Meteorological objects

MISVA is built on the concept of meteorological objects to be followed by forecasters to improve the forecast. The list here below presents the objects to be monitored to anticipate the evolution of convective systems or of the precipitation modulation during the monsoon season.

  1. The West African Monsoon (WAM)
  2. Oceans
  3. Dépression thermique (Heat Low)
  4. Interactions with mid-latitudes
  5. African Eastern Waves (AEWs) and the African Easterly Jet (AEJ)
  6. Equatorial Waves (MJO, Rossby and Kelvin waves etc.)
  7. Regional intraseasonal modes
  8. Convection
