The Campaign

The NASA African Monsoon Multidisciplinary Analyses (NAMMA) was a NASA-led campaign that served as an extension of the international African Monsoon Multidisciplinary Analyses (AMMA) project. It was conducted to study African easterly waves (AEW) and the effect that the Saharan Air Layer (SAL) has on AEWs and their potential to become tropical systems. NAMMA took place between August and September of 2006 in and around the Cape Verde Islands. Four aircraft and a host of ground instruments enabled sampling of the SAL as well as the near storm environment when tropical cyclone development occurred. NAMMA was funded by NASA’s ROSES 2005 program and NOAA.
