This campaign is planned as a multinational collaboration based in subSaharan West Africa (probably Niamey, Niger) during the summer of 2006. The science areas are multidisciplinary, including land surface and boundary layer studies, convective storm dynamics and microphysics, hydrological studies, aerosol transport and radiative interactions (including mineral dust and products of biomass burning), atmospheric chemistry and chemical transport, and synoptic dynamics. Due to the multidisciplinary character of the research, most instruments could be required. Aircraft work will be carried out in 2 special observation periods, SOP2 (15 July-15 August) and SOP3 (15 August - 15 September) in 2006.
