  abstract = {{Optical astrometric data for 1962-1982 has been reduced in order to
redetermine the earth rotation parameters. A homogeneous series of
z-terms of latitude observations has also been obtained. A total of 1461
z-terms at five-day intervals in the 20 years are given in this paper.
The typical precisions of the z-terms are of the order of + or - 0.014
arcsec for the first five years and from + or - 0.008 arecsec to + or -
0.005 arcsec for the following years.

  abstract = {{METEOSAT infrared and water vapor radiance data from the ISCCP dataset
are used to describe climatic characteristics for the months of July
1983, 1984 and 1985, corresponding to very different rainy seasons in
Sahelian Africa. Mean cloudiness distribution diurnal cycle of local
convection, life cycle of squall lines and drift velocities computed
from WV images are studied. The results and their interannual variations
are shown to be consistent with analyses from other data sources,
including conventional data. The utilization of both kinds of analyses
allows not only the validation of the satellite approach but also an
improved description of the climatic situations as different parameters
are inferred. The main cloud systems and circulation differences between
the driest and the wettest months studied are in general agreement with
previous observational and simulation studies comparing dry and wet

deriving the coefficients of the principal term of nutation. The derived
coefficients are in good agreement with similar previous astrometric
determinations (Feissel and Guinot, 1981; Capitaine and Xiao, 1982) with
improved formal errors, which are, in the present work, of the order of

  abstract = {{We have designed a cloud generation scheme for use in the LMD GCM. It
predicts the mixing ratio of the cloud's condensed water as a new
prognostic variable. At present it does not fully interact with the
radiation schemes, but the aim is to predict the cloud optical
properties. We have used the Meteosat/ISCCP data to evaluate this
scheme. Such a comparison allows us to place some constraints on the
coefficients which are used in the parameterizations, such as the
precipitation thresholds for the cloud's liquid water content and the
relative variability of water vapour within a grid box. There is
generally a good agreement between observed and simulated results,
although there appear some discrepancies in the cloud's apparent
