East Asia Summer Monsoon Geo_Eco_region (EASM Geo_Eco_region for short), located in eastern of Asia from 54°25′31.79″N to 13°14′34.61″N,and 156°30′49.37″E to 98°52′27.36″E, is a summer monsoon affected region.

The human activities are very active and most metropolises of Asia with long history are located in this region. The region is identified (1) from the SEA region with the index of 16 ℃ of the mean temperature in January; (2) from the ROTW (Roof of the World Geo_eco_region) with the 4000 m above sea level and the 7° in slope; (3) from the Asian Arid and semi-arid geo_eco_region in the northwest with 400 mm precipitation per year; (4) from the Asia-Euro Taiga Forest geo_eco_region in north with the TPW (Total Perceptible Water) >40 mm, distribution line between coniferous and broad-leaved mixed forest and coniferous forest, as well as the local land forms.; (6) in the eastern part, the region covers all of the islands in eastern Asian, including the Kuril Islands, Japan islands, Ryukyu Islands, Northern part of Taiwan Island, and the Northern Mariana Islands.
