Description du jeu de données
RésuméInventory of the existing stations, data retrieving and validation, equipments upgrading and maintenance, eventual new stations. Goal: documentation and survey of the costal oceanic variations all along the North of Gulf of Guinea coasts (Iviry Coast, Ghana, Togo, Benin, Nigeria).
Strategie d'observationDocumentation and survey of the costal upwelling and linkage with coastal oceanic conditions and precipitation. Autonomeous ONSET thermometers were intalled during 3 years in RCI and then recovered at the IR Center in Abidjan. They could be re-installed in the next months. A thermometer has been installed in July at Cotonou (Bénin). Other installations are planed at Lomé and São Tomé. Concerning the tide gauges, installations are in progress in the framework of the ODINAFRICA program. Contacts are effective with some African scientists in charge of this program.
