winds, and convection in this region (e.g., Dommenget and Latif 2000 ), coupled models tend to do poorly at predicting these SSTs, with many models exhibiting strong positive temperature biases. Third, while the basic monsoon dynamics in West Africa is reasonably well understood, the intraseasonal and interannual variabilities of the monsoon rains in West Africa depend on a rich array of locally interacting processes, involving deep convection, soil moisture and vegetation properties ( Taylor et al

downstream field campaign: characterizations of tropical cyclogenesis, SAL properties, cloud microphysics, precipitation processes, and satellite validation. Aircraft and enhanced ground measurements in western Africa and Cape Verde were used to achieve these objectives. These measurements over the tropical eastern Atlantic were the first since the Global Atmospheric Research Program (GARP) Atlantic Tropical Experiment (GATE) field campaign, where aircraft have successfully investigated tropical
