The ITCZ is a zone of convergence at the thermal equator where the trade winds meet and it is a zone where air tends to ascend. It is a low pressure belt and migrates with the changing position of the thermal equator. The thermal equator receives the most intense heat from the Sun. Around 20th June each year the Sun is overhead at 23½º North, the Tropic of Cancer. Around 20th December the Sun is overhead at 23½º South, the Tropic of Capricorn. The movement of the thermal equator shifts the belts of planetary winds and pressure systems to the north and to the south annually.
