Trend, decadal and interannual variability in annual rainfall of subequatorial and tropical North Africa (1900-1994)



Trend, decadal and interannual variability in annual rainfall of subequatorial and tropical North Africa (1900-1994)



International Journal of Climatology 17(8): 785-805



Annual rainfall anomalies over sub-equatorial and northern tropical Africa were analysed. The main modes of variation in the annual rainfall field were related to the same frequencies of variation in several sea-surface temperature (SST) indexes chosen in key-areas.
