内容 研究概要:A time-series analysis on the seasonal and interannual time scales has been applied to ground-observed rainfall data, NOAA-derived normalized difference vegetation index, and mixing layer temperature data of objective analysis for the western Sahel region. The results suggested that rainfall anomalies that are produced over western Sahel during a short rainy season are maintained in the land surface (soil moisture/vegetation) anomalies persisting over the following dry season. The land surface anomalies may function as transmitter of the rainfall anomalies to the next rainy season.
