Abstract
Sub-Saharan Africa as whole is the region of the world which experienced the largest relative decrease in rainfall during the past fifty years. Significant researches have been conducted in order to understand the mechanism of tropical precipitation in a general way, particularly those governing the disturbances rain storm in the Sahelian zone. The AMMA project whose objective is to improve our knowledge and understanding of the African Monsoon and to study its variability at different scales is also part of this dynamic. In AMMA 2006 SOP2 and SOP3 phases, impressive means were deployed to study the African monsoon. A large amount of data was collected, giving the opportunity to track all the convective systems observed in the period from 25 May to 30 September 2006. In this context, the work described in paper is to track these systems and to identify their conditions of genesis and dissipation.
