Rain-fed agriculture is an important source of food and income for the people in West Africa. Being able to accurately represent the West African Monsoon in weather and climate models will hopefully allow us to predict the onset of the monsoon, as well as seasonal rainfall totals. Also, if we can represent the monsoon in present climate simulations, we might be able to understand how the monsoon will change in a warming climate.
