This map illustrates estimated total rainfall accumulation for Benin. This total estimate was derived from the Tropical Rainfall Monitoring Mission (TRMM) precipitation dataset at a spatial resolution of approximately 25km for this region, and covers the dates from 1 to 13 October 2010.
It is possible that precipitation levels may have been underestimated for local areas, and is not a substitute for ground station measurements.
The mean average rainfall totals by district have also been calculated and displayed in the inset map and associated table.
This rainfall estimate is a preliminary result and has not yet been validated in the field.
