dc.descriptionResearch note
dc.descriptionAbstract: Extensive areas of North Africa and Southwest Asia have warmest month mean maximum temperatures higher than the mean maximum temperatures for Yuma Proving Ground (YPG) during the 5-month summer testing period. The areas of exceedance are substantially more widespread when determined by comparison with a temperature value of 104°F, the mean maximum temperature at YPG for May, the coolest of the summer season testing months, than they are when determined by comparison with a value of 113°F, the mean maximum temperature at YPG for July, the warmest month. The most prominent area of temperature exceedance is the desert region of North Africa, which is hotter than Yuma at all levels of comparison used in this study.
