Abstract

Droughts and floods are important events which directly affect African water resources. The causes of droughts occurring in semiarid regions are not yet well understood. Here we investigate features controlling the dry and wet seasons in North African tropical regions. Data used in this study are ISCCP C2 and Nimbus-7 ERB. We found that changes in surface albedo are majorparameters effecting dry and wet seasons. Also, surface longwave radiationand cloud radiative forcing are found to be good indicator parameters to diagnose this phenomena. (C) 1999 Published by Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
