The African Monsoon Multidisciplinary Analyses-Model Intercomparison Project (AMMA-MIP) was developed within the framework of the AMMA project. It is a relatively light intercomparison and evaluation exercise of both global and regional atmospheric models, focused on the study of the seasonal and intraseasonal variations of the climate and rainfall over the Sahel. Taking advantage of the relative zonal symmetry of the West African climate, one major target of the exercise is the documentation of a meridional cross section made of zonally averaged (10°W–10°E) outputs. This paper presents the motivations and design of the exercise, and it discusses preliminary results and further extensions of the project.
