Definition The tropics have been historically defined as lying between the Tropic of Cancer and Tropic of Capricorn, located at 23.45° north and south latitude respectively.<ref>{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=book }}</ref> Recent studies suggest that the tropics migrated an additional 2.5° of latitude outward from the equator between 1982 and 2007.<ref>{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=web }}</ref> The poleward fringe of the subtropics is approximately at the 38th parallel north and south, though it extends farther poleward along western sides of continents and less poleward near eastern sides of continents.<ref>{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=web }}</ref>
