Contributions Phase 1
AMMA-Africa (or AMMANET)
Brings together scientists from many African nations and coordinates their contribution to AMMA. It is based on proposals made by individual scientists and small teams in universities and research centers.
The review process produced a science plan for Africa called the PIAF : Implementation Plan AMMA Africa. Efforts are now underway to seek funding in African and elsewhere for the various working packages of the PIAF.
AMMA-France is the French AMMA contribution
which is being funded by all French research organizations involved in environmental sciences.
Within AMMA-France more refined strategies have been for instance elaborated for the water cycle studies or the use of land-surface models for producing surface states. The oceanographic observations within AMMA are predominantly contributed by AMMA-France.
Organisations that support the AMMA project
Centre National d’Etudes Spatiales (CNES)
AMMA Germany is a consortium of several German universities and research centres
involved in the African Monsoon Multidisciplinary Analyses project :
Institute for Geophysics and Meteorology, University of Cologne
AMMA-UK is a project funded by NERC and bringing together the British AMMA community.
The proposed research concentrates on the following topics within AMMA :
Land surface and atmosphere interaction,
A large instrumental deployment is also planed within AMMA-UK. The project is headed by a Scientific Steering Committee (SSC) which will coordinate the scientific and observational work-packages and ensure a smooth execution of the project.
AMMA-US gathers a number of American scientists.
A Scientific Steering Group (SSG) has been established for AMMA-US and its first action has been to write a science plan. The US proposal emphasized research on weather, climate and aerosol over West Africa and the downstream tropical Atlantic.
AMMA-EU is the project funded by the European Commission.
It has been selected as an Integrated Project under the call entitled "Hot spots in the Earth System".
