Article
Rainfall from the October-November-December (OND) short rains season over East Africa (EA, 5S-20N, 28E-52E) were analysed during the 1983-2010 period using state-of-the-art observational datasets. Links among satellite-derived rainfall (Climate Hazards group InfraRed Rainfall with Station data, CHIRPS), sea surface temperature (Hadley Centre Sea ic...

East Africa (EA, 5°S–20°N, 28°E–52°E) is experiencing an extreme interannual variability of its rainfall regime with economic and societal consequences on a population that mainly sustains on rain-fed agriculture. The complexity of the rainfall regime is the result of the overlap of factors ranging from large-scale tropical drivers (including sever...

Full-text available
Estimating space-time variability of precipitation is an important task in East Africa, considering the observed increased frequency of extreme events, drought episodes in particular. These events deeply affect the population with implications on agriculture and consequently food security. Daily accumulated precipitation time series from satellite...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
West Africa (WA), particularly the Sahel region, has experienced a long-term drought with dramatic consequences during the last three decades of the 20th century. The ability of the CMCC GCM was tested to reproduce the main features of the West African Monsoon (WAM) system through a set of experiments to understand the role of sea surface tempera...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The daily accumulated precipitation from two widely used satellite products, the Africa Rainfall Climatology version 2 (ARC2) and TRMM-Multi Precipitation Analysis (TMPA) 3B42 version 7, are exploited to extract the spatial variability and temporal evolution of precipitation over East Africa (EA, - 5°S–20°N, 28°E–52°E) at 0.25° spatial resolution d...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
East Africa experienced in the 2001 -2011 time period some of the worst drought events to date, culminated with the high-impact drought in 2010-2011. The frequency and impacts of these extreme events require a continuous monitoring of precipitation, as a key variable for the inclusion of these phenomena in regional climatological studies and their...
Thesis
State of the art global climate models poorly simulate the West-African (WA) climate, as reported in the last IPCC report. The ability of the model to reproduce (1) realistic distribution of sea surface temperatures (SSTs) and modes of variability in the tropical ocean, (2) variability in the Inter-Tropical Convergence Zone position, (3) feedback a...
Presentation
State of the art of global climate models poorly simulate the West-African climate, as reported in the last IPCC report. For instance, there is still an excessive spatial spread across the existing different climate models in the cumulative rainfall over the Sahel although all of them tend to capture the mean seasonal migration of rainfall over thi...
