Abstract : A climatological study of Northwest Africa, including Algeria, Tunisia, Morocco, Western Sahara, and the northern parts of Mauritania, Mali, and Niger. After describing the general geography of land areas in Northwest Africa, the major meteorological features of the entire study area are discussed. The geography and major climatic controls of each of the two 'climatic commonality' regions that constitute Northwest Africa are outlined in separate chapters, with a detailed description of each 'season,' including typical weather, clouds, visibility, winds, precipitation, temperature, and additional hazards.
