Short summary
In this paper, we present a meta-analysis of nitrate contamination in groundwater at the pan-African scale. A nitrate data set is constructed based on publications in the web of sciences, and combined with high-resolution generic spatial environmental attributes. A statistical model explains 65 % of the variation of nitrate contamination in groundwater in terms of generic spatial attributes. Nitrate contamination of groundwater at the pan-African scale is mainly affected by population density.
