The island of Taiwan, located at the southern end of the gigantic insular festoon that branches off to the N of the Kamčatka peninsula, interposing itself between the Pacific Ocean and the “inland” seas that border much of East Asia, has an almost oval shape, oriented from NNE to SSW; presents a mountainous nature, witness of a recent geological past, characterized by the youth of the reliefs, the presence of extensive volcanic soils and high seismicity. Basically the geological structure of the island, which rests on the southeastern edge of the Chinese continental shelf, is closely connected to that of the mainland of which it represents the outcropping section of Cenozoic marginal folds overlying a Paleozoic nucleus, in several places highlighted by erosion. From the morphological point of view, a mountainous belt of crystalline rocks can be distinguished at the E, partly covered by sedimentary layers, which reaches its maximum height in Mount Yu Shan (3997 m); the relief instead slopes gently in the western section of the island until it gives way to a vast coastal plain, alluvial, made up of clays, sands and gravels of recent fill that descend to the shallow waters of the Strait of Formosa. On the eastern side, on the other hand, the mountains overlook the ocean, plunging steeply into the depths of the Pacific, sometimes with gigantic escarpments that give way to narrow coastal plains. § The hydrographic system is not very developed and the rivers generally have a short course and an irregular regime. Among the main ones are the Tamsui (Tanshui), which flows into the northern coast, and the Tachia, which descends to the Strait of Formosa along the western plain. § Crossed by Tropic of Cancer, subjected to the influence of the warm Curoscivo current that laps its eastern coasts, Taiwan has a hot humid climate which however shows significant regional variations, due among other things to the monsoon regime and the presence of the mountainous barrier, which in turn hinders the influences of the monsoons on both sides, as well as of course mitigating thermal excesses. While in the southern section, subject to the SW summer monsoon, there is a wet summer season and a dry winter season, in the northern section this variation is much less marked and the rainfall is mainly determined by the NE winter monsoon. Except for a sheltered western belt which has less than 1500 mm of rainfall per year, the island receives an average of 2000-2500 mm of rain per year, with maximums (over 3000) on the southern mountainous slopes. Temperatures vary somewhat on both sides; in the external one, which is more humid, there are average values ​​of 22-27 ºC, in the internal one it goes from 15 ºC in January to 28 ºC in July. On the reliefs there are much lower values, especially in winter (10 ºC). Typical cyclonic manifestations of Taiwan are typhoons that hit the island from the SE; they are predominant in the summer period and are always ruinous, accompanied by furious storms.
