CLIMATE

Climate has assumed an imperative part in overseeing the lives of Maldivians from time immemorial. This is not astonishing of a country with under one percent land and more than 99 percent ocean. Since old times, Maldivians have sorted out their lives in light of a framework on periods alluded to as 'nakaiy', each of which is 13 or 14 days in length and is isolated into two seasons; the "Iruvai" (north-east rainstorm) and "hulhangu" (south-west storm). The nakaiy logbook was is still used to decide such things as the best time for angling, travel or planting yields. The Maldives has a tropical atmosphere with the climate for the most part dictated by the storms.
