The climate of Pantanal (Brazil)
Pantanal is a swampland in the south west of Brazil, but also covers parts of Bolivia and Paraguay. Pantanal used to be known as Laguna de Jarayes and is the largest swampland or rather one of the largest wetlands in the world. During the rainy period three quarters of this natural area is flooded which explains why there are so many unique species of animals and plants. The last few years this natural area is being threatened by global warming and deforestation. The economic developments in Brazil also threaten Pantanal. Four large parts of this swampland have been added to the list of UNESCO world heritage sites.
Pantanal has a tropical savannah climate with a distinct wet and a distinct dry period. The rainy period is during the local summer. During this period large amounts of rain fall in this area. However, the water from the surrounding areas also flow into this area because of the differences in altitude causing this area to become almost entirely flooded. Temperatures are pleasant all year round with few extremes. Subzero temperatures and snow are uncommon.
