GEOGRAPHY
Togo consists of a narrow strip (from 50 to 120 km wide) which stretches for approx. 600 km between 6th and 11th latitude N. From the geological point of view, the territory represents a very ancient section of the African continent that was never revived either by showy dislocations or by orogenetic movements: they can be recognized at the E and S of a Precambrian area, consisting of the most ancient formations of the continental base (mica schists, gneisses, quartzites, with granite intrusions), and a Paleozoic areato W and to N. In its morphological features the territory appears as a succession of different bands that from the sea are almost parallel towards the interior. The coast is low and sandy, bordered by lagoons, ponds, small lakes that stretch along the coast; beyond it stretches a hilly region, with a depth varying from 30 to 40 km, and which reaches an altitude of 100-200 meters. Even further inland, the relief, while retaining its typical senile appearance, gradually rises and takes the form of a plateau over the 400 m on which the Monti del Togo rise (1020 m), a section of the wide ridge that separates the basins of the Niger and Volta rivers; they cross the country in the submeridian sense, constituting the most characteristic morphological element. Oti. § The hydrographic network is quite simple. The orographic axis of the Togo Mountains in fact constitutes the main watershed line of the country, dividing it into two large basins, both tributaries of the Gulf of Guinea: to the NW that of the Oti, to the SE that of the Mono; both are rich in water in the rainy season, almost dry in the dry period. The Oti, which was born in Benin with the name of Pendjari, marks the border between Togo and Ghana for a long stretch, then enters the latter state where it flows, after a total course of approx. 500 km, in the Volta lake. More important for Togo, however, is the Mono, which crosses the entire country, enriched by a range of tributaries, and pays directly to the Gulf of Guinea after having marked the border with Benin in its lower course. § Broadly speaking, the country can be divided into two distinct climatic regions: northern Togo, characterized by a rain regime that is close to the Sudanese tropical one with a single rainy season corresponding to the summer months and a dry season from October to April; southern Togo, characterized by a sub-equatorial regime similar to that of neighboring Benin with two rainy seasons (from March to June and from September to October) when the sun passes and returns to its zenith, interspersed with two short dry seasons. The rains are not very abundant (770 mm per year in Lomé) but increase in the internal mountainous areas, exceeding 1000 mm in the central section and reaching 1700 mm in the southwestern mountainous belt, more exposed to the humid winds coming from the Gulf of Guinea; decrease again in the northern flat area. Also with regard to thermal conditions, altitude is of considerable importance; in general the average temperatures of all months of the year remain around 27 ºC on the coast, 30 ºC in the North, with fluctuations between the extreme averages of less than 5 ºC but with very sensitive diurnal variations; the higher areas have less marked thermal excesses and therefore milder temperatures.
