Abstract:

The volume provides climatological summaries for airfields and climatic areas in Africa Northern Half. The summaries are presented by country in alphabetical order, using a two-letter code as shown in the Index. Within the countries, summaries are arranged according to numbered climatic areas, and by increasing WMO Station Index Numbers within the climatic areas. An arbitrary station number is used where WMO Index Numbers are not assigned. Maps are included to delineate areas and station locations. Climatic areas have been selected as being nearly homogeneous climatologically, but considerable variation may exist between locations in an area at a specific time because of topography and other factors. Climatological summaries for these areas follow those for the included airfields. Author
