli­mates (A, C, D) in eco­log­i­cal char­ac­ter­is­tics and agri­cul­tural po­ten­tial. Semi-arid cli­mates tend to sup­port short, thorny or scrubby veg­e­ta­...

    Hot semi-arid cli­mates (type "BSh") tend to be lo­cated in the 20s and 30s lat­i­tudes of the trop­ics and sub­trop­ics, typ­i­cally in prox­im­ity to re­gions with a trop­i­cal sa­vanna or a humid sub­trop­i­cal cli­mate. These cli­mates tend to have hot, some­tim ex tremely hot, sum­mers and warm to cool win­ters, with some to min­i­mal pre­cip­...

    Cold semi-arid cli­mates (type "BSk") tend to be lo­cated in el­e­vated por­tions of tem­per­ate zones, typ­i­cally bor­der­ing a humid con­ti­nen­tal cli­mate or a Mediter­ranean cli­mate. They are also typ­i­cally found in con­ti­nen­tal in­te­ri­ors some dis­tance from large bod­ies of water. Cold semi-arid cli­mates usu­ally fea­ture warm to ho...

    In cli­mate clas­si­fi­ca­tion, any one of three isotherms may be used to de­lin­eate hot from cold semi-arid cli­mates — that of 18 °C (64 °F) av­er­age an­nual tem­per­a­ture; or that of the cold­est month, ei­ther 0 °C (32 °F) or −3 °C (27 °F). The warm side of the isotherm of choice is clas­si­fied as BSh, the cooler side as BSk. As a re­sult o...
