Druyan, L.M., and M. Fulakeza, 2005: Mesoscale climate analysis over West Africa. CLIVAR Exch., 10, no. 3, 34-35.

The study focuses on the West African climate during August, the month marking the farthest northward advance of monsoonal rains. Characteristics of westward propagating precipitation maxima associated with African wave disturbances (AWD) are analyzed from two independent sources of data. In a recent CLIVAR Exchanges issue, Ward et al. (2004) stressed the importance of studying the interannual variability of such synoptic disturbances over West Africa in order to better understand the predictability of the summer monsoon climate. Detecting and monitoring AWD associated precipitation over this data-sparse region is paramount to these objectives.
