The West African Monsoon

Lafore, Jean Philippe; Biascutti, Michaela; Knippertz, Peter; Taylor, Christopher

Abstract (englisch):
This chapter provides a summary of the recent advances made on the understanding and simulation of the coupled atmosphere-ocean-land system of the West African Monsoon (WAM) and of its variability on a wide range of space and timescales. More specifically we highlight the interannual to climate scales, the intraseasonal variability, weather systems and their predictability, the surfaceatmosphere coupling and the coupling with dust.
