Research Activities For the West African population, any intra-seasonal rainfall variability impacts severely on the local agricultural and water resources, with equally severe consequences on health. This is especially true for the population living in the semi-arid Sahel region which endures the full impact of the African easterly Jet - African easterly wave system. Improved skillful prediction of the monsoon rains over longer time-scales would be of enormous benefit, aiding in the mitigation of high impact situations events such as the flooding during the summer of 2007, 2008, 2009, and the drought conditions of the last few decades (Cornforth et al., The Royal Meteorological Society's 2009 Conference, 29 June- 2 July 2009). We then propose in our research to perform Statistical analyses of in situ data as well as those collected from satellites, reanalyses such as wind, sea level pressure, sea surface temperature, skin temperature, relative humidity, precipitations… to investigate the mechanisms involved in the seasonal cycle and the intraseasonal variability of the air-sea-land interactions in the Gulf of Guinea.
