  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
