This map illustrates estimated total rainfall accumulation for Nigeria. 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 -31 October 2010, with a 1 week overview from 25 - 31 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 & has not yet been validated in the field.
