This area also is called Meteorological Equator. TROPICAL OR TEPID MASSES In accordance with Coutinho (1991), are air masses that the temperature is a half term between equatorial hot air and polar cold air for being formed next to the tropics of Capricrnio and Cncer. Having humidity below of the dew point, determining barren and half-barren climates. They present limpid air and steady because they present negative gradients, that is, the temperature diminishes from top to bottom. This process causes the existence of an inversion layer, or another abnormality, as for example, the mass to be more cold in low hotter on. The tepid masses are divided in: Tepid Kalaariana, Tepid Atlantic and Tepid Pacific.

Tepid Massa Kalaariana (MTK) This mass moves in all the stations of the year in the desert of the Kalaari, in Africa, for the Brazilian northeast coast of south for north. In the winter, it goes until the south of Mato Grosso, causing the dry winter of Central Brazil. According to Coutinho (1991), the Tepid Kalaariana is composed of two layers: a cool and humid inferior, had its oceanic trip, getting rid in the coast provoking relief rains, influenced for Frente Polar Atlntica (FPA). To another superior he is hot and he dries, acting in the interior. Thus, the Kalaariana mass has its stability guaranteed for an inversion layer that remains the entire year. Atlantic Tepid Massa (MTA) is originated in the centers of high pressures of the South Atlantic and presents sea characteristics, beyond being one of the main masses that influence the climatic types of Brazil. It possesss temperature and raised humidity, and by means of chains of north-east east and the tropicalidade of the Brazilian climate is attracted for the ciclonais areas that if form on the continent, bringing much humidity and heat, strengthening. Mendona (2007), affirms this mass acts all during the year in the climates of Brazil, mainly in the littoral portion, that had its relief, provokes rain sufficiently, mainly in the summer.

This analysis if of the one under the perspective of the space. ‘ ‘ Geography is a reading. one determined reading of the reality. It is a reading of the point of view of espacialidade’ ‘ (CAVALCANTI, 2001, p.12). In the urban context some elements send the dynamics internal of the city: production, the circulation and the housing. This last element gains in the cities complex contours and guides its space arrangement imposing.

The circulation also is an essential element mainly because, so that the life in the cities occurs is necessary that the people for it circulate. However, it is on the aspect of the production that if it intends to observe the dynamics of the urban space more happens frequently. The production mentions the activities to it in the daily life of the people who live in the city and in it they act, and the space arrangement of decurrent them. Amongst the many activities produced for the man it is observed of leisure, of education, work and rest. The activities of work because atreladas the economic objectives they confer to the production paper of prominence in the configuration of the urban space dynamics. Space and economic activity closely are related and as typical activities of the urban economy, agree to cite to on a industry and the commerce. The commerce withholds north-eastern of Brazil, particularly in the Maranho, an excellent function. Considering itself that the region ‘ ‘ it was colonized in function of a economy of exportation, directed toward the European market, is natural that in it if it has developed, since the first times, intense activity comercial.’ ‘ (ANDRADE, 1987, P. 134) ‘ ‘ The responsible economic system for the regional occupation, being come back toward the external market and later also for the market of other regions of the country, made with that the great regional polar regions, the urban centers of bigger dinamicidade, were the ports – So Lus, $fortaleza, Recife, Salvador.

Then, the proper inhabitants had started to open and to defray some stretches of the road. In the region of Diamantina the process of development of the road net extremely slow had to the rough relief making it difficult the opening and the maintenance of the roads and the lack of local interest for the opening of the same ones, persisting still the transport of muares until middle of the decade of 1960. The BR-259/367 had its tarring concluded only in 1968. In relation to this, Martins affirms that: Only (…) in the decade of 1960 the troops of muares had half lost the condition of main of linking between the city, the districts, the towns and the diverse cities of the Valley of the Jequitinhonha under the commercial, politician-administrative and educational influence of Diamantina. (…) the combination of railroad and highways paved in entorno of Diamantina would have broken inertia and the low economic dynamism associates to the old system of circulation (MARTINS, 2003, p.167) In years 50, it was initiated construction of highway BR-367 binding Belo Horizonte the Diamantina, passing for Curvelo. After the pavement of the stretch between Curvelo and Diamantina in 1968, the highway becomes the main access the city, before made way Conceio of the Weeds Inside. In the following years the road was constructed to a variant deviating to prevent I pass through that it of vehicles, mainly heavy, caused upheavals for the population of just the busy part low of Diamantina, where it passed the original Highway. In recent years a systematic occupation of the edges of the highway is verified, in the Belo Horizonte direction and the portion the northwest of the city, around the variant constructed for the shunting line of the transit heavy.
