Final Report



The specific issues to be addressed at the workshop involve

(1) analysis of the spatial and temporal patterns of variability across the entire region

(2) determination of whether there are any identifiable trends in vegetation biomass over the region

(3) determination of whether these trends and patterns of variability are systematic and can be linked to long-term changes in rainfall over the Sahel or other sources of interannual variability associated with ENSO

(4) discussion of the possibility of using new satellite data sets from TERRA, SPOT-Vegetation and AQUA combined with in situ measurements in the large scale monitoring of the Sahel at higher spatial resolution in the coming years
