In order to make geomorphological assessment of termite activity, total volume of termite mounds per unit area has been estimated through the procedure of morphological typology, simple measurement of dimensions, and observation of areal frequency, of termite mounds in selected locations in several countries of Africa. Although different with species and locations, the value is, except extreme cases, between 1000 and 10 000 m3/km2. -from Authors
