–2003 were obtained from the same DMNs/NWSs as the daily rainfall totals, but only for synoptic stations, which reduced the original number of stations involved to 83 ( Table 1 ). Also, only 3 yr of these data could be obtained from the Nigerian Meteorological Department because of that country’s lack of digital daily data. After applying the same quality control and station selection procedures as for the above rainfall data, the final Tmin dataset included 62 stations ( Fig. 2 , Table 1 ). The lack of

, the SeaWinds Scatterometer on the Quick Scatterometer (QuikSCAT) satellite can also provide accurate observations of sea surface vector winds (e.g., Liu et al. 1998 , 2000 ; Chelton et al. 2004 ). These high-quality satellite data can now resolve TIW-related mesoscale signals both in the atmosphere and in the ocean. In particular, satellite-based high-resolution measurements have shown observational evidence of mesoscale air–sea coupling related to TIWs in the eastern tropical oceans (e
