FIG. 1.

Monthly variation of available solar energy.

FIG. 2.

Seasonal variations of aerosol optical depth, diffuse radiation, and direct normal irradiation values.

FIG. 3.

Seasonal cycle of rainfall (mm/day).

Image of FIG. 4.
FIG. 4.

Frequency distribution of the aerosol optical depth for the annual mean (top), the dry season (left), and the rainy season (right).

Image of FIG. 5.
FIG. 5.

Daily aerosol optical depth values during 2006.

Image of FIG. 6.
FIG. 6.

Lidar aerosol extinction during a clear sky day (top panel) and an intermediate day (bottom panel) during the dry season (left) and the rainy season (right). Due to the strong aerosol loading, the lidar was not able to measure the extinction during the polluted day cases.

FIG. 7.

Satellites images (Aqua) of cloud cover and dust loading during a clear sky day (top panel), an intermediate day (mid panel), and a polluted day (bottom panel) during the dry season (left) and the rainy season (right). The location of Mbour station is represented by the blue circle. Red points represent biomass burning events.
