Data basis and methodology

The data from the individual measuring stations are based on the archives of the German Weather Service, individual values averaged and supplemented by own elements. In order to determine a representative national average, average values were first calculated for each part of the country, which were then summarized at the national level. There are 2 stations in Equatorial Guinea itself. In 3 cases, neighboring but nearby weather stations were also used to obtain more accurate values.
