Abstract

By use of empirical models, the required heat-and water-balance parameters were derived from readily available meteorological data. Spatial patterns of the mean annual values of the heat-and water-balance components are discussed, and necessary maps constructed. Important climatic indexes are derived. Areas north of 14N fall within the arid and semiarid zones, with increasing aridity toward the southern margins of the Sahara Desert.
