This is a very simple map of climatic zones, during geography lessons at school, I studied the climate with help of this map.

I studied this climate classification at school too. Its much easier than Köppen, but I agree that putting London and Yakutsk to the same climate type is silly.

There are not tropical fronts during summer in any southern European country.

It's cool to see this, but this is a very inferior climate classification system.

I agree. Too simplistic. It's a good introductory map, but you need Köppen or Trewartha to get into more detail. I wish they would update both maps, especially Trewartha's (notice how East Germany and the USSR still exist on Trewartha's map?)

I don't even think there is such a thing as a tropical front?

I believe that clasification was widespread in Soviet Union an only in there, thus it may be unknown for the rest of world. Because of being a Soviet/Russian thing and an own thing all elder books and encyclopedias which talk about geopgraphy in here and may be owned in here by a random person in their home use this classification. As well there are in my parents´ home a soviet-period published encyclopedia and as a teenager I often flicked through that encylopedia´s atlas thus this equatorial-subequatorial-tropical-suptropical-... and etc sub- vs proper zones thing is very familiar to me althoug in that time I did not know it was called Alisov´s.

As well it is definetely an easy classification compared to for instance the complexity of Koeppen´s one. I believe random schoolboys who aren´t any geography freaks would like it more than Koeppen´s
