Abstract

To illustrate the possible range of climatic conditions on hill areas within the country, the accumulated degree days at various heights were calculated for major meteorological stations. Also, the spatial variation in the frequency of early years, defined according to Beddows, and the rainfall regimes of a number of stations are included. The paper illustrates the causes of climatic variation, its possible magnitude and thus aids the interpretation of available climatic data by those interested in the utilisation of hill lands.
