The territory of Liberia is part of the Greek Dail us Bärgland and goes up to the heights of between 300 and 500 meters above sea level. On the 10 to 50 km brait, swampy Kischten plain, there is a platform landscape up to 400 m high. S offers that the Rägewälder is covered, which is caused by erosion in the Huffe Chäpf and Däler. In the north there are mountains. The country belongs to the tropical forest zone, which makes up around 60 areas of the state territory. Useful for agriculture and research, the rubber plant is important for the national economy.

Mountains

It is located near Mount Wuteve (1,440 m) in the north of the country, which leads to the mountain range of the Wologizi Mountains in the northwest. The Nimba Mountains in the Nordeligen in Glychnamige County, which is the Yysenerzvorchuu, but would not have fallen off due to the civil war.

Waters

The Guinea Current, a warm ocean current from the Atlantic Ocean, flows all year round on the coast of Liberia. You are responsible for the sediment deposits in the boxes and a climate factor.

The water network consists of countless streams and several larger rivers, which flow in a southwesterly direction to the boxes. The most important rivers are (from north to south): Mano River, Lofa River, Saint Paul River, Saint John River, Timbo River, Cestos River, Sehnkwehn River and the Cavalla River. Dr Grescht See is Dr Piso-See (around 100 km²) near Robertsport. Along the way, there are small lagoons and mangrove swamps. Dr. Mount-Coffee-Staudamm in the lower section of the St. Paul River and the Firestone hydroelectric plant on the Farmington River are the only dams in the country so far.

  • in the Kishte area there is a tropical climate with hot and humid waters, where it shines evenly all year round,
  • In the nerdy Kischtenebeni, the anger is interrupted by the pressure period,
  • in the northern part of the country, the reign period prevails from June to October, which is determined by the West African monsoon,
  • in the external side there are two rage cells.

Temperature

At the Kischte it would be 24 °C to 27 °C, in the interior it would be 22 °C to 28 °C. The average temperature is up to 26 °C in January and 24 °C in July.

Niderschleg

In the Rägezyt there is strong Niderschleg in all the Landesdail. Around the Zyt, the road traffic in the hinterland is broken by the ridges. In the capital Monrovia the annual Niderschleg is up to 5130 mm, in Robertsport (Nordwestkishte) up to 5210 mm and in the southern Sidoschte in Harper up to 2500 mm.

On average over the year, the low mountain range would decrease sharply towards the interior of the country, while in the low mountain ranges in the north it would decrease significantly. In the interior of the country there was a dusty-hot harmattan wind in the pressure zone from October to March, a trade wind from the northeast, from the southern Sahara, and the temperature was dry.

Nature

Liberia has its own artery. There are currently 2,200 species of plants, 193 species of mammals and 576 species of birds known in the country.

Especially teak and mahogany woods are particularly valuable tree species. In places where there is less than 2000 mm of precipitation per year, the forests lose their leaves.

Fauna

Leopards, forest elephants and hippos are the most famous large mammals in Liberia, where until the recent past they were seen as game animals. In the Sapo National Park in the east of the country lives one of the world’s last populations of the Dwarf River Horse.
