English term or phrase: northerly and southerly latitudes
This issue appears to increase at northerly and southerly latitudes.

Considering the concept of latitude, do you think that I would be wrong if I translate the sentence above as "este problema parece estar aumentando em todas as latitudes"?

Thank you for your time!

latitudes mais altas, para o norte e para o sul


Explanation:
As all locations on Earth have a latitude, be it north or south (with the exception of places on the Equator), the use of the term here has to mean something more. I understand it to mean "at higher latitudes", that is, closer to the Poles than to the Equator.

The example below refers to "far northerly or southerly latitudes", i.e. VERY close to the Poles. As latitude is a measure of degrees from the Equator, it starts at zero at the Equator and reaches 90 degrees at the Poles. So "latitudes mais altas" suggests latitudes that are somewhat removed from the Equator.

Example sentence(s):
  • They occur near the earth's poles and are therefore rarely seen outside the far northerly or southerly latitudes.
