The existence of African easterly waves (AEWs) north of the African easterly jet (AEJ) core with maximum amplitude at low levels has been confirmed and clarified using radiosonde data and the U.K. Meteorological Office global model analysis from the hurricane season of 1995. At Bamako (12.58N, 8.08W) the AEWs were characterized mainly by maximum amplitudes at the level of the AEJ (around 700 mb), whereas at Dakar (14.78N, 17.58W) the waves were characterized by maxima between 850 and 950 mb… CONTINUE READING
