About this map
Name: Azores topographic map, elevation, terrain.
Average elevation: 2 m
Minimum elevation: 0 m
Maximum elevation: 2,050 m
The same can not be said for the higher altitudes (e.g. Mount Pico), where upper air masses of a continental origin and with a more direct pathway can reach the surface and present those areas with drier air and more extreme temperatures. At the same time, this free atmosphere circulating air transports aerosols to the archipelago, namely volcanic ash or fine sands from the Sahara desert, which sporadically affect the radiation and air quality.
