Mongolia, republic in Central Asia. The country is a plateau crossed by mountain ranges. Most of it is steppe and semi-desert; the Gobi Desert occupies the south and southeast. In Mongolia there is mainly livestock farming. The rich mineral resources are still little used (so far mainly coal, copper, molybdenum ores).
The population is 90% Mongolians; Lamaist Buddhism is traditionally predominant.
History: Mongolia was part of the Chinese Empire until 1911. With the help of Soviet troops, the country fought for independence. The Mongolian People’s Republic, founded in 1924, was not recognized by China until 1946. In 1990 the Communist Party gave up its claim to leadership and free parliamentary elections took place. The state name was changed to Mongolia in 1992.

The climate is extremely continental with large temperature fluctuations (July mean 10 ° C in the north, 22 ° C in the south, maximum 40 ° C, January mean corresponding to −35 ° C and −15 ° C, minimum −50 ° C) and low annual precipitation (im 60–100 mm in the south, 200–300 mm in the north, at altitudes up to 500 mm). Most of the precipitation falls in the warm summer. Characteristic for the cold, dry winter climate are very short transitional seasons. A closed winter snow cover is only present in central Mongolia and in the north as well as in the higher mountains.
Mongolia has an extreme continental climate with hot summers and cold winters. In winter, temperatures of -35 ° C during the day and -50 ° C at night can occur. The nomads who roam the plains with their herds have learned in the course of history to cope with the extreme climate. The first deep frost in September means that the plants are shock-frozen and retain their nutrients. This is the only reason why the animals can survive the harsh winter. Usually it snows very little, so that the animals can scratch the fodder plants.
In the winter months, however, it may be impossible for the animals to get to the forage plants in the pastures due to the weather. The nomads call this time “Dzud” (drought). Usually a dzud occurs about every seven years. So the herds of nomads can always recover. The shepherds can bridge a few days with the hay they have collected during the summer months. The nomadic way of life forbids too much stockpiling because it hinders moving about. Therefore, prolonged or frequent periods of dzud in a winter are a disaster for the shepherds.
The Mongols differentiate between three types of dzud: The “white dzud” brings so much snow that the cattle can no longer find food and starve to death. With the “black Dzud” the ground freezes, but no snow falls, so the animals die of thirst. In the case of the “iron dzud”, on the other hand, a thick layer of ice forms, which seals food and liquid.
