The HAPEX-Sahel experiment was carried out in Niger, West Africa, in 1992 and 1992, with an intensive observation period from August to October 1992. It was aimed at improving the parametrization of interactions between land surface and atmosphere on the GCM grid box scale. Remote sensing was combined with hydrological and meteorological modelling to develop aggregation techniques that can be used in large-scale estimates of the hydrological and meteorological behaviour of large areas in the Sahel. The experimental strategy is described and some preliminary results are presented.
