Abstract
I N PREPARING HIS MAP showing the climatic classification of East Africa, Sansom (1954) used the Thornthwaite (J948) system of classification and the Thornthwaite method of estimating potential evapotranspiration (or evaporative demand). The areas denoted as having moist climates appear to be optimistically large when compared with observations of the vegetational complexes there. Similarly, Carter (1954) used the Thornthwaite method of estimating evapotranspiration when preparing the water balances for selected stations in East and Central Africa, and Howe (1953) also used this method in preparing a climatic classification of Central Africa:
