3 Temperature Central Asia is generally a cold region. As Table 2 indicates, 90% of Central Asia has cold winters, whereas less than 5% has very warm summers. The inter-annual variation of the mean temperature is quite pronounced, as shown in the climate diagrams of Figure 5 and the maps of Figure 10. , one year). The map of mean annual heat units accumulated above 0◦ C (Figure 11) shows that two thirds of the region accumulate less than 4,000 degree-days. This is very low in comparison to tropical regions, which easily reach more than double this amount.
