associated with the radiative imbalance in the SHL ( Milton et al. 2008 ), air–sea interactions over the tropical eastern Atlantic Ocean ( Brandt et al. 2011 ), and the representation of deep convection in the Sahel and its effects on the WAM ( Garcia-Carreras et al. 2013 ; Marsham et al. 2013 ; Birch et al. 2014 ). Particularly, biases in sea surface temperatures (SSTs) have a large effect on precipitation and the WAM circulation ( Biasutti et al. 2008 ; Hourdin et al. 2010 ; Roehrig et al. 2013

resolution and SSTAs [contour interval (CI): 0.25 K] as prescribed for the 21C simulation. The model domain, resolution, and physical parameterizations are chosen based on testing and include the Yonsei University planetary boundary layer ( Hong et al. 2006 ), Monin–Obukhov surface layer, new Kain–Fritsch cumulus convection ( Kain 2004 ), Purdue–Lin microphysics ( Chen and Sun 2002 ), Rapid Radiative Transfer Model (RRTM) longwave radiation ( Mlawer et al. 1997 ), the Dudhia shortwave radiation ( Dudhia
