UCadMet network provides meteorological observations in an area of the world where there are very few scientific observations despite the great importance of the meteorological phenomena that occur there. UCadMet is a joint meteorological network of The Complutense University of Madrid (UCM) and the Cheikh Anta Diop University of Dakar (UCAD) in the heart of Sahel region in Africa. Robust SATEL serial radio modems transmit data in harsh environmental conditions.

Meteorological phenomena in Sahel are connected to the global climate. African monsoon determines the wet season throughout the Sahel region and the genesis of atmospheric and ocean conditions that give rise to hurricanes cross the Atlantic to the Caribbean. The influence of weather and climate on the economy and development of this region is enormous in terms of agriculture, fisheries, and health. The importance of assessing the meteorological conditions and climate in this region of Africa is even higher in the context of climate change which causes an increase in extreme phenomena and a change in the normal behavior of temperature and precipitation variability.
