But when there is a brejo there, the humid zone does not occupy both slopes, but always the windward slope, or barlavento. In common terminology, many serras are nothing more than escarpments of a planalto (plateau) or the escarpment of a flat chapada, and the presence or absence of brejos depends upon the factors of exposure to humid air masses.
