Abstract :

A method is described for converting daily weather station data from African weather stations to an annual climate factor, which has summarized the soil climate and its influence on soil biological activity in one variable. This method is used on weather data sets from West and Central Africa and Kenya and a map is presented that shows various results from different climate zones.
