Location is everything

This table illustrates the differences between different locations in the Vega Baja.

There are only a few kilometres between Torrevieja and Guardamar but one is at the top of the table and the other the bottom.

NB 104,8 l/m2 is equivalent to 4.13 inches of rain and 12,4 equals 0.49 inches.

In Britain, they talk about the amount of rain in inches. It is calculated by measuring the depth of water accumulated independent of  the area. 

In Spain, we talk about the number of litres accumulated in a square metre which is of course different.
