INFLUENCE OF THE ATLANTIC, PACIFIC AND INDIAN OCEANS ON SAHEL RAINFALL

Abstract:

Folland et al. have reported that persistently dry and wet periods of several years in the Sahel have been accompanied by global-scale patterns of sea-surface temperature (SST) anomaly. They also demonstrated that the response of a general circulation model (GCM) of the atmosphere to an observed composite SST difference field between a number of such dry and wet periods showed substantial reduction in Sahel rainfall compared with values from a simulation with climatological SSTs. I examine he...
