In the field
France mainland is far from the Tropics ! we owe a special thanks to all the collaborators and technicians that collect data on the field:
Frederic Cazenave is based in Ouagadougou to supervise the Super Site activities and operate the Xport radar.
All our collaborators from the observing systems in India (BVET http://bvet.omp.obs-mip.fr/), in south america (http://www.ore-hybam.org/) and in west africa  (http://www.amma-catch.org/) and their partners.
The PIRATA campaigns (http://www.brest.ird.fr/pirata/index.php) in the gulf of Guinea could provide additional offshore radio-sounding in 2013.
