        A search of the early meteorological literature uncovers just as much confusion and ambiguity about the ITCZ and its historical origin. Nieuwolt (), in his book on tropical meteorology, suggests that the concept goes back to Hadley’s () model. Hadley, however, did not mention the convergence, but it is implicit in his model of the vertical by: tropical meteorology Download tropical meteorology or read online books in PDF, EPUB, Tuebl, and Mobi Format.

Tsoar and Pye () estimate that there is a minimum aeolian accumulation rate of between and 1 mm/yr in order to be rated as loess deposition. The aeolian accumulation rate over the whole Sahel and Sudan-Guinean region is about mm/yr (Orange and Gac, ), distinctly lower than this central northern Nigeria, accumulations of – g/m 2 /yr were recorded in the region. For Whom is this Book Meant? This Book is meant for the following classes of readership: University students who already have basic knowledge of synoptic and dynamic Meteorology at an under-graduate level, but want more knowledge of tropical meteorology.   This book is designed as an introductory course in Tropical Meteorology for the graduate or advanced level undergraduate student.
