Political division
The province of Tucumán encompasses a total surface of 8,696 sq. mi. (22,524 km2).It is the smallest province in the country (it occupies an 0.8 per cent of the Argentine surface).
Tucumán lies at the convergence of temperate climates and tropical climates further north, retaining characteristics of both in the lowlands. Furthermore, it is highly monsoonal, and depends also on elevation. As a rule of thumb, the far east is dryer and hotter, whereas the Piedmont sees many storms in the summer which moderate temperatures. The first foothills are very humid, provoking a dense jungle, and as altitude increases, a thick forest and then cool grasslands. The westernmost areas are once again a bit dryer because of a rain shadow.
