Titre : Regional Climate Model Studies of the Sahel Summer Climate

Organismes NSF : Division of Atmospheric and Geospace Sciences (AGS)

Durée : January 1, 1998 — December 31, 2000

Description
This research is a continuation of earlier successful research with a previous NSF grant. This study proposes to investigate Sahel climate processes using models (The FSU regional climate Model and the NASA GSFC GCM) and Observations CEP reanalysis). Areas explored will include African Wave disturbances, their synoptic and mesoscale features and their relationship to the Sahel droughts, SST anomalies, and landscape heterogeneity. A successful conclusion of this study will help to understand the processes at work for the Sahel climate and will assist forecasting of Sahel climate.
