Tag Archives: Study in Ecuador

Ecuador extends in the northwestern section of the subcontinent, between the Pacific Ocean, which it faces W for 800 km, and the Amazon basin, which tends towards the E; it also includes the Galápagos archipelago (Islas Galápagos), located in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, about a thousand kilometers from the Ecuadorian coast. The borders of Ecuador are conventional: in particular the one with Peru, the subject of long disputes, was recognized by the Ecuadorian government in 1998, and now allows access to the Amazon basin. Ecuador recalls in its name the position straddling the Equator, but its main geographical feature does not consist in this, but in being an Andean state: in the fertile valleys enclosed in the Andes, whose double alignment dominates the middle belt of the country, Ecuador has had its historical and cultural matrix (with the Incas), the origin of the population, the basis of the economy. As far as the economic aspect is concerned, the country experienced an expansion phase until the early 1980s. It is therefore difficult to explain the real collapse that hit him from that decade onwards; the analyzes lead to trace the extreme volatility of the Ecuadorian economy to a chronically unstable political structure, which culminated in the serious institutional crisis of 1997. However, in these early years of the 2000s, there was no lack of opportunities for new development policies. However, the problems to be solved are numerous and of different nature. According to COUNTRYAAH, Ecuador is a nation in South America, the capital city of which is Quito. The latest population of Ecuador is 17,643,065.

CLIMATE
Despite the position straddling the Equator, the country has no typically equatorial climatic characteristics except in the East. Although the coast is characterized by constantly high temperatures (in Guayaquil the average in January is 27 ºC, that in July is 25 ºC), throughout the year, it presents the clear alternation between a rainy season (invierno, from December to June), in which the influence of the equatorial moist air masses predominates, and a drier one (verano, from June to December), when the region is subject to the action of dry air masses from the Pacific. However, rainfall is never very abundant; Guayaquil, for example, receives 1000 mm of rain per year, and the extreme southern coastal stretch, lapped by the Humboldt current, or Peru, is even very arid, registering a maximum of 500 mm per year. In the Sierra it is of course the presence of the reliefs that determine the greatest climatic differences. As for temperatures, there is the distinction, typical of the Andean regions, in tierras calientes (the low valleys and the pedemonte), templadas (the central highlands), frías (the areas between 3000-3500 and 4500 m) and heladas (the high altitudes starting from 4500 m, where the limit of perennial snows is set): it goes from an average temperature never lower than 20 ºC for the tierras calientes to the perpetually spring climate of 13-15 ºC in the inter-Andean zone, to colder temperatures, with winter averages even below zero, in the tierras frías, up to the glacial formations of the higher areas. Rainfall is rather scarce in the hoyas, although it varies widely from basin to basin (the wettest is that of Quito, with 1100 mm per year); the rains are rather abundant on the eastern slopes of the mountain ranges, scarce on the western ones. Constantly high temperatures and very abundant rainfall, up to 4000-4500 mm per year, finally has the East, hit all year round by warm and humid air masses of Atlantic origin (NE and SE trade winds).
